With increasing requests for blue board installation in Lowell, MA, and surrounding areas, our team realizes that this construction material is growing rapidly in popularity. And, it’s no surprise given all of the benefits this type of drywall provides to both residential and commercial customers.
One significant benefit blueboard installation provides is the ease of painting after wall construction is complete. Unlike traditional drywall, you can paint directly over blueboard. This will not only save you time and money, but it will put valuable time back into your hands.
Quicker drying times
Blueboard is designed to absorb any additional moisture from utilized materials quickly. For example, moisture is present in the plaster veneer and finishes. Because of the capability to absorb that moisture, paints can be mixed directly into the veneer. By doing so, you’re eliminating the additional steps of drying time, primer, and repeated paint applications.
Even though you can add paint directly to the veneer, we don’t recommend skipping the primer. Like any type of painting, priming the surface is a crucial first step. By doing so, you’re giving the paint a more durable surface to adhere to, reducing the chances of peeling in the future. If you’re up for the task, once it’s dried, sanding the primer will ensure the smoothest wall surface possible.
It’s important to remember that, like any surface, wall imperfections need attention before painting. If nails or joints are left exposed, you’re leaving open the possibility of them showing through your paint. Using some type of finish before painting will help ensure a flawless finish.
