Drywall hanging and finishing are tough jobs. Tradesmen come and go, so the builder has to apply his own standards to both the installation and the finishing, and make sure it gets done that way. It can be difficult with the low level of lighting available on a construction site at the drywall stage to see every surface that may need additional sanding or another coat of mud, so we use a spot light to review the wall finish before releasing it for paint. The number and type of fasteners used are also important to help prevent seams from opening up in the future.

Painting is a trade in which the costs can vary markedly depending on the level of craftsmanship desired. A top notch job involves more sanding than you might think in order to prepare surfaces in a manner that yields a superior outcome. A really great paint job, or a poor one, has a huge effect on how clients feel about the quality of their home. Poor quality paints can mean extra coats to achieve good coverage, which does not save money. Good painters are picky, picky, picky about their work.
