Drywall Problem Prevention and Remedies: Finishing Problems Mobile App

Unsatisfactory drywall results show up first in the areas over joints or fastener heads. Improper application of either the board or joint treatment may be at fault, but other conditions existing on the job can be equally responsible for reducing the quality of the finished gypsum board surface. To help determine the cause of Finishing problems, the Drywall Problem Prevention and Remedies: Finishing Problems mobile app provides a checklist that identifies possible causes for the irregularity as well as remedies and preventions. GoCanvas has the ability to capture photo images using your mobile device.
