Skim coating is the process of applying a layer of muddy plaster compound to rough or damaged ceilings and walls to either smooth or repair them.
We use this method to repair entire walls; to smooth out cross-hatching on dry wall paper, fill deep scratches or holes; or to replace water-damaged portions of drywall .
The skim coating process generally takes at least two layers of compound. After all the coats are dry and smooth, the wall or ceiling has to be sanded before it can be painted or wallpapered. This process can also be used to give concrete a smooth surface.
Our sanding is virtually dustless!
