I guess I have to get over the mad at the condition the last guy left it in before I have anyone else look at it (or attempt it myself). I sure wish I could borrow your guy for a couple hours. lol

He could fix it. I found this guy by asking around at all the hardware stores in town and word of mouth from satisfied customers. His name kept coming up over and over again. 4th day down (he worked sat) and today was 5th day. Man he has matched textured ceilings perfectly where tape was pulling loose at the top of the drywall where the tape met the texture. He has these walls so slick they don't even look like they need paint and he hasn't even sanded or primered and painted yet. Love this guy! They are out there and if they have been doing this stuff for years, they can match texture and everything. Just ask around town and you will hear who is the best drywall guy in town.

I'm glad your stort has a happy ending. I always tell my customers that drywall is not a good DIY project.

Thank you Mr. Paint, you are spot on, I didn't know before you can have guys come in and do this. He probably bid this job too cheap, but he has it looking so good, I have hired him to lay laminate and a ton of other stuff, cause I figure anybody who takes the time to do a good job on these walls like he has done deserves the rest of the job. So, he'll do well in the end, he got his foot in the door.

I promised I would post what I have learned to help everyone else out 'cause I love all of you guys out there. When he has a place that tries to crack back he uses what he calls dura-bond. It's kind of a gray mixture and he guarantees when he puts it on it will not crack back. It comes in a paper bag and is also sheetrock brand, it says on the bag (they left it here) sheetrock brand - setting type joint compound. They mix it with a little water. Hope that helps, love all you guys. Thank everyone so much who took the time to post out of your busy day and help me here, hope I can return the favor.

We sometimes call that hot mud or setting mud- comes in a powder and hardens chemically in a specified time (5,20,45,90 min)
Can't live without it!

I just want to say, when someone does a really good job, they deserve fair pay, and this guy has done a great job. I know he bid it too cheap for all the work he has one, but I did'nt know it would take that much work either, so let's just say he is getting one h--- of a tip!
