q & a

  • Why do drywall joints sometimes show through on walls and ceilings after final decorating?

    One reason may be the addition of too much water to texturing material or paint. Over-thinned paint or texture material does not adequately hide the normal contrast between the joint and gypsum panel paper. It is recommended before texturing and painting, that a prime coat of Sheetrock® Brand First Coat or undiluted, interior flat latex paint with high solids content is applied to the wall or ceiling surface.

  • What is the shelf life of a texture product?

    The shelf life of an unopened container is up to nine months from the date of manufacture under protected storage conditions.
