Re: Are these normal blemishes after drywall finishing?


This is why I EXPLAIN to my clients and follow the practice my self- START OFF SMALL. See the work quality before larger projects- break it into smaller pieces with written payment commitments- Estimate to invoice. I dont care what trade or how long the person has been in business 1 day or 100 years- keep it small- keep it simple and then expand. * regardless if it was a referral mudderr or an Angies List mudder.

Should have done one room or maybe one wall.

Do you live in FLorida. I can add them to the FL CONTRACTOR hall of shame list- its growing bigger and bigger in 2019.

Dont pay dime.

Cost money to put a contractors lein on the house. Burden of proof is always on the plantiff. Keep your money in your pocket.

TIP#2 I NEVER ever ask for a deposit- Dont care how big the project. I can float my own finances. I would stay clear of any contractor asking for money up front (licensed and or unlicensed)


I cant stress enough- small projects, build trust, takes years to build loyalty.

* I dont advertise at all, nothing on social media, all word of mouth- more clients than I can handle. But it took me years and years to develop.

Re: Are these normal blemishes after drywall finishing?


Whoa, the painter has been one day on the job and you're suggesting he be put on an internet contractors hall of shame list, over an internet post? Where is the burden of proof there? How are you going to feel when someone on the internet with second hand knowledge starts suggesting "don't pay a dime" when you have a bunch of time and materials invested, 'cause you just do business that way, and volunteers a hall of shame list? Might be time to file a lawsuit, yeah?

A sure fire way for things to quickly go south and get ugly, talk of not paying a dime and a lien. Reasonable people are reasonable.

OP, sorry, I can't make out enough from the pictures for a determination.

I'm out.

Re: Are these normal blemishes after drywall finishing?


I almost always use a 1/2" roller cover on drywall. IMO any roller stipple difference between it and using a 3/8" cover is minimal .... and a 1/2" holds more paint making the job go faster. The roller stipple shown in the pics looks normal to me.


I really couldn't tell enough from the pics to comment. Unless it's something you can feel another coat of paint is normally the fix.


I'm not familiar with SWP's MasterHide.

On a side note, would you consider 5 butt joints in the wall and 5 in the ceiling on a 1000 square foot floor plan (approx 3600 ft of rock) a lot of butt joints? That comment did throw me for a loop because I made every effort to minimize them using the longest boards possible.
The # of butt joints does not seem excessive at all. It sounds like you planned well.

Thank you for that info. It's a 28 ft long room with 9-foot ceilings so I only had 12 foot boards that I could use with a 54-inch with sheetrock. Unfortunately there's no way to avoid butt joints. As far as the painter goes, it ended up working out very well. He put a second coat of the master hide on the bathroom for me and then I hired him to topcoat the ceilings. He use Sherwin-Williams eminence paint. Everything came out great. So I told him that I would hire him again to do the upstairs ceilings which I intend on doing. Just took a little time to build up SunTrust. Having had problems with the finisher and previous contractors I always get nervous when I deal with new people. But looking forward to getting this project moving to the next stage
