Level 4 Interior Finishes
(The most common finish)
Drywall (also called “gypsum board” or “plasterboard”) is a surface commonly encountered in interior painting.
The level (quality) of finish required by you, will have a substantial effect on the painting work to follow, including which paint systems are appropriate to use. Note that a level 3 finish is the minimum required to achieve what may be considered a paint-able surface.
What is Level 4 Finishing?
- All joints and interior angles shall have tape embedded in joint compound and shall be immediately wiped with a joint knife or trowel leaving a thin coating of joint compound over all joints and interior angles.
- Two separate coats of joint compound shall be applied over all flat joints.
- One separate coat of joint compound shall be applied over interior angles.
- Fastener heads and accessories shall be covered with three separate coats of joint compound.
- All joint compounds shall be smooth and free of tool marks and ridges
- The prepared surface shall be covered with a drywall primer prior to the application of the final decoration.

Level 5 Finishes
- To achieve a level 5 finish on plasterboard and fibre-cement, a thin skim coat is applied to the entire surface of the sheets.
- For fibrous plaster linings, the final compound application is trowel polished.
- Suitable for use where gloss, semi-gloss, low sheen or non-textured flat paints are being applied or where critical light conditions exist.
