Drywall Installation

Hanging drywall is a relatively simple task that can be completed within a matter of hours by our carpenters. Having the right tools and materials from the start of the process will definitely help to give the end result a professional look.

Installation Process

1. Before we get started, we need to measure the space where the drywall will be installed.

2. We measure the drywall and draw the line where it needs to be cut. The drywall should be approximately 1/4 of an inch smaller in width and height than the space where the drywall will be installed.

3. We use a utility knife to score the drywall on the line that you drew, then snap it off on the scored line.

4. Next, we put a bead of adhesive on each stud that will be covered by the drywall.

5. We place the drywall against the studs and insert a screw into the stud in the middle of it.

6. It is crucial to insert additional screws into the drywall at intervals of 16 inches on studs in the middle and 8 inches apart on vertical studs.

7. We then continue by covering the seams of the drywall in mesh tape and start with the vertical seams, and then the horizontal seams, and finally the corners.

8. Next, we spread compound over the tape and use a utility knife to flatten the compound and hide the seams.

9. To give your drywall the most professional look, we need to cover the tape with 3 total layers of compound and allow the compound 24 hours to dry between coats.

10. To finish off the job, we use a paint roller to cover the walls with a skim coat.

Note: It is imperative to use a measuring tape to measure the location of each electrical box in the wall, then transfer those measurements to the drywall panels after installing them on the wall. All our carpenters use a serrated utility knife to cut out a space for each electrical box. And as we always say; Don't forget to turn off the electricity in the room before completing this part of the project.
