Drywall Installation and Repair

Drywall is panels of pressed gypsum plaster between heavy paper. Drywall is also known as plasterboard, wallboard and gypsum board. Some people call it “Sheetrock,” but Sheetrock a registered trademark of the company that produces drywall – much like Kleenex produces tissues.Drywall comes in three basic thicknesses:

5/8 inch is heaviest and the most soundproof
3/8 inch is best to cover existing walls
1/4 inch is the choice for curved walls and arches. 

When hanging drywall, the ultimate goal is to create the fewest number of seams possible. This means working with the largest drywall panels and pieces you can handle safely.Good to KnowVertical joints in drywall are also called "butt joints."

Popcorn Ceiling Removal

A popcorn ceiling, also known as an acoustic ceiling, is a term for a spray-on or paint-on ceiling treatment used from the late 1950s into the 1980s in American residential construction. Cheaper than painting, it could be quickly and easily sprayed on in new construction and was also useful in masking ceiling defects in older homes, such as stains, uneven ceilings or poor workmanship. It was the standard for bedroom and residential hallways ceilings for its noise reduction qualities, while kitchen and living rooms ceilings would normally be textured in smoother skip-trowel or orange peel texture for their higher durability and ease of cleaning. Popcorn ceilings become unattractive when they get dirty, are easily damaged, and are hard to clean, repaint, or repair.
