Getting to learn how to paint drywall is perhaps something that you can do on your own, given that you have acquired the basic painting skills. At the same time, you may even think of installing it on your own.
Drywall is a gypsum core that is often covered with paper of fiberglass. In the areas of the house like the bathroom and basement, fiberglass is used more often. On the other hand, paper covered drywalls are still the choice of many homeowners for different reasons- easy and simple to hang, budget-friendly, and looks really good once installed.
If you plan on doing it on your own, the first thing you have to bear in mind is to make sure that your drywall is attached to the wall studs. You can do this with screws or nails. It is good to invest in a screw gun also as it provides better results when it comes to installing screws. It will also help you save effort and spare you lots of trouble.
When you have hung your drywall sheets, you also need to tape and seal them with joint compound. Every layer of joint compound needs to dry first before you proceed to the application of the next layer. After taping and sealing the drywall with joint compound, you have to sand, prime, and paint.
Sanding is one of the most important steps as this will result in a uniform appearance, especially when there are bumpy areas. Priming is also equally important as it will fill in the cracks, even out spaces and make the paint adhere better. After the primer has fully dried, you can proceed to painting.
There is really not much difference when you paint the exterior and painting other types of walls. The floor area needs to be protected with a tarp and you should start painting in the corners to the middle of the wall. For more information on how to do this, you can read books and other resources available online.
But, if this job is something that you think you cannot do, no worries at all because you can always hire professional contractors to do it for you. If you have a drywall already installed, then you can just hire a painter. But if you haven’t started anything yet, then a full service contracting company is what you need.
If you think you don’t have what it takes to achieve the best results, then hiring professional Bellevue WA Painters and Christ Burton together with his team at Paint Gunners is the best thing to do.
