To save money on texture changes, we can put a new skip trowel texture right over the top of some other textures, and it looks great.

Ok, I don't have a before picture, but there was a section cut out about 3'x5' right around this vent. You can see that after, it looks like new. We did the drywall and paint.

Dustless sanding
Dustless sanding

I rarely have to sand my work, as I put it on smooth to start with. But on larger jobs, we may need to sand and then we try to use this Drywall sander/vacuum combo which reduces about 99% of the dust.

Bad repairs by others

I post these to show you what can go wrong if you don't hire the right person.  Research them on google, facebook, and through friend referrals 1st.

NEVER do this
NEVER do this

Ok, this looks bad, yes. And it's just started you say, and yes. But the problem is it's done with the wrong drywall mud. Using the wrong mud with Mesh Tape will result in a failure down the road. I see this mistake ALL THE TIME by handymen, painters and novices.

Inexperience

This is someone I know, who is trying to learn drywall repairs. But they tried something that didn't work, due to the lack of experience.

This was a renters attempt at repairing their own wall. A repair like this is worse than no repair at all and they still lost part of their deposit.

This is just another example of someone without the experience Required to do a quality drywall repair.

Poor ceiling repair

There's several reasons this came out so poorly, but lack of experience and a dedication to matching and blending textures is one big reason.

A subcontractor damaged their wall and said he could fix it. He did this work, and then even painted over it.

This was in an apartment we were hired to work on. My repair came out perfect, but I had to leave this old one alone. This is an example of typical handyman work.

Here, a customer with a Million dollar property, and a gorgeous home had us bid this repair. They hired someone else, then paid us to come in a fix it right, which cost them probably 3 times as much in the end. Get it done right, the 1st time.

Handyman quality often sucks
Handyman quality often sucks

Folks, it takes MANY years to get good at repairs. It took me over 20 years to get as good as I am, so a handyman or painter, can not do a quality job most of the time.
