There’s no way around it: for a gorgeous finish, you’ll need a good drywall sander. It’ll kick up dust, it’ll make a mess, and if you’re like most drywall finishers we’ve spoken to, it’ll probably be your least favorite part of the process. But once you’re done, you’ll have beautifully smooth drywall that’s ready to paint to perfection. We can’t make the sanding process super fun, but we can make it easier, faster and less tiring with a selection of abrasives that the pro drywall finishers reach for.
Speaking of pros, the guys at Refresh Home Improvements recently finished up a very cool drywall detail — an LED channel that runs along their baseboards and up a wall — that needed a sharp, precise drywall reveal gap to fit their aluminum channel. For this project, they selected two Trim-Tex drywall sanders: the Black Widow Pro Sander and our Single Angle Sanding Block. Check it out in the video below:
