About Distinctive Drywall

Distinctive Drywall was built on a foundation of core principles that include providing exceptional quality, delivering superior customer service, demonstrating integrity and respect, and giving customers the highest value for their investment. 

Joe Shimanski, the founder and owner of Distinctive Drywall, Inc. became involved in the construction industry at a very young age, cleaning up construction debris and helping out at his father’s jobsites.  After graduating from high school, Joe went to work at a family friend’s drywall business where he learned and mastered all of the technical aspects of the trade.  He soon learned that the drywall phase was perceived by customers as one of the most dreaded phases of the building process.  He had a vision early in his career that this could be a more enjoyable experience for customers. Joe founded Distinctive Drywall in 2001 and started realizing this vision.  As a result of Joe’s dedication and passion to provide customers the best experience, the team at Distinctive Drywall is now recognized as one of the top producing drywall companies in the Twin Cities.
