Drywall Finishers Near You

Sheetrock Finishing Contractors In Your Area

If you've got the drywall hung, but the seams are still visible, the next step is finishing. Drywall finishing is the process of smoothing the joints between drywall panels to get them ready for painting, texturing, tile, or wallpaper. While hanging drywall takes muscle, this next step takes finesse, so if you're not an avid and experienced DIYer, it's a job that may require a professional.

A local drywall finishing company can make the seams between panels disappear so that walls and ceilings are perfectly smooth. They are skilled at taping and mudding to create an imperceptible edge without fraying or tearing the tape or damaging the drywall. They'll start by preparing the surface, making sure all nails or screw heads are driven down below the surface of the wallboard. Then they will apply the first mud coat, a fill coat, and a finish coat that is only a light final application of mud to create a smooth surface.

While, again, this can be a DIY job, if you want flawless walls and ceilings, consider hiring a drywall finishing service near you. Professionals will have the expertise needed to achieve the right surface for different everything from flat or semi-gloss paint to heavy texturing and lightweight wallpaper. Type in your zip code and HomeAdvisor will connect you with drywall finishers in your area.


"Mr Choi found the leak in my ceiling. Since it involved drywall repair it took a couple of visits. He is knowledgable, friendly, and professional. His drywall finisher was prompt, clean, and efficient. Thumbs up!!"

"These guys showed up exactly on time each day as they said they would, and did an excellent job! I hung the drywall myself (first time doing that, so it definitely wasn't the best install job), but DC Drywall team mud, tape, and sanded it to perfection. Thank you! "

"Easy payment method. Casey is super helpful and responsive. Crew cleaned up work area each night so it was still usable space. They also did my backsplash in the kitchen. Only one minor complaint is that after putting face plates back on in kitchen my sink disposal wonâ t turn on. Found it was the wire behind faceplate came loose. Easy fix."

"These guys are exceptional. A little pricey, but that's not unusual for this area. My favorite part is the owners are AMAZING - very attentive, quickly respond to emails, very accommodating, and routinely show up to check out the job and progress (which was RARE in my past experiences with other companies). I highly recommend these guys. They did two bathrooms and even laid hard wood floor in our master bedroom for us! Hope to use them again."
