Drywall Hanging/Taping/Texturing

Drywall hanging, taping, and texturing are all part of the process of finishing the interior walls and ceilings of a building using drywall, also known as gypsum board or sheetrock.

Drywall hanging involves installing the drywall sheets onto the framing of the walls and ceiling. The sheets are typically 4 feet wide and 8-12 feet long, and are screwed or nailed onto the studs or joists of the framing. This creates a smooth surface that is ready for taping and texturing.

Taping involves applying joint compound to the seams between the drywall sheets and any screw or nail holes, and then embedding paper or mesh tape into the compound. The tape helps to reinforce the joints and create a smooth, seamless surface. After the compound dries, additional layers of compound are applied and sanded until the surface is smooth and even.

Texturing involves applying a finish to the surface of the drywall, such as a textured pattern or design. This can be done using various techniques, such as spray texturing, hand-texturing, or stenciling.

Overall, drywall hanging, taping, and texturing are all important steps in creating a finished, smooth, and visually appealing interior surface for walls and ceilings. It requires skill and experience to achieve a high-quality result.
