At first glance, it would seem that sanding out drywall mud is the easiest part of the process.
It is not.
The sanding process is dirty, long, and hard. Using power sanders can eliminate the last part of this, but it’ll just make even more mess to clean up at the end of the day. There’s a bit of an art to this process, but what you’ll need the most of is good old fashioned elbow grease and time.
As always, patience and precision will pay off at the end of the day.
Sanding sheetrock can be a lot of hard work, but if done properly it’s the final step before the aesthetic finish. Whether you’re doing a repair or replacing a wall you’ll end up having to do it at some point during the process and it’s best to do it right the first time.
With some care and loving attention, you’ll soon find yourself on the way to a professional-looking wall. Something you can truly be proud of. You’ll have to do the work first though.
