Gypsum panels are commonly used for ceilings and walls. These gypsum boards are installed on the frame with nails specifically designed for this purpose. Several panels will be required to cover the surface of a wall or ceiling. These panels can be cut to accommodate the size of the area to be covered.
Once the section is covered with gypsum board it is time to spackle. Drywall tape is placed over the joints between the gypsum boards and covered with a joint compound. This will be done a few times allowing each coat to dry before each application. When the joint compound is fully dry it is ready to be sanded and painted with a primer.
Although this may sound simple, each step requires the proper experience and great attention to detail. Badly drawn seals or signs of poorly installed gypsum sheets may give the initial impression of a fair result but when applying paint each defect will be highlighted.
