The Meaning of Level 5

Our name: Level 5 is the highest level of finish done within the sheetrock profession. Technically it means that after all of the joints have had 3 coats of compound, the entire surface of the drywall is then coated with compound to provide the smoothest surface available for painting. While we literally offer “level 5” finishing as a drywall service, we chose “Level 5” as our name because it reflects our desire to finish our work to the highest level possible.
