Drywall taping, or what’s also known as mudding, is an important part of the overall process when installing new drywall. Taping basically describes the process whereby a special tape, often fibreglass, is used to cover up the gaps between the various hanging drywall sheets that have been installed. This work is done in order to create a smooth and even finish, so the next stage of the process can be completed, but it can have other benefits also. We are the professional drywall taping contractors that provide the best results when doing taping or related finishing work.
Smooth and Seamless Finish
Taping, and finishing in general, is done with the aim of creating a smooth and seamless finish. As it covers all the gaps between various boards, making them virtually invisible, it leaves you with one smooth and even surface. This is a great way to improve overall aesthetic quality and ensure that your new drywall is ready to have further work done on it. In short, it’s really the only way to make sure that your new drywall has the aesthetic quality that you are looking for. Beyond this, taping the boards can also be a way to improve structural integrity as well.
Beyond providing your new drywall with a better aesthetic quality, taping, as part of the overall finishing process, can also be a great way to give your new drywall better structural support, and prevent certain kinds of damage from occurring. Taping can increase the bond between the various drywall sheets that have been installed. This helps to prevent any movement. This is beneficial because movement between the boards can actually result in damage such cracking. So, taping can prevent damage and save you money.
Ready for The Next Step
There’s a number of steps that are required if you want to get the best end product. This includes having taping and finishing done.

So, once your new drywall has been taped it’s then ready to be textured or painted. This way, you get the best result and end up with something that has the right level of aesthetic appeal.
