Skimcoating

Skimcoating sometimes can be a very last resort for some projects that go of course but sometimes skimcoating can be the only way to get a super smooth finish.

Do you have an outdated plastered texture on your ceiling and don't want to drywall over it? Or possibly a unique sandy texture on your walls that wont sand off? Then skimcoating is the way to go!

Skimcoating is not the hardest job in the world but with experienced professionals doing it day in and day out there is really no better time to call on the professionals to get it done in half the time! We start with a base compound that takes 45 minutes to dry and apply it with either a putty knife or a roller depending on what kind of texture we are dealing with. After this coat of 45 minute compound we do a light sand with 100 grit sandpaper but we are not done there!
After the first layer is sanded down we apply a very thin layer of a finishing compound with a roller and a specialized rubber trowel to leave is looking super smooth. Once this coat has dried we give it an even lighter sand with 150 grit sandpaper.
After all the messy work is done we dust off the surfaces and apply a primer to seal it up. After that comes the topcoat of the customers choice and just like that you have an updated smooth, flat surface!
