Why is Drywall Sanding Needed?

Drywall sanding is important after hanging drywall to prepare for finishing in a new install and also when repairing drywall.

  • Preparing for painting. Once drywall is hung, we smooth the joints with joint compound and fill any nail and screw indentations, or nicks and scratches that are sure to happen as a result of the installation. No matter how carefully the joint compound is applied, when it dries it creates a rough gritty surface. It also shrinks as it dries, leaving hard edges and uneven spots. The joint compound must be carefully sanded so the surface is perfectly smooth and ready for painting. 
  • Patching holes. Drywall is tough, but holes do happen with day to day living: picture hook holes, accidents, house settling cracks and water or moisture damage can all leave their mark. With expert filling and sanding, nobody will know there was ever a problem.

Drywall Sanding Techniques

There are 2 basic drywall sanding techniques: dry drywall sanding and wet drywall sanding, each with their benefits and drawbacks.

Dry drywall sanding. Dry sanding is used to smooth the rough surface caused by the joint compound. This method produces the smoothest surface in the hands of an experienced drywaller, but it also creates the most dust. We use the appropriate equipment to achieve the best results while keeping dust to a minimum. We always sand between applications of joint compound for a flawless surface, free of marbling and roughness.

Finest Finest takes the utmost precautions to minimize dust. Our drywall specialists wear safety protection, seal the room, and open the windows for good ventilation. Where appropriate, we use an automatic or hand sand block equipped with a vacuum to minimize dust. At the end, we vacuum up any remaining dust.

Wet drywall sanding. Wet drywall sanding reduces dust, but the result won’t be as smooth as what the dry drywall sanding method produces. Wet sponges are used to smooth the joint compound, also called drywall mud. Wet drywall sanding is fine if you will be applying a texture to the drywall or covering it with wainscotting, tiles or wall paper, but it isn’t suitable for smooth painted walls.

What Makes Finest Finish Drywall Sanding Superior?

Our attention to detail and using the right techniques at the right time, ensures the smoothest, cleanest drywall sanding possible. This is important because it leads to an immaculate finish for your walls and ceilings. Just a few of the details that make the difference are:

  • Sanding after priming to remove paper fuzz and lumps.
  • Using a fine grit sandpaper with a light touch to avoid grooves
  • Touch up using a sanding sponge to get crisp corners.
  • Using a bright light to highlight any imperfections that need to be fixed.
  • Using dust reducing precautions and vacuum sanders. 
  • Thorough cleanup once the job is finished.
