We Install Drywall at the Best Price

Drywall, also known as plasterboard or gypsum board, is a panel made of gypsum plaster pressed between two thick sheets of paper. It is used to make interior walls and ceilings. 

The sheets of the drywall can be made from fiberglass instead of paper to prevent mold growth. Mold growth is common when using paper-based plasterboard that has been exposed to water due to plumbing leaks or floods.

Drywall, by contrast to plaster, requires hand finishing only at the fasteners and joints. The drywall process requires less labor and drying time, lending its name to the panels used in the assembly. 

How to Repair Drywall – The Home Depot

Water Damage and Mold

Drywall is easily damaged by exposure to water. While it can be waterproofed through covalent waterproofing, if waterproofing is absent or if the waterproofing layer is punctured, water will cause drywall to swell and eventually disintegrate, requiring replacement. Drywall is a porous, lightweight substance that supports the growth of mold. It is for this reason that greenboard and cement board is used for rooms expected to have high humidity. 

Spackling Paste

Spackling paste  is typically used to fill holes, small cracks and other minor surface defects in wood, drywall, and plasterSpackle is a registered trademark of the Muralo Company, located in Bayonne, New Jersey.  The word “spackle” has since become a genericized trademark applied in the United States to a variety of household hole-filling products.

Joint compound – Mud

Joint compound (also known as drywall compound) is a white substance similar to plaster used to seal joints between sheets of drywall, primarily in building construction. It is often referred to as drywall taping mud, or, simply as mud

Ready-mixed joint compound is most commonly used in hanging drywall for new or remodeled homes. Application is simple and easy, usually never taking more than three or four coats. When used for new walls, joint compound (mudding) effectively eliminates all blemishes from the surface of the drywall, such as drilled in screws, hanging tape, or drywall tape.

Joint compound can be used to finish gypsum panel joints, corner bead, trim and fasteners, as well as skim coating. In addition, it is also very handy for fixing minor blemishes or damages to walls. It easily patches up holes, bumps, tears, and other minor damages.

We Install Quality Flooring

Flooring is the general term for a permanent covering of a floor, or for the work of installing such a floor covering. Floor covering is a term to generically describe any finish material applied over a floor structure to provide a walking surface. Both terms are used interchangeably but floor covering refers more to loose-laid materials.
