Here are a few pictures showing what imperfect smooth and skip trowel textures look like. Imperfect smooth can be done with less or more imperfections. Depending on your taste, we can have the drywall company add as many or little imperfections as you like. The pictures below show some common imperfect smooth textures. Skip trowel is another common texture found in older homes. Drywall skip trowel is a bit more pronounced and a little sandy compared to the older lath and plaster skip trowel, but it is a similar look that some cutomers like. Should you not want any texture, we can always do a perfect smooth texture as well.
