I put 3 coats of joint compound on the new drywall.
After the first coat, I came back the following two days to put a second and third coat and to texture the ceiling.
The 2nd and 3rd visits are pretty short - around 30 min. depending on how big the area is.
Or, you have a flood in your basement?
Don't you just hate it when a contractor cuts a hole in your wall or ceiling and leaves a gaping hole??
