Here at Paint Denver, we tackle all kinds of interior renovations for our clients. Oftentimes, we come across clients who have removed some wallpaper or wainscoting, or recently relocated a door or a window, and need wall retexturing services.
If you don’t know exactly how you’re going to get that flat, unadorned piece of drywall to blend in with the texture on the rest of your home’s interior, you’ll need a retexturing treatment.
Tools You’ll Need for Wall Retexturing
If you’re considering tackling this project on your own, there are a number of tools you’ll need to get the job done.
In order to properly retexture your wall, you’ll need drywall mud – and lots of it. You’ll mix this compound up until you reach the right consistency, it should feel like cake batter. If there are any puncture marks, holes, dips, or other imperfections in the wall, you’ll want to even those out with the compound and a putty knife.
In total, you’ll need about 8 tools:
- Drywall mud
- Work cloths
- Drill and mixing attachment
- Putty knife
- Painter’s tape
- Paint roller
- Texture brush
