Can I apply paint on my Charleston drywall?

Yes. When you are done installing your drywall, you can apply two coats of paint to give it its final finish. However, directly applying paint over drywall will make it more difficult to get an even finish. Some drywall materials absorb paint and that may cost you a lot. It is advisable that before applying paint on a fresh drywall, a primer should be implemented first. A primer does not function as a paint. It is basically used to seal the drywall and mud. It adheres to the drywall a lot better than paint. Because of that, it will be able to seal porous surfaces of the drywall compound making it more receptive to paint.

Is there any difference between Sheetrock and drywall in Charleston?
