At 16 years of age Alvin began working for a master drywaller and learned the trade from the “old school” perspective. In a repair, he learned that you do not cut corners, you complete each step in the process before moving onto the next, you apply the appropriate or matching texture (hint: it does NOT come out of a spray can), and you finish to a “level five” which means no one looking at the finished job would ever know a repair had been made! Many contractors today will mix an adhesive, a primer like Kilz, and texture, and then spray the ‘cocktail’ onto the wall or ceiling. This produces something that may look acceptable to the untrained eye, at least initially, but common household traffic over time will cause this mixture to crumble and fail, creating an even bigger mess than the repair was supposed to fix! Alvin’s drywall work includes:

  • Acoustic ceiling removal including asbestos testing
  • Install of new drywall including tape, mud, sanding, texture, and painting
  • Repair of existing drywall including water damaged, mold remediation, and install of new patch, taped, mudded, sanded, textured, and painted
