  • Residential Roofing Indianapolis

    The roof is arguably the most important part of the home; in fact, without a roof, a house can hardly be called a home. The roof provides comfort, security, and safety from the elements. So if the roof ends up with any kind of damage, it could end up compromising all of the qualities that the roof is supposed to provide. The roof is particularly susceptible to wear and tear since it is exposed to the elements, and in Indianapolis, those elements can be varied and unpredictable.


Tips For Doing a Drywall Painting Project

Planning to do drywall painting soon? It’s arguably the easiest home project you can do, but it still needs a discerning eye and an accurate hand. Read on as Universal Roofing and Exteriors discusses a few tips to remember when doing a drywall painting project in your home.

Drywall Painting

Avoid Oversanding

Sanding the drywall is actually the last step in the drywall installation process. It basically preps up the drywall for painting and while it’s relatively simple to do, it’s important that you don’t oversand the surface. Oversanding will rupture the paper face of your drywall, cause tear marks on the surface, and make painting very difficult to do.

If you’re not sure how to sand the drywall surface, have our drywall contractor do it for you. Our team has the necessary tools, and you can count on us to properly sand and prep your drywall for painting.

Always Wear a Mask

Sanding the drywall can get dusty, but you shouldn’t get rid of the mask once you’re done. Some paints are harmful to the lungs, especially industrial paint, so it’s always a good idea to wear a simple dust mask when you’re doing a drywall project.

Cover Holes, Nails, and Screws before Painting

Before you paint the surface, make sure you cover any holes, nails, or screws. Painting over these will cause bump marks to appear on the surface of the drywall, which aren’t nice to look at. You want a flush finish for your paint, after all. For holes, we suggest using putty; for nails and screws, covering with masking tape will suffice.

Hire the Professionals
