The Drywall Installation Process

It’s important to have a strong understanding of what’s involved in the drywall installation. Here is a step-by-step breakdown of what you can expect that process to look like. 

1. Choose The Drywall 

The first step in this process is to work with the drywall contractor to choose what kind of drywall you need for your home or business. You can go with the standard type or pick a drywall that has additional resistance to elements such as fire and moisture. In making this choice, consider where you live and whether or not those qualities will make a significant difference in maintaining your property. After choosing the drywall, you’ll just need to wait for it to arrive before moving on to the next step. 

2. Measure The Walls And Ceilings 

When the drywall arrives, your contractor will have measurements taken for the walls and ceilings. That way, they can prepare the drywall correctly for a successful installation. Your contractor will be very thorough when completing this step to avoid any problems along the way. 

3. Measure And Prepare The Drywall

Using the wall and ceiling measurements, the drywall contractor will next measure the drywall and prepare it for installation. The drywall will then be cut a quarter inch shorter than the measurements from the walls and ceilings before it’s finally hanged. 

4. Install The Drywall

When it comes to installing or hanging drywall, contractors will start with the ceiling and then work their way down to the walls. The drywall gets attached with either drywall screws or nails. Your contractor will be most knowledgeable about laying out and arranging the drywall sheets for the best results. Now there’s just one last step. 

5. Apply Drywall Finishing 

After all the drywall sheets have been installed or hung, it’ll be time to finish the drywall. Finishing drywall starts with covering any nails or screws that are still visible before putting paper tape over the seams. After that, a drywall finish will be applied to the ceiling and/or walls in three coats. You can then choose to paint your walls and/or ceiling whatever color you choose.

Drywall Repair And Replacement 

Drywall Installation contractors will also be there when your drywall requires repairs or replacement. This service might be needed if these parts of your home or business faced extensive damage during a natural disaster or if you are undertaking an ambitious remodeling project. It’s also a generally good idea to have your drywall touched up to prevent serious damage in the future.
