We use dustless machines to remove texture from celings so the dust produced from process is very little
The average house is about 1400 sq. feet it takes about 4 days each additional 250 sq ft. adds a day. This does not include a house with trey ceilings, high ceilings, or furniture.
After removing texture we apply four coats of mud on all areas then sand to complete process, so your ceilings we guarantee will be smooth.
When applying texture to ceilings drywall professionals never paint ceilings, but once texture is removed they are refereed to as "slick finished" and need to be painted.
No. Most jobs are different when you consider ceiling height, treys, furniture, crown mold it would be hard to come up with a price per sq. FT. Price quotes or estimates prior to work are free and available by appointment.
No.Once we complete our process your ceilings will be ready to paint.
No. It is the same price all things being equal. The only additional charge that you may incur is if your ceilings have been painted. If your ceilings have been painted it is more difficult to remove texture. Other additional charges high ceilings (over 10’), treys and furniture.
Yes. We use the same process for textured or damaged walls. It is less costly than applying 1/4'' Sheetrock.
Yes. We are a full service drywall company providing and maintaining a very high standard of quality and workmanship.
Professionals differ in their opinion on this question, I will give you mind. First thing is the price, once you purchase ¼” sheetrock for the average size house which has about 200 12’ pieces of sheetrock your ceilings will have 1/3 of that 200 12’ pieces. Most residential homes ceiling area is usually 1/3 of the homes total board count. Once you have purchased 70 pieces of 1/4” sheetrock 15 buckets of mud, tape, nails and screws your cost will be about $1,400. You still need to get board hung, finished and sanded. Most hangers or drywall companies charge extra for hanging because it is very hard to find studs. Hangers also have to pre-cut sheetrock instead of using a rotor. It will be very hard to purchase, install 1/4” sheetrock in this home finish and sand for under $3,000 dollars. That is much more than we charge for our process. The next thing to consider is when you have a texture on ceiling sheetrock cannot be hung without a void area between existing sheetrock and new sheetrock being hung. The texture will not allow you to hang sheetrock tight to each other. That space between sheetrock compromises the hanging process. When hanging sheetrock you always want to make sure it is secured tightly to whatever you are applying it to. When sheetrock is not secured it moves causing nail pops, and tape cracking. Another, advantage you will incur when hanging ¼” when you have existing crown mold once you hang ¼” sheetrock your profile disappears and crown mold looks like it is behind ceiling verses underneath the ceiling.
I have over 30 years experience in residential and commercial drywall. In that length of time I worked for only two large drywall companies. The last drywall company that I worked for (NSR) or Tiger drywall was responsible for the Atlanta Airport expansion, at the time it was the largest construction job in the United States. I was employed as their drywall foreman. I was responsible for a lot of large jobs for Tiger Drywall. I left Tiger Drywall and started my own company. I learned a lot about drywall and management while working for two large drywall companies which have helped me greatly. I also met a lot of good workers that help me provide a high level of professional service and workmanship here at Fast Drywall Repair.
