Dry walling is a panel made of calcium sulphate dehydrate (gypsum) with or without additives and normally pressed between a facer and a backer (typically thick sheets of paper). It is used to make interior walls and ceilings. The plaster is mixed with fibre, plasticizer, foaming agent, and various additives that can decrease mildew, increase fire resistance, and lower water absorption.
Why use dry walling?
Most people are used to seeing dry walling. The material is used in almost every modern construction project and is one of the most common building materials on the planet. But why? What are the benefits of using drywall? Below are a few of the top benefits of using dry walling instead of other alternatives.
- Appearance – Before dry walling, most homes and building relied on plaster walls. Plaster was a time consuming process that was often hard to perfect. Then came dry walling , which made wall construction in buildings and homes much easier. Not only was the process quicker, but the walls and ceilings were much more attractive. The possibilities of good dry walling installation were endless and it soon became a highly desired part of any home. Most will agree that properly installed dry walling is simply beautiful. Homes that install dry walling in place of other materials can also see an increase in the value of their home, because of it.
- Energy Efficiency- Although there have been other types of materials used for walls in the past, nothing comes close to the energy efficiency of dry walling. Dry walling helps improve insulation and helps to retain room temperature much better than any alternatives, such as panelling.
- Fire Resistance – Not only is using dry walling better for your energy bills, but is much more fire resistant than other alternatives. This means that fire will not generally spread as quick and can better contain fires, which could save your home. More importantly, it could save your life.
- Cost and Up Keep – Although dry walling is by far the most attractive choice for your home, it is also one of the most cost efficient choices. Dry walling is affordable for anyone, looking to beautify their home or office. Changing the look of a room is as simple as painting the walls. With other materials, entire sections may need to be replaced, if not the entire walls.
3 Reasons to Hire a Professional for Drywall Installation
Tools & Vehicles
Even most do-it-yourself home improvement projects require a few specialized tools to get the job done right, and these need to be factored in to your expected costs. While drywall installation requires fewer tools than many other tasks, you’ll still need to buy items like a drywall t-square and sanding tools. You’ll also need to worry about transporting the large, fragile sheets from the hardware store to your home without breaking them. A professional drywall contractor, on the other hand, will have all the necessary tools already on hand.
Not only do drywall companies have the tools, they have the expertise to use them. Especially because drywall forms part of the visible interior of your home, a drywall company must hold itself to extremely high standards in any drywall repair or installation. This means you can expect a flawless finish instead of facing the temptation to allow yourself a few sloppy spots as reward for your hard work.
A fully insured professional contractor also frees you from both the possibility of injury and the stress of liability concerns. Drywall installation isn’t a one-person job, and as a do-it-yourselfer you may technically be liable for any injury that might befall anyone you’ve hired to help you. Not only will a reputable drywall company like Marquez Drywall employ licensed and insured contractors, they’ll also follow industry-standard safety precautions that you might not think of––even something as simple as face masks for sanding work can help avoid serious health problems.
