Tuscaloosa Tornado Building Contractors in Tuscaloosa Alabama rebuilding after the Tornado Tore our Town apart
I live in Tuscsaloosa Alabama and im a Contractor so I know how hard its been over the past 4 or 5 years to stay in business because the recession
I have people calling me from all over the country wanting to know if their are any jobs here yet, If you havent seen this damage, it is so bad that it will probably be august or september before they have it cleaned up enough to start rebuilding.
If your an out of town Contractor and you want to come to help rebuild, just know that your gonna have to jump through hoops to get licened by the city. The cost for local contractors to get a city license is $355 and them you have to get county license on top of that.
Then you have to plan on very strict inspections and regulations that they have just inacted to make sure every structure is better than before.
I just tell you this to let everyone what to expect if you come here to work.
The hotels are packed and all the rental houses are just about full form what Igathered by talking to realestate folks so plan ahead for this, i see some people on facebook saying their loading up all their men and coming from all over, please plan ahead before you get here and find out you dont have a place to stay.
with that said, there is alot of work here to be done for sure. God Bless, Shannon Cook

Actual pictures from a lady who watched the youtube videos of how to drywall mud over wallpaper and transformed her ugly bathroom into a new updated bathroom without removing the wallpaper first
p>Here’s the comment and pictures sent to me of the before and after pictures of her bathroom she did herself after watching the videos i put on youtube of how to solid coat drywall mud over wallpaper so it can be painted without stripping it first.
COMMENT: Dear Drywalldoc Thank you for your video’s. They were invaluable to me in the renovation of my 20 year old bathroom. You were extremely helpful both in your instruction and the way you were able to convince me I could do it on my own.
I never would have thought it were possible if you had not shone me how easy it was. It took me 3 days and I could not be more proud of the work we accomplished. Thank you very much.
Attached are a couple of Pictures.
here’s the first video in that series
What to do about textured wallpaper, remove it or mud over it?
I recieved this question, and want to elibrate on it.
here we go:
I have done this with dozens of jobs, mostly because “removing grass wallpaper” is like fighting big foot in the woods at night with a switch.
I assume you are talking about the “grass wallpaper”, if you pull it off sometimes you will have a residue of glue
If so i have done two things in those cases.
1. Remove what you can of the wallpaper, and then prime over remaining glue with zinsser oil based stain blocker, and then mud over that to smooth all rough places out, just like in the videos.
2. Prime over the grass wallpaper with Zinsser stail blocking oil based primer”, two coats if necessary, then put one fairly thick drywal mud coat over the grass wallpaper, followed by two or three more coats, getting thinner and tighter every coat until perfectly smooth and ready to sand with 120 grit sand paper or a medium grit sanding block.
You should end up with a little over an 1/8″ of mud on the wall.
The zinsser primer will lock the wallpaper into the sheetrock and not allow it to peel off.
I use “Zinsser oil based stain blocking primer” over the “KILZ” brand because the “KILZ PRIMER” burns my eyes and even when wearing a good ventilation mask, it still gets strong, i use the good mask with any oil based primer because they are all really strong and will kill as many brain cells as taking a 20 minute ride on “willie nelson’s bus”.
good luck and god bless
