Texturing problem - Old moulding removal


Ok I was mistaken then. So that requires some skill, you say. Is it difficult to find one who is skilled in this art? Cause I would like to have my textured walls, turned smooth.

A good drywall finisher can do it. It does take some skill. The average painter could probably pull of doing a wall or two, maybe a small room.
But to do a whole house with any kind of efficiency, its gonna take a guy that has a lot of exp. with mud.
The more skill the person has with skimming the mud, the less sanding is required. And that's important if your doing a lot of it.
I can do a wall if I have to, takes a lot of sanding though. And a couple more coats than it would take a good mud man.
Yea, get a reputable dry wall finisher. Shouldn't be that hard to find.

So do you absolutely have to put mud on when you put up new drywall? Is it a requirement? What would it look like if you simply put up the drywall, taped and bedded, and then painted? With no texture or mud of any kind.

Are you talking about tearing this out then new drywall or attempting to just cover with drywall? And why would you consider either? And no on new drywall just bed and tape. Seal the torn drywall paper with Gardz, sand, then skim coat.
