Taping and floating, day 1

Gelipe and Anthony from Celis Drywall today prepped Emerald Hill and began to tape and float the drywall.

The process of taping and floating is a common task that takes place during the installation of sheetrock. Essentially, this procedure helps to hide the rough edges of the sheetrock where the sections join, creating a smooth look to the entire wall. Just about any type of drywall finishing project will require at least some taping and floating before the job is finished. Wisegeek.
