Ceiling and Wall Texture
We are in the final stages of our large home addition (yay!) and we have to decide on wall and ceiling texture. We were all set on having smooth walls and ceilings, but I did more research and found out a few things that might complicate things:
1. Our GC says that that it's a level 4 smooth. From other posts, it looks like level 5 is the pinacle of smoothness? Does level 4 just mean drywall seams are mudded 3 times and then the skim coat? Sorry if my terms are incorrect? Is there anything to look out for when they do this? I've already seen a couple of houses that he has done and the smooth walls look pretty good.
2. I heard that one potential problem with smooth ceilings is that the drywall could sag over time and show the seams. This something to worry about? My GC said he doesn't think so especially since the joists were the drywall is screwed into is manufactured so they are pretty stable (except in case of water damage of course)
