Class 5 Finish


For me it seems easier to do good mudding job without skimming than skim and sand the skim. Just tired of skim imperfections.

Class 5 ? Are u talking about level 5 if so it is necessary to skim that is what a level 5 is. Don't matter if you are the best taper & finish guy out there unless u skim you will not achieve a level 5. How long have you been taping???? You should know that by now. I yie yie

Re: Class 5 Finish


Well then if you are doing a lot of touch up then the taping isn't done very well. Are u a contractor or just someone working for someone. The reason I ask is if you are working behind a crew sometime more than likely they could care less what it is gonna look like and save it for someone else to clean up the mess. It shouldn't be that way especially if they are working by the hour it don't make any sense. Seen many of these mud dogs claim that they are fast but the work looks like crap .

Re: Class 5 Finish

Re: Class 5 Finish


I would agree. Skimming entire surface with anything thicker than a screw coat is opening the doors for more imperfections. A thick skim over whole surface in only needed in light critical areas. And yes Ive done a lil level5

Re: Class 5 Finish


Maybe he is trying to get a Class 5 drivers license? I think you have to be able to touch up near the dash to get that?

Re: Class 5 Finish


I thought Class 5 was a river rapid rating? And you made it through?

(L5 is DEFINED as skimming the entire area, whether with mud or "primer")

We think we are funny. Doubt he does, though. Oh well, he's the one that asked the odd sounding question.

No Tim0,
class 5 is about drywall finishing or surface quality. You may be on wrong website as this website is about drywall work
