PROFESSIONAL DRYWALL MUDDING IN HOUSTON
As a leading contractor for drywall mudding in Houston, Drywall Guru has helped to improve the appearance of many homes and businesses by creating flawless walls and ceilings that stand the test of time. Drywall mudding sounds messy – and it can be, in the wrong hands. That’s why even enthusiastic DIYers shy away from handling drywall compound.
Mudding strengthens and smooths drywall and drywall joints. It’s done in conjunction with drywall taping over joints in the drywall installation process. Multiple coats of drywall compound are also applied to corners and screw indentations in newly hung drywall.
Mudding drywall is also a technique that’s used to repair holes and cracks in existing drywall surfaces. For the best results, mudding is followed by drywall sanding before drywall finishing. Drywall mudding and related services by our residential and commercial drywall installation and drywall repair contractors produces perfectly flat, smooth surfaces with a seamless appearance.
WHY HIRE A PROFESSIONAL DRYWALL MUDDING CONTRACTOR?
Drywall mudding can be one of the more challenging aspects of drywall installation, and it’s where amateurs tend to encounter most problems, through incorrect techniques and use of inferior materials.
For instance, one common mistake in DIY drywall mudding attempts is applying the layers of compound too thickly or too quickly, which can result in cracking. Another problem is using too little compound, resulting in joints that are not properly filled.
Professionals like Drywall Guru make mudding drywall look easy but it’s a skill developed through training and practice. We apply drywall joint compound in a series of thin coats, ensuring each layer is completely dry before sanding it if necessary and then adding the next coat.
As well as having mastered drywall mudding techniques, our Houston drywall mudding contractors also know the best type of joint compound to select for a particular job – often difficult for amateurs when faced with many different kinds in DIY stores.
TYPES OF DRYWALL MUD
Drywall mud comes in premixed or powdered form. Premixed joint compound is ready to apply, while powdered mud needs mixing with water. Premixed mud is available as:
- All-purpose compound.
- Topping mud.
- Lightweight varieties.
Powdered drywall mud – aka hot mud and setting mud – contains chemicals that react with water to speed up hardening – or curing – time. Drywall professionals use hot mud to shorten the waiting time between coats and to make stronger joints, but the challenging time-sensitive aspect of working with fast-setting drywall compound can be intimidating for amateurs.
