Phoenix Drywall Repair & Installation Contractors
Drywall, Enhancing the Design of Your Home!
The drywall services that are offered by TWD provide each customer the opportunity to diversity their project and home. Drywall improvements to your home provide a strong sense of style and dimension. Removal of a dropped ceiling can give a room the illusion of being much larger in size. You can even consider removing an interior wall to open up your space. Whatever the drywall need, from repairing cracks, holes and water damage to adding a touch of personality by converting pass-throughs into unique archways or incorporating new wall niches for shelving , TWD is skilled at helping you build your home around your lifestyle.
Acoustic Ceiling Texture, A Thing of the Past?
Years ago it was common to have an acoustic ceiling texture, also known as popcorn ceilings, in your home or garage. Times have changed, as styles and trends do. Though TWD can make necessary repairs to your ceilings with this particular texture when needed, it has become increasingly popular to have them scraped completely, particularly during remodeling projects. Although it may seem to be quite the project to remove all of the finish, we take great pride in protecting your furniture and belongings in the process. Areas are masked and have plastic applied in order to trap the debris from spreading. A new texture is applied to match the wall finish in your home creating a seamless transition and a new look for your room.
A Quick Look at Drywall Finishes
Not all drywall applications are the same. Our experienced tradesmen will use the drywall techniques that match your style and create cohesiveness with the rest of the home.
Skip TrowelThe most well-known, hand applied texture. The trowel is held to the wall at an angle and flattens the mud as it its moved, thus creating a skipping effect. The consistency of mud used can scale the texture down or generate a broad appearance for a larger open room.
A prominent texture that is sprayed on using a hopper. The mud is then knocked down or flattened using a knock down knife. This method has many variations depending on the consistency of the mud and the pressure (psi) of the hopper to create your desired look.
Imitating the rind of an orange, this texture is sprayed on using a hopper. The mud used is applied with an organized look. Infinite patterns and densities are created with this application depending on the consistency of mud used and the nozzle setting on the hopper. No finishing tools are needed to create this bumpy uniformed pattern.
Very similar to Orange Peel, the Splatter texture is sprayed through a hopper, but with a lighter consistency. The splatters create a random effect that imitates an unfinished texture.
A true Santa Fe texture is applied by hand using a drywall knife and has the appearance of being smooth from further distances. Up close however, it looks as if two separate layers of material were applied with one showing through the other in random areas. While similar to a Skip Trowel finish, it is applied with a higher percentage of coverage.
Not only do we provide high-quality drywall and plastering services, we also provide painting services to make your newly finished surface look it’s best.
We use them for drywall repairs and painting. They did extremely professional and excellent work. When I asked them what other work they do at Todd Whitaker design?,…… I was amazed. It seems they do everything except landscaping. I will definitely use them again and recommend them to neighbors and friends. I like the fact that they do smaller repairs and total remodeling. And... OH YES, they left everything clean and neat.
