Fixing DIY Drywall
Did some work for a women who had some cracks in her walls and was tired of looking at them. The worst areas were in the ceiling. Once I got up on the ladder and began the worked I quickly learned what the problem was. There was no sheetrock in the corners on the ceiling. The person that had done the work put the joint compound tape on nothing--air. Fixing this issue is somewhat time consuming. The holes first had to be filled with Durabound, and then the seams had to be retaped. Not all of the cracks, and there were a lot of them were so severe that they required mud. The less severe one's were opened up a bit with a utility knife and then filled with Crack Shot. Once everything was cleaned up and repaired two coats of Benjamin Moore Regal Select Gossamer Blue, and one coat of Benjamin Moore Waterborne ceiling paint.
