Hanging and finishing drywall is quite possibly the one job that do-it-yourselfers dislike the most. It’s messy, it’s tedious and even small imperfections appear glaring when the walls and ceilings are painted. Working with Drywall gives a fresh perspective on this maligned but essential task. It goes beyond the basics of installing drywall to reveal all the secrets any homeowners needs to know to transform “rocking and mudding” from a chore into a true pleasure. The companion DVD takes you further still by showing taping and finishing techniques in real time so you can see exactly how the process looks when it is done right.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Drywall is tricky stuff, and mistakes can haunt you forever. Aimed at the confident do-it-yourselfer, this book is accompanied by lots of detailed illustrations. A distinctive section features wall textures and effects, and the shortest chapter, on repairs, may be the most useful. The DVD covers finishing. A more professional instructional book on drywall is Myron R. Ferguson's Drywall: Professional Techniques for Great Results, but this is a good place to start.
