Kitchen Drywall Patch & Paint; Mt Joy, PA

This was a small drywall patch job to cover up some new plumbing after a leak in the kitchen. A small 4×5 piece of drywall was installed over the cabinets and refrigerator using 20 minute joint compound and finished off with a low dust joint compound to minimize dust. The space between the ceiling and the cabinets was 3.5″ (a tricky space to finish!). A small 3″ knife was used to get this difficult to reach area. Upon sanding, the job was painted to match the existing ceiling color. This job took about a day and a half to complete.

Here’s a new project we’re in the midst of. You can see start (drywall hanging & finishing) all the way to prime & ready for paint — we’re currently wrapping up the painting.

Some notes on how we approach a job.

  • Drywall is hung with adhesive. This keeps screw & nail pops to a minimum.
  • Drywall is used in longest lengths available for each room. This means less joints and less stress on the existing joints.
  • We use only Benjamin Moore primers and Paints. We find that they provide superior coating to all other paints. No-VOC Paints are available from Benjamin Moore for those interested.
