What our clients say

We had two drywall jobs performed by Andres and his company, Level 5 Drywall, – one large and recently a small job. We had to have extensive plumbing repairs done and mold remediation services performed, and subsequently ended up with a big 7 foot hole and three smaller wholes in our living room wall, as well as two large holes in our garage. We had two contractors …

We can’t say enough about the excellent experience we had having Andres and his “Level 5 Drywall” crew take care of our drywall needs after a major remodeling project we had done at our home. We had the electrical wiring and lighting fixtures totally upgraded. Wires were replaced and re-routed through every room … [popuppress id=”130″]

Nick P.Redondo Beach
Being a business owner staying open during construction is very important. We had 2 weeks to remodel our new sandal room. I called Andres and he was there in a few days and had the job done before he promise. Andres came to the rescue and ensured we were open before the summer rush!

Level 5 Drywall is amazing. They keep their promises, arrive on time, prepare the work space to keep your home clean, do immaculate work and clean up everything before they leave. I challenge you to find where they patch a wall. It is so well done that you can’t find it. Everyone is polite and they do all you ask of them. It is rare to find a business that is so concentrated on customer service. You will be extremely pleased with their work.
Patty W.Rolling Hills
I am extremely satisfied customer of Level 5 Drywall. The work is professional, completed on a timely manner and when its done, the team cleans better than a housekeeper! I would recommend them to anyone who needs drywall work done!

I’ve used Andres (Level 5 Drywall) on multiple occasions for big and small repairs around my house and have never been disappointed. He is always on time and takes the extra time to explain what needs to be done any why. Have never been disappointed by the finished work and clean up is thorough like no one was there. His prices have always been extremely reasonable. I give Andres / Level 5 drywall my highest recommendation and will definitely be using them again when something comes up.
John TsaoRedondo Beach
Andres and his crew are the best! They have the most excellent prices for the services they provide. When I called for an estimate, Andres showed up on time and always gave me a thorough and reasonable estimate. He and his crew showed up on time and their work was amazing. Professional all the way from start to finish. I have recommend Level 5 Drywall to several friends and family members and will never hesitate to call Andres again for quality work!
Gina ShearerTorrance
A friend of ours referred us to Andres and level 5 drywall for our kitchen remodel. They were always easy to get a hold of, showed up on time, and cleaned up before they left each day. Their communication and work ethic were great. I would use them again.
Ben KleinRancho Palos Verdes
Andres from Level 5 Drywall earned 5 stars from Me! He and his team were on-time, professional, clean and provided a reasonable-fair price! The center of my family room ceiling was damaged from a water leak, Andres gave me two options, patching the area only or patching the area and re texturing the complete …

Andre Salgado has worked for us on several occasions as we have moved through our house with renovations. We have found his work to be excellent. Drywallers frequently have a reputation of being ‘messy’. To the contrary, he is very careful and thorough in cleanup. Work areas are sealed off to minimize the mess of drywall work. We have found him to be very dependable, personable, honest with fair estimates and work completed on time. We just had him complete an estimate for our next room renovation!
Mike & SallyRedondo Beach
Andres repaired a gaping hole left in my wall by a restoration company, due to a water pipe leak a couple years ago. After Andres finished the drywall I needed to call a painter. The painter commented on how seamless the drywall job was because he said it made his job so much easier. Fast forward to a year later, I needed to call Andres to drywall another area which had been torn into by the plumber, after another water pipe broke. Andres not only returned my call right away, but …
Connie Y.Redondo Beach
Andres and his crew did a magnificent job! They were professional, sensitive to time deadlines, tarps were put up to keep the dust contained, final product was better than ever expected. I could not have been happier! Highly recommend!
Karen FarranSan Pedro
Andres Salgado came to work at my home in Palos Verdes Estates when another contractor was not performing quality work. I talked to Andres about my expectations for the project. His crew jumped in and did an amazing job. I later, had Andres work on my property in the Hollywood Hills. He did me a huge favor by traveling across town to help me complete my project. I would without reservation recommend the team Level Five Sheetrock and it’s owner Andres Salgado.
Dina CoulterPalos Verdes Estates
Andres and his team did a great job on our drywall project. We had a number of repairs that needed to be done, which they did flawlessly. They were here on time and their work was top-quality. We would definitely use them again!
Eric H.Torrance
My experience in dealing with Andres Salgado and the Level 5 Drywall team was amazingly positive. They were recommended by a friend of mine who is really perfectionist! I figured if they could make him happy they must be pretty amazing. From the minute I met Andres I knew everything was going to be great. He arrived right on time and provided me with a VERY reasonable quote for the labor and materials that would be needed to transform my garage …
Clint P.Rolling Hills
I have used Level 5 drywall many times over the past few years, and each time I am impressed by how courteous, professional, and efficient they are. Their work is of the highest quality and has helped to keep the integrity of our historic home.

About us

Level 5 is a family business, formerly known as Salgado Drywall, for over 35 years. After years under our father’s training and mentoring we have mastered the drywalling craft. We decided to do things right and become a licensed company. Still providing the same quality service but with the coverage to protect our customers. We are determined to continue our father’s legacy of craftsmanship by providing nothing but the best quality work and service to our customers.

Level 5 Drywall provides quality service to homeowners and contractors seeking a level 5 finish, our area of expertise. We also specialize in soundproofing, removing acoustic ceilings, electrical wire patching, water damage repair, matching existing texture, and skim coating old walls and ceilings to make them look like new again. From complete drywall work in a custom home to repairing a hairline crack, no job is too small!

We specialize in drywall installations, repairs, taping and skim coating

WHY LEVEL 5

A level 5 finish is the highest caliber that can be achieved in drywall. Regardless of how skilled the tradesman is and how flat his seams, there is still a difference of texture between the drywall paper and areas where joint compound has been applied. If painting without applying a skim coat, drywall seams may photograph through the paint due to difference of texture. Therefore, by applying a skim coating over the entire surface any incidental imperfections in the drywalled area are filled.  This will insure the entire surface will be uniformly smooth across seams, fasteners, and drywall paper. It is highly recommended where high gloss paints and direct lighting or large windows are near. Critical lighting may include side-lighting from fixture or windows.

HOW IT WORKS

Choose the level based on the area and finish you need. We will also provide our expert advice based on our professional assessment. Give us a call for a free quote.

Joint tape is set with a thin layer of  joint compound at all joints and interior corners. Joints and fastener heads (nail, screws, accessories) do not need to be embedded with joint compound. Recommended use:  plenums above ceiling, attics, service corridors, elevator shafts, concealed and hidden areas.


As in level 1, all seams, angles, fastener heads, (nail, screws, accessories) and corner beads are covered with a thin coat of joint compound. The surface must be free from excess joint compound, but tool marks and ridges are acceptable. Recommended use: garages, warehouses, mechanical rooms,  and other storage areas.


As in level 2, joints, angles, and fasteners will receive an second coat. Joints, fastener heads and corner beads need two coats of joint compound at this level, whereas in level 2 you just need one coat. All surfaces including joint compound, shall be smooth and free of ridges. Recommended use: Where a heavy wall covering or medium to heavy texture will be applied over the wall surface.


Fasteners, joints, angles, and corner beads have a total of three coats. Joint compound has been sanded smooth, there cannot be any tool marks or ridges, and is ready to be primed and painted. A level 4 finish is used where flat paints and light textures will be applied. It is the most common type of finish and is considered the typical drywall level of finish. Recommended use: With flat paints or light textures finishes. Enamel, semi-gloss, and gloss paints not recommended for level 4 finish.


For a level 5 finish, a level 4 finish is achieved and then a thin skim coat is applied over entire surface. The skim coat can be a joint compound of a manufactured material specifically for this purpose. This skim coat is smooth and does not have any ridges or tool marks and is sanded in detail to a smooth finish.  Primer and paint must still be applied. Recommended use: For flat, enamel, semi-gloss, and gloss paints. Additional textures are not recommended.
