A Complete Guide To Texturizing And Painting Drywall For Renovations Or New Construction

Installing drywall involves much more than sticking some sheets on the wall and calling it a day. Here's everything you need to know about making your walls and ceilings look their best, whether you're remodeling or building a house.


Installing


In reality, the first step toward perfect drywall begins before it's time to hang the Sheetrock. This is because the framing's quality significantly impacts how well your drywall turns out in the end. When the phoenix painting and drywall are installed, any out-of-square or incorrectly aligned studs will cause a wave in the material, preventing your walls from appearing smooth and level. Use a qualified framing contractor or, if you prefer to do it yourself, pay close attention to framing precisely to set up the best circumstances for later putting lovely drywall.


Texturing


The good news is that lovely wall textures may effectively hide tiny flaws in your drywall. Textured walls and ceilings are a well-liked method of enhancing a smooth surface with a bit of roughness, and they are used for personal aesthetic preferences and to hide flaws. You have a variety of alternatives when it comes to texturing your drywall, including:


  • Orange peel: This method gives a delicate pattern to walls and ceilings by giving them a feeling of being slightly lifted and a look akin to orange skin.
  • Knock-down: This thicker texture resembles orange peel and works well for walls and ceilings.
  • Popcorn: Ceilings are the only actual application for this rough texture.


But remember, it's better to leave the installation of popcorn ceilings to the experts. This texture requires specialized skills, creates a lot of clutter, and is often better left alone.


Painting


Before choosing your finalized wall color, you still have to prime the drywall after it has been put and, if desired, textured. Simply applying finish paint will produce a faded, subdued look and blotchy hue since new drywall may quickly absorb the stain. To prevent too much of your final coat from being absorbed into the drywall, apply a layer of specialty drywall primer or sealer to ensure you get the desired finish. The best approach to make drywall seem beautiful is to paint it with primer and an excellent tint that matches your decor.
