A good drywall finisher can come from anywhere, and look like anyone.
And the many women we've spoken to for Trim-Tex's ongoing "Women in Drywall" series are here to prove it.
Welcoming more women into the trades will help countless young people pursue their passions and find lucrative careers as craftspeople — as well as help solve the construction industry's shortage of skilled workers.
At Trim-Tex, we want to prove to a new generation of women that the trades (in particular, the art of drywall finishing) could be a viable, fulfilling path forward for them. We're shining a light on the women taping, mudding and sanding their way through a changing industry; browse through their remarkable stories below.
