Since the 1950s, drywall has been one of the most commonly used construction materials in America because it is inexpensive, stable, and easier to work with than traditional plaster. However, drywall still requires an experienced hand to install properly. That’s where we come in. Darrel Lightsey Drywall has been installing drywall in Fairplay construction projects for many years, and we guarantee that you will be satisfied with our work.
Drywall, otherwise known as gypsum board, is gypsum plaster sandwiched between two pieces of heavy paper. This is a much more efficient way to create plaster walls and ceilings, because installing drywall is far easier than working with wet plaster. In new construction, working with drywall will literally save days or weeks of work when compared to traditional plaster.
Installing drywall is a relatively straightforward process, but not a simple one. The first step is to frame the walls using studs – this is basically the skeleton of the wall. After the walls are framed, the drywall is measured and cut to fit the space, and holes are cut to accommodate pipes or wiring. The installers then hang the drywall by fastening them to the studs. Finally, the installers “finish" the drywall by filling the spaces between the sheets of drywall with spackle and drywall tape. The drywall must also be sanded to create a smooth, even surface that is suitable for painting.
