Drywall & Wall Repair

Our approach to drywall finishing is less harmful to occupant health and well-being than traditional drywall applications. Our team of contractors are skilled professionals with years of experience installing drywall, repairing and finishing interior wall surfaces. We reduce airborne pollutants by employing dustless finishing techniques such as sealing off work areas from debris, using a vacuum while sanding and maintaining adequate ventilation where possible. We also use a green alternative to traditional compounds and spackling. Our preferred drywall to install is the USG Sheetrock Brand Eco Smart Panels.

We advise all clients to acquire a building inspection prior to major drywall installation projects to verify that the necessary mechanical work done meets local building codes. We also are willing to install conventional drywall panels if the client insists due to budget cost. We are still able to provide dustless sanding and alternative non toxic compounds with either option.
