Repair and replacement of existing drywall, as well as installation of new drywall, requires skill and attention to detail. The drywall needs to be carefully nailed, and taped with “mud” applied. Mud is the joint compound that seals the joints between pieces of drywall, and allows the surface to be primed and painted evenly. If pieces of existing drywall are replaced, the new surfaces will need to conform to existing texture and color. Experienced drywall installers makes conforming more likely to be successful.
