Skim Coating 101
You may think that your ugly textured wall needs to be removed and replaced in order to get a new surface. Many people also dread the thought of a huge demo and sanding project in order to achieve what will ultimately be subpar results.
Luckily with our deep knowledge and experience with traditional plaster we have been able to develop a method of skim coating that avoids both of these messy and costly scenarios. When we skim coat a textured wall or ceiling we use the products and tools that create a new, smooth, and seamless surface. This will update the look of your home at a fraction of the cost of other drywall methods.
With our skim coating technique you:
- Save time
- Save money
- Reduce mess
- Get solid results
Our customers are consistently amazed at the solid results we produce with skim coating. In most cases when other companies recommend demo of walls, ceilings, and even fireplaces there is actually no need! With a skim coat plaster application you get new life brought to the surfaces previously thought to be beyond repair.
These pictures show a fireplace that didn’t match what the homeowner desired for the look of their home. By skim coating the brick surface we were able to cut costs dramatically and preserve the centerpiece of the home with slick modern style.
Skim coating can resurface:
- Textured Walls
- Textured Ceilings
- Bad tape jobs
- Wavy surfaces
