As a drywall texturing contractor, the amount of bids you win for projects and the quality of your work plays a significant role in how successful and profitable your business is. When bidding on projects, if you are like many contractors in the industry, you likely will gravitate towards larger commercial construction projects, as long as you have the time, equipment, and resources that is.

While commercial drywall texturing projects can be time-consuming, they tend to always have a higher payoff. In a competitive industry as such, it is crucial that drywall contractors take on profitable projects that will allow them to apply texture quickly without sacrificing craft and workmanship. But, unfortunately with commercial projects, that is easier said than done. As a drywall contractor, if you plan on taking on larger commercial jobs, it is important that you take steps to make your work as effective and efficient as possible.

Time-Saving Commercial Drywall Texturing Tips

Most commercial projects that require drywall texturing will have more than one room. Jobs texturing business offices and complexes, apartment buildings, and other large building structures are certainly going to take some time. For that reason, it is important to do whatever you can to finish the job quickly, but with quality workmanship to increase the chances of bringing in more jobs down the road. Below, check out some time-saving tips that will be helpful when texturing for commercial projects.

Break The Work Into Sections

For commercial buildings that need texturing, especially those with numerous rooms and floors, the job simply cannot be done in one-day with the expected professional results. Rather than trying to tackle the workload all at once, it can help to break the work into different sections. For example, if you are hired to perform texturing inside a four-story apartment building there may be hundreds or rooms or areas that need spraying. To make the work loader, you may consider breaking the work into sections; spraying the first and second floor one day, the third and the fourth the next, and finishing up any other areas as needed. While it may not seem like it, dividing your work load into sections can make the work easier and more efficient, plus it often comes with better results.

Properly Mix Your Drywall Material

Preparing the drywall spray material is a time-consuming process itself. No matter which type of material you are using, you must mix the material and thin it until the proper consistency is attained. Failing to do so will lead to wasted time and less-than-optimal texturing results. To properly mix your material and achieve the right consistency, you must have the proper mixing tools, frequently test the material’s consistency, and mix it frequently. In addition to properly applying the texture, properly mixing the material is just as, if not more, important for the best application results.

Use A Quality Texture Spray Machine

The tools and equipment used in drywall texturing have a significant influence on the quality of work. When it comes to saving time, one of the best pieces of equipment your drywall contracting business can invest in is a quality drywall texture sprayer. Believe it or not, there are a lot of texturing machines out there, all offering different qualities for different applications. Therefore, it is important to know how to choose the best texture spray rig for your business. Consider which materials you use most, how many gallons are used for typical applications, and the surfaces you most often spray to get a better idea of which texture spray rig is best for your needs.

For interior jobs, such as spraying inside commercial buildings, having a portable texture spray machine that is compact and easy to move around the job site is a vital component to saving time on jobs. At the same time, however, you want a spray rig that still packs some spraying power. Typically most portable texture sprayers offer one or the other, but never both.
