I myself know general contractors that can bring in good trusted men to do the following: drywall board, texture ceilings and insulate. Me I again do 1 of these 4 trades - Mud and Tape and sand drywall.
As mentioned In the main section of my profile I specialize in Basements. I have 10 YouTube videos of the 26 basements I have done just in 2015 alone.
I stay busy in the drywall sector from to avenues. Home Owners + Home Builders. I spent the first 15 - 22 years of my life working for drywall companies. Soon as I jumped over to the private sector I never looked back. Its more personal and that's what I like.
60 % of the calls I get are related to garages. More and more people are not enjoying the look and drywall unfinshed in their homes, again I will look at giving a quote for your garage but try my upmost to stay in basements " full sized ".
If you tear down sections of your home and struggle to come up with a game plan as how best to put it all back together call me, I 'll see what I can do.
I only work on commercial projects If the place has adequate heat and all other trades are out of the way. Otherwise I stay in the residential sector.
Big difference between a handyman and a tradesman. Both are qualified on different levels , so beware of those that say a lot and do very little.
I have spent the last 25 years taping drywall in Canadians homes and bringing joy into their lives while providing excellence and satisfaction.

and most of all the finished product
I have left Hundreds of customers satisfied and a few are return customers.
The drywall industry is a bit of a circus when compared to other parts of construction
Take for example " Welding " we all know better than to try and weld something ourselves and 9 times out of 10 ....10 out of 10 even we will call in a Pro for matters such as Welding. Drywall on the other hand / So many people try thinking hey it must be like spreading butter on a sandwich I'll be fine and after they buy a bunch of low grade materials from a hardware store realise Ooops ! This was a mistake, I should have called in a Pro.
Folks I have seen everything there is to know about Drywall Mud and tape.
I have drywall the following projects over my 25 year span
Custom homes / garages and basements
pubs and clubs
cafe's and restaurants
at 19 I spent 9 months doing million dollar homes on whistler mountain
schools and colleges
you name it, if it has drywall in it, Ive taped and sanded it.
I explain to people theres a difference between a drywall taper and a drywall boarder
a boarder hangs the drywall sheets or drywall boards and a taper muds and tapes it all a minimum of 3 times / sanding it getting it all ready walls and ceilings for paint.
The same way we go to 1 mechanic for an oil change and another for a windshield same goes for drywall. I strictly specialize in drywall taping.
Please note !
There's a big difference between a handyman and a tradesman.
A handyman may be used to applying mud and tape and a patch or repairing a wall at best - Where as a real qualified tradesman can provide years of skill top of the line equipment and get large scale jobs done in a timely fashion.
I get the most pleasure out of working on full sized basements or Homes.
I sometimes, very rarely though take on patch work or do what I call (1) room projects. Jobs of this nature have too much time involved and I prefer taking on jobs as I say that are full basements developments or more.
I apply 3 coats, you don't get any 2 coat special from me.
I was trained from my uncle John back in 1989 when I was 16 years of age.
I turn 42 in January of 2016. That's 26 years non stop in 1 trade.
You've heard the term jack of all trade master of none, well I'm a master of 1 trade and no nothing about any other trade, I have dedicated my life to mastering the art of drywall finishing.
I look forward to hearing from you and discussing your Drywall needs.
