The proper installation of drywall is a very important part of any renovation or repair for your condominium. Drywall that is not properly installed can cause cracks in the ceiling or along the walls, which will need repair or replacing. BlueNova Construction is an expert in the field of drywall installation, and will use all the proper materials to ensure the job is done correctly.

We will install the drywall, including all taping and sanding, ensuring the wall or ceiling is ready for paint. We are also able to install textured ceilings, either knockdown or popcorn. A knockdown textured ceiling is one that when touched, is fairly flat but has a mottled texture. The term “knockdown” is from how it is created—the contractor will apply the joint compound (which creates the ceiling) to the ceiling and allow it to form stalactites, which are “knocked down,” leaving the finish behind.

Popcorn ceiling was fairly popular in the 1950s to the 1980s, and still enjoys a following today because of its bright, white appearance and noise reduction abilities. It is essentially a spray-on or paint-on treatment that can be used in rooms or hallways.

Popcorn ceilings should always be removed by professionals like BlueNova Construction, as earlier variations of the texturing material may contain asbestos.
