REPAIR THE WALLS & CEILINGS THE RIGHT WAY BEFORE YOU PAINT!! Perhaps you've known the frustration of going to all the effort and cost of painting a room in your home, only to look around a year later and all the same cracks are back on the ceiling! (This is especially painful if you hired someone to paint!) One skillset we have here at The Master's Finish is expertise in both Drywall Repair & Painting. Many painters lack the knowledge of really being able to handle settlement crack repairs or patchwork. They kind of "tinker" around and glob mud all over the place. If you're going to put a lot of time and possibly money into this painting project, shouldn't you do it right? We've been right here in Mount Airy MD for 25 years, helping our customers with most all their drywall and painting projects. We strive to do things right the first time.

We are affordable, professional, and the company you can trust. We've recently done a lot of drywall repair and painting work in Monrovia, Clarksburg, Westminster, Mount Airy, New Market, Columbia, and Linganore. There's a reason we are called the Wall Doctors!

Drywall Repair tip: Double-check your outside spigots before this weekend. We've all probably been hearing about the major cold front moving our way. We've had a relatively easy winter so far, but it wouldn't hurt to take a few minutes to make sure the outside spigots are covered for the winter, and the inside valves are turned off. A little prevention goes a long way!
If an accident occurs and you need help getting your drywall repaired, please give us a call. We've been expertly helping our customers with drywall services for over 35 years, and in business for 25 years right in this central Maryland area. If you're within 30 - 40 minutes of Mount Airy then you're within reach. Come see the difference the caring professionals at The Master's Finish Inc can make in your home!

Water Damage Restoration: One of the main things we do in the winter here at The Master's Finish is drywall repair for walls and ceilings that get damaged by water, many times from frozen pipes. And the sad reality is that many of these pipes never would have frozen and done damage if just a little more care & attention had been paid by those working around the pipes. Sometimes it's the insulator who didn't fasten the insulation well enough to the framing, and then a major arctic blast comes through and knocks this whole piece down off the attic ceiling. This then creates somewhat of a wind tunnel effect and amplifies the cold effect right onto the pipes. And then there are the other tradespeople that come in after a perfect insulating job, and they push the insulation out of the way to re-work their plumbing or electrical or HVAC issue - and forget to put the insulation back in place! The drywall is installed, and no one ever knows there's a problem until it's too late. A little caring goes a long way. This is also true when putting things back together after the flooding. New insulating work needs to be extra thorough now because a vulnerable area has surfaced. If there was a little piece of R-13, let's double the pieces if there is room. If there are some gaps and cracks to the exterior, let's use some spray foam to seal everything up extra well. Let's treat my customer's house like I would treat my own. We've been making homes beautiful after water damage for over three decades, with amazing results! If you happen to be in need of water damage restoration, and want a company that cares about you and your home; and doing this right, please give us a call - 410-440-6360.

Settlement Crack Drywall Repair Mount Airy Md: Serious Problem?
Do the settlement cracks on your ceiling or walls mean you have a more serious problem than a cosmetic drywall issue? My experience says that generally ceiling settlement cracks are from sheetrock coming a little loose from the framing at the point of the seams. Just a 1/8 inch loosening can cause the cracking to appear in the seam. The earthquakes we experienced half a dozen years ago could have moved things enough to bring on cracking. Many times the culprit can be framing lumber not completely dried in the original framing process, so that once it dries it takes the drywall screws with it and causes a slight separation between the drywall and framing. There are also times when the drywall wasn't quite thoroughly fastened from the very beginning. All of the seams get quickly taped and mudded, and things can look fine for a year or two, then a little stress hits the home (like a wind-shear or minor ground tremor), enough to shake the house a little, and those weak points are revealed. We've had great success fixing all these issues, even on textured ceilings. Call today for help: 410-440-6360 or email [email protected]

Custom Painting: To Tape or Not to Tape? We all know the frustration of trying to paint a crisp line where the wall color meets the ceiling or base trim, but our brush is too wide or fat to help us. In this case I would encourage using blue painter's tape in the ceiling or trim so that you can achieve a good line. If you have a brush with a fine tip you can oftentimes lightly set the tip right up in the crease of the ceiling & wall corner and create the nice color line. If you choose to go the tape route, be careful setting the tape. The corner angle where walls and ceilings meet tend to have a lot of fluctuation to them. You also need to watch out for paint bleeding behind the tape. Overall, I think taping is a good idea, but it also has limitations and takes some good practice to achieve a good result. If you live in the Mt Airy or Eldersburg areas and are looking for help with custom painting, just give us a call. We've been in the business of doing beautiful custom painting work in the area for almost 25 years. (410-440-6360)

Drywall Patching: Hint for Ceiling Drywall Patching - It seems that many ceiling patches from water damage occur near the outside walls of a house. One thing often overlooked is the insulation when you're replacing the sheetrock. Once you have your ceiling opened, take a minute to look at each bay of insulation. If you have the time, go grab a twenty-five dollar roll of insulation and add extra up against that exterior wall - this would be a great investment and possibly insurance against frozen pipes near those walls.
Today's drywall repair work was in New Market MD. We replaced an area of a dining room ceiling sheetrock @ 6 ft x 6 ft. If you are in the Frederick or Mt Airy area and need some patchwork or settlement cracks repaired just give us a call. We're in the business of making walls and ceilings beautiful again!

Drywall Patching: Making Your Drywall Trowel Work Right
December 15, 2023|Drywall Repair

If you've ever tackled a drywall project, you know it all starts with those drywall TROWELS. But it's terribly frustrating to buy that nice shiny trowel at the store and try to spread the joint compound with it. It is so "scrapy" and hard, and the compound all wants to slide right off of it. And then you watch a video on drywall and those guys just smooth the compound and hold it on their trowel like it's magnetic! What's the difference? A simple help here is to use some sandpaper and work off the edges of your trowel. Try to get the very corners a little rounded. Then sand the "shinyness" on the flat metal parts. Scuff it up really good. All of this will help to hold the compound.
If we can help you with any of your Drywall and Painting work in the Mt. Airy, MD area, just give us a call or email. We specialize in drywall patches and settlement crack repairs. You can reach John at 410-440-6360.

Accent Walls Make a Huge Impact !!!
When it comes time to paint the Living Room, Kitchen, or Master Bedroom, consider transforming the room with an Accent Wall. In this Mount Airy Md living room we incorporated the same Navy Blue color that was painted on the front door and shutters. The results added a true touch of elegance and class to the whole first floor. With all the beautiful white trim around the fireplace, the deep accent wall contrasts really popped!

Paint Quality - Don't be fooled!!! I recently painted a Great Room for some wonderful customers in the Ellicott City and Clarksville Md areas. They shopped for just the right wall paint. An expensive paint store sold them on a particular paint, promising that this was just as good as the paint I had recommended, which happened to be a Behr product. But the paint they sold to my customers was very inferior. I would compare it the paints we use from Sherwin for about $ 23 a gallon. The problem was that they paint cost my customers more than $ 50 a gallon! Maybe the take-home message here is that sometimes the painters who use the paints have a fair amount of practical knowledge of paint quality. We're glad to help with you with your home painting needs, as well as recommending the right paint for your individual project. We're here to help! Give us a call or message. From Eldersburg to Ellicott City, and from Frederick to Mount Airy to Clarksville, we've got a large family of happy customers!

High Ceiling Settlement Cracks can be repaired to look as good as new! We recently helped two different customers in Clarksville Md repair some major cracking on their cathedral high ceilings. One of the keys is to take the time to refasten the seams at each available contact point with the framing. The second key is to use a strong tape, preferably a vinyl strengthened drywall tape. We aim for a long-lasting fix, so we try to do this all right the first time.
We've got about 35 years worth of fixing settlement crack experience; so if you would like some help with any of your home's drywall or painting needs just send us a note or give us a call. We're here to help!
