  • 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.


Drywall Finishing: What to Expect From a Specialist

One of the advantages of drywall is its smooth, crack-free surface. However, without a flawless installation by an experienced specialist, the beauty of your drywall will suffer. If your contractor hasn’t mastered the art of “taping and mudding,” the odds of committing mistakes is high. Minor cosmetic imperfections can make a significant negative impact on the finished product.

Drywall Finishing

As the local authority in drywall repair, finishing and texturing, Universal Roofing and Exteriors guarantees a flawless finish. Here’s the secret to our impeccable work:

Preparing the Surface With Attention to Detail

We don’t start the process until we’re satisfied the drywall lends itself to taping and mudding. This means we make sure all fasteners are properly recessed just below the surface of the panel. We cut any torn paper off to ensure there is no obstruction.

As a professional drywall contractor, we know this part is easier said than done. Working with sharp tools without caution can bruise the drywall’s surface accidentally, making the entire finishing job more challenging.

Choosing the Apt Tape and Mud

We know which formulations of mud are suitable for certain applications. Do-it-yourselfers can’t tell high-quality and inferior joint compounds apart; they often make the error of using all-purpose mud for everything. In our case, we use our wealth of experience to determine the best taping and topping compounds to use based on the project’s needs.

Applying Layers of Compound With Finesse

We handle drywall painting and finishing every day. This means we have the means and the knowledge to bed the tape and feather out the mud with efficiency. DIYers usually waste a lot of compound and take days to complete the job, with the end result far from perfect.

Sanding and Feathering With Patience

Our high-level sanding proficiency allows us to erase any trace of the seams to the naked eye. Amateurs find this part extremely tricky as they usually remove the mud and tear the tape by over-sanding. Restarting the process may be necessary because of the botched work. We won’t make this mistake; slow and steady wins the race, as they say.
