Frequently asked questions about drywall installation contractors

Drywall is the paneling that is used to create walls and ceilings inside a room. It should look smooth, as if it were a single surface, rather separate panels. So, it’s important to have your drywall hung by the best drywall installation contractor you can find in your area. A pro will know that drywall should not touch a concrete floor. This is because moisture will wick up into the drywall. The moisture can provide an environment that encourages the growth of harmful mold. There should be a distance of approximately ⅜ of an inch between the bottom of the drywall and the concrete floor.

Drywall is heavy and awkward to maneuver. In order to hang drywall so that it does not touch the floor, a drywall contractor will use a drywall lift. This is one of the specialized pieces of equipment a contractor will have at the ready. Along with the right tools for the job, a drywall installation pro will have the know how to get your drywall hung so that it is smooth. A pro can get the installation done quickly, saving you time and potentially expensive headaches down the line.

It may be tempting to hang new wooden doors before the drywall has been hung. However, hanging doors before the drywall has been installed is not advisable. When contractors are hanging drywall, and even when they are taping and painting the drywall there is a big risk of damaging expensive and vulnerable woodwork such as doors. Drywall hanging produces a great deal of dust that can stick to the wood. Drywall dust is difficult to get rid of. Drywall contractors often use rotary cutters to cut around door and window openings. Having even the door jambs in place at this stage makes it more difficult for the worker, and risks damaging the hardware.

If you are unsure about the steps that are taken as a room is constructed, hire a pro. A pro will have the knowledge and experience needed to get your home improvement project done properly. A drywall installation expert will know how to protect your valuable investment as your new room takes shape. They can get the job done safely and on time.

The drywall installation process takes plenty of time. This is partly because the drywall mud, which is also called the joint compound, used to finish drywall joints and corners in drywall installations takes 24 to dry. This joint compound has to dry completely between each coat. Drywall mud also has to be completely dry before sanding, priming and painting can take place. A drywall installation contractor will be aware of some tips and tricks for speeding up the drying process for the joint compound.

To speed up the drying process, the contractor may turn up the temperature in the room. The drywall expert may choose to apply thinner layers of joint compound after the first thick layer has been applied and has been allowed to dry. The contractor may bring in industrial fans to get the air moving, and set up a dehumidifier. If you want to get your drywall installation done as quickly as possible and avoid potentially costly errors, it may make sense to bring in a drywall installation pro.

The length of time it takes to install drywall in new construction varies according to a number of factors. So, it is difficult to say exactly how long it will take to install drywall in a new home or office space when it is being constructed. The broadest estimate for drywall installation is one day to four weeks.

However, the time it will take is affected by the number of people carrying out the installation, and their level of expertise. The temperature and humidity in your area at the time of the construction will affect the amount of time it will take for each layer of joint compound to dry. A drywall installation pro may bring in fans, turn up the heat, and install a dehumidifier to somewhat mitigate this factor. The size of the walls and the number of windows and doors will affect how long drywall installation will take. Awkward angles and curves, as well as working around outlets, switches, and vents, all take more time when installing drywall. Count on a drywall pro to offer a valid estimate for how long it will take for installation.

Robert did an outstanding job putting together our new kitchen island and two bar stools. While he was there, he also installed a lock, a light fixture, and put up three smoke detectors. He was very professional. Will call him again. Would recommend!

I hired him to build a chain link fence gate for my house. He was professional, courteous, and completed the task quickly. I did not have time to shop around for pricing so I am unsure of how his prices compare for this type of work.
