Recently we got the chance to help out a fantastic customer in Cary. Because he did such a great job in his review, we'll let him explain to you the benefits of hiring Prestigious Plaster and Drywall: We have used Prestigious Plastering and Drywall for drywall repairs at our home residence in Cary at least two other times in the past. Tim is a true professional and an expert at his craft. When we finally were able to fix a foundation problem under our house several months ago, we didn't even consider calling anyone else for the wall repair that was needed afterwards. The section of drywall he replaced had bowed out almost two inches over time. The bowed section was several feet long and on the main wall in our living room, just to the right of our fireplace. It was an eyesore that you would see as soon as you entered the room. Now it looks as good as new, maybe even better! We have two other properties (in two different cities) and we are almost always having an upgrade or repair going on at one of the three places. I can tell you from experience, that Tim is not only the best at what he does... he is one of the best service contractors we have ever used from any field. He has always been prompt in response via phone or email. He is very quick to come out and give an estimate and the quality of his work is unquestionable. The job he just completed for us was no exception. We also like that he uses top notch equipment and products. His power sanding tools have attached vacuums, which cuts down on dust and debris tremendously! My wife and I highly recommend Prestigious Plastering and Drywall and would not hesitate calling Tim again in the future! Here's some photos of during and after the repair. large hole in a living room wall, ready to be repaired Having removed the old section of bowed drywall. drywall in the middle of a repair. What Tim calls "Hanged and Taped" and ready for finishing. finished drywall, ready for paint. Finished and ready for paint! It was a pleasure helping, and we so appreciate the kind words.

Framing in a TV Nook/Niche In Raleigh
We recently had the opportunity to help a customer by framing in the TV Nook above their fireplace. The customer is on Hillsborough Street in Raleigh. With the advent of larger flat-panel TVs, the value of having a built in nook above the fireplace in many homes was basically negated. Homeowners are left with a useless hole above the fireplace too small for a TV, and to large/out of reach for any other practical use. That's where we came in! First, we framed in the area in a way that can easily hold the weight of a mounted flat panel TV: framed in tv Nook. The key is to frame in such a way as to be able to hold the weight of new heavy TVs with their mounting assembly. Next, we roughed in the sheetrock to match the surrounding area. roughed in drywall for TV nook The key here is to rough in the dryway precisely so that in the next step you can finish it without a noticeable ridge. Finally, we added the finishing touches to perfectly match the rest of the drywall: finished drywall above Fireplace. The finished product, like that glaring hole in the wall was never there! All that was left was to mount the TV, and turn on a classic Bruce Willis film! mounted tv on finished drywall with tv image of Bruce Willis. The only thing that looks better than Bruce Willis is the awesome drywall work. What are you waiting on? Contact us today to take care of that ugly 90s TV nook in your house!

Editor's note: we're taking a break from posts highlighting our work (more are on the way) and using this opportunity to educate you on some fun facts about drywall.
Did you know that your drywall is helping to protect your home or business in the event of a fire?
Drywall is often called "sheet rock," which should give you a clue about how it is madeâit's actually sheets of rock. The specific rock used in drywall is gypsum, and it's a building material that has been used in various forms for thousands of years, dating all the way back (at least) to the Egyptian pyramids.
Modern drywall is gypsum rock sandwiched between special sheets of paper.
In addition to being easier to cart around and put on walls than actual slabs of rock, gypsum drywall holds crystalline water inside of it. So if a fire starts in your house, the water in the drywall evaporates (boils) once it reaches 220 degrees Fahrenheit.
So during the time it takes to boil all of the water in the gypsum (and there can be as much as 2 quarts of water in 10 square feet of drywall), the wood behind the drywall is protected, and remains at just 220 degrees.
That extra window of time for the fire department to get there and put out the fire could mean the difference between replacing drywall, and replacing the entire structure.
So that hole in your drywall is not just ugly, it's adding a way for the flames of a fire to quickly spread to the structure of your building.
