    Drywallers

    I am looking for recommendations on a quality drywall crew. I am willing and can handle a variety of household projects - drywall simply isn't one of 'em. I can't locate the crew that did the main portion of our house.

    Feel free to list out the company name and number - or if you'd prefer - send a PM.

    Thx.

    I've done it before, I'm aware. ;)

    I can't afford to have my studio in construction mode for any longer than a week. And it would most certainly take me longer than a week to drywall about 1700 sq. ft of space.

    Anyways - drywaller recommendations...go....

    Just come to any corner on the southside and yell "Necesito drywallers experimentados, pagaré el dinero grande!"

    Ceilings aren't all that bad, until you need to start messing with can lighting or the like.

    Hint: Make sure you have a firm, controlled grip on that rotozip.

    Re: Drywallers

    We just had a company come in and mud/tape/sand our drywalling that we needed done for our showroom. We hung the sheets ourselves (48 total) and they came in and did the rest. Very good pricing too.

    Yeah it is simple, and you will forever nit pick all the places you made a mistake. Hire it out.

    I got a kick out of the "experimentados" part.
