Drywall Art Sculpture- Taking my shark sculpture to another level

I’ve been creating drywall art sculptures of ocean scenes and 3D waves on the walls of homes, restaurants and doctors offices here in Brevard County, Florida for several years now. But, I had an idea of being able to take these drywall art sculptures from just walls and turn them into a framed, hand painted fine art sculpture that can be custom made and shipped to order anywhere in the US or around the world. These framed wall sculpture paintings can be hung on any wall without the sculpture artist having to be on site to create a custom wall sculpture.

The drywall art sculpture and painting process

Here’s a few photos of the drywall art sculpture as it goes through it’s transformation from just a sculpture to a framed and ready to hang piece of unique art.

Barry the cable guy stepped thru my popcorn ceiling!

One of my customers recently got more than cable tv and wireless internet, when Barry the cable guy went to run a couple new cables. Barry accidently stepped on the drywall ceiling from the backside while maneuvering across the trusses up in the attic over the living room hall.
Mr. Jones said he heard a very loud Crunch and Thud. When he went to see what had happened, Barry’s leg was hanging out of the popcorn ceiling! Drywall and insulation was all over the floor. Thankfully Barry was not injured.
This is where I come into the picture. Mr. Jones sent an estimate request through my website which went to my phone. After speaking with Mr. Jones, I went out to have a look and secure the drywall ceiling. Once the cable company ok’d the estimate, I went back and repaired the attic step thru and re-sprayed a popcorn texture blending it into the existing popcorn ceiling.

Here’s a few of the Before and After Photo’s of the Popcorn Ceiling Repair:

What to do with my old kitchen drop ceiling lighting?

Cocoa Beach condo kitchen ceiling light- Before

Cocoa Beach condo kitchen ceiling light- Before

It’s a common dilemma among home and condo owners that I’m sure most of you have seen before.

That Ugly, outdated grid lighting system in the kitchen of a Home!

Whether you’re thinking about doing a new kitchen remodel or your just looking to modernize and open up your kitchens feel and get rid of that outdated kitchen drop ceiling and kitchen lights.
This process that I developed many years ago will turn any of these eyesore ceilings into a show piece that you will love and your neighbors will envy. I’ve installed close to one hundred of these types of trey ceilings here in the Brevard County area over the years.

Here some photo’s of the process:

Chinese Drywall is here in Brevard County, Florida

I have seen numerous homes affected by Chinese Drywall here in Brevard County, Florida. Also, Orange County, Volusia county and Indian River County are reporting it as well.

There are some simple tests that can performed if you suspect that your potential clients home or business has Chinese drywall, we are prepared to perform a few checks as recommended by the State of Florida to confirm the possibility of tainted drywall.

Chinese Drywall is here in Brevard County, Florida.

States with chinese drywall reported.

Palm Bay, Florida home built in 2005:
Affected by Chinese Drywall

After being contacted to do a Chinese drywall inspection by the new owners of this home, I set up the appointment for the next day. As soon as I walked in the door it smelt like rotten eggs and my eyes started to immediately burn.

By the end of the Chinese drywall inspection, it was determined that the entire interior of this home contained Chinese drywall throughout including the garage drywall and the drywall ceiling on the pool patio as well.

Identification Method

(1) an initial or threshold inspection to find visual signs of metal corrosion and evidence of drywall installation during the relevant time period, and

(2) the identification of corroborating evidence or characteristics.

The identification process is two steps:

Step 1: Threshold Inspection

(a) Blackening of copper electrical wiring and/or air conditioning evaporator coils; and

(b) The installation of new drywall (for new construction or renovations) between 2001 and 2008. A positive result for this step (including both criteria) is a prerequisite to any further consideration.

Visual inspection must show:

Step 2: Corroborating Evidence

Because it is possible that corrosion of metal in homes can occur for other reasons, it is important to obtain additional corroborating evidence of problem Chinese Drywall. Homes with the characteristic metal corrosion problems must also have at least 2 of these corroborating conditions if the new drywall was installed between 2005 and 2008.
For installations between 2001 and 2004, at least 4 of the following conditions must be met. Collecting evidence of these corroborating conditions will in some cases require professional assessors and/or testing by analytical laboratories.

a) Corrosive conditions in the home, demonstrated by the formation of copper sulfide on copper coupons (test strips of metal) placed in the home for a period of 2 weeks to 30 days or confirmation of the presence of sulfur in the blackening of the grounding wires and/or air conditioning coils;

(b) Confirmed markings of Chinese origin for drywall in the home;

(c) Strontium levels in samples of drywall core found in the home (i.e. excluding the exterior paper surfaces) exceeding 1200 parts per million (ppm);

(d) Elemental sulfur levels in samples of drywall core found in the home exceeding 10 ppm;

(e) Elevated levels of hydrogen sulfide, carbonyl sulfide and/or carbon disulfide emitted from samples of drywall from the home when placed in test chambers using ASTM Standard Test Method D5504-08 or similar chamber or headspace testing;

(f) Corrosion if copper metal to form copper sulfide when copper is placed in test chambers with drywall samples taken from the home.

Completely Professional!
I have had a number of contractors do work on homes I have owned over the years and Peck Drywall and Painting is only the second that I would rate as completely professional. Beginning with an extremely user friendly well laid out website, promptness in giving an estimate for doing a knockdown textured ceiling and then scheduling and completing the job as well as cleaning up after themselves, the only thing I can say is professional, professional, professional. The bid for the job was very competitive and I would be very hard pressed to find anything to complain about.<br/>

Chuck P. Melbourne Beach, Fl

 

Great Work & Great Price!

Peck provides high quality work at competitive pricing. I was impressed with the painting of the exterior of our home as well as the repair and staining to our pool deck. The company’s employees were timely, courteous and professional. I found completion of the project to be timely with quality products. I solicit and manage contracted services in my professional career and would not hesitate to solicit proposals from this contactor for business or personal projects in the future.

Hi Paul,
