"It was a pleasure hiring Mr. Estevez to remove a small partition wall separating our dining room from our living room. He did a great job with the removal, patching the hole on the adjoining wall, and painting over it. He was even gracious enough to paint the rest of the wall just to make sure everything matches. If you're looking for an all-around Handyman who is honest, affordable, and does excellent work, look no further than Mr. Estevez."

If you've got the drywall hung, but the seams are still visible, the next step is finishing. Drywall finishing is the process of smoothing the joints between drywall panels to get them ready for painting, texturing, tile, or wallpaper. While hanging drywall takes muscle, this next step takes finesse, so if you're not an avid and experienced DIYer, it's a job that may require a professional.

A local drywall finishing company can make the seams between panels disappear so that walls and ceilings are perfectly smooth. They are skilled at taping and mudding to create an imperceptible edge without fraying or tearing the tape or damaging the drywall. They'll start by preparing the surface, making sure all nails or screw heads are driven down below the surface of the wallboard. Then they will apply the first mud coat, a fill coat, and a finish coat that is only a light final application of mud to create a smooth surface.

While, again, this can be a DIY job, if you want flawless walls and ceilings, consider hiring a drywall finishing service near you. Professionals will have the expertise needed to achieve the right surface for different everything from flat or semi-gloss paint to heavy texturing and lightweight wallpaper.
