Job Description for Dry Wall Finisher

A drywall finisher applies drywall panels to buildings. Usually, drywall is used for the interior walls of houses. Drywall panels will be hung and screwed, usually starting from the ceilings. An adhesive will also be used to help the drywall stay in place. The drywall will most likely have to be cut, so that it fits properly. The drywall finisher may have to tape the drywall joints. Then he or she will need to mix a compound that should be applied to the drywall after it has been installed, so that it looks seamless. After this, a texturizing or smoothing coat may be applied, so that it looks better. This may have to be done several times to achieve the desired results, and sanding of the wall may need to be done to get the right results.
