Drywall finishers, also called tapers, prepare unfinished interior drywall panels for painting by taping and finishing joints and imperfections within the drywall.
Drywall finishers use a paper tape to cover the seams between two hung drywall panels. They then spread joint compound into and along each side of the joint between the drywall panels using the flat, wide tip of a special trowel. This results in a uniform and almost visually perfect surface.
