Level 5, Smooth wall, Textures

 A level 5 drywall finish includes a thin "skim coat" over entire surface of gypsum board that conceals any imperfections and leaves surface looking completly uniform.

This is essential where large windows, long hallways, skylights and even surface-mounted light fixtures create harshly-lit areas.

Added Dimensions produce flawless Level 5 drywall for such harshly lit areas and for higher-sheer paint finishes.

With many types of texture finishes, Added Dimensions take pride in being able to match and produce any and all varieties.

A cheaper alternative to a level 5 finish, a texture finish can be  a decorative and unique touch that successfully seals and masks gypsum board and seams, as well and maintains the vintages look of older buildings.

Being recyclable steel is a more environmentally friendly resource than wood framing.

Steel frames are also immune to rotting, burning and termites while being able to more successfully with stand earthquakes.

  • “I have worked in commercial and residential construction, both new and remodel, in the San Francisco Bay Area for many years. I have worked with Added Dimensions for at least 8 of those years, and will continue to call on them for the professionalism, competence, and responsiveness that they offer. The owners, Paul Wayne and Keith Platte, are experienced and dedicated, understand the need for accuracy and dependability, and are very “hands-on” in the day to day work of their company. The field supervisors are seasoned problem solvers, and are able to access resources needed to do whatever is necessary. The office staff provide accurate and timely invoicing and communicate very well. This is a great company to work with, I recommend them highly.”
