    Factory applied level seems like a good way to go.

    The course was very educative and gave me a better understanding of the 5 levels of finish for GWB. I encourage every Architect and contractor to do the course!

    Quite informative as I was not aware of the different finish levels with GWB. I also was not familiar with the pre-finished GWB and have not seen it in practice.

    I truly enjoyed this course. The different level of gypsum board finishes I did not understand entirely. I certainly wasn’t aware of the factory-applied level 5 finish. This is valuable information to me that was very much needed.
    Thanks
