  • Installation

    Drywall is a panel made of calcium sulphate dihydrate (gypsum) with or without additives and usually pressed between a facer and a backer. 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. Drywall, also known as hanging drywall, is an affordable way of giving your home or commercial space a new lease on life. A small financial investment can work wonders for the look of unfinished or outdated areas, such as basements, garages, workshops, offices, storefronts, in little time.

    Taping

    Embedded in a layer of drywall joint compound, drywall tape creates a physical bond between adjacent sheets of drywall. Although the bond does not significantly contribute to the structural support of the drywall sheets, the bond reduces the movement and cracking of the sheets. There are two types of drywall tape: paper and fibreglass mesh. We always use paper tape for inside corners but may use paper or fibreglass on flat surfaces. We only use the best quality materials to ensure our satisfaction guarantee.

    Mudding

    Various types of mudding compound can be used when completing the mudding process. We choose the best compound depending on the purpose of the room and the paint type that will be used to finish the wall.

    Finishing

    Sanding down the dried mudding compound to a smooth finish is the last step. This part of the process allows for a seamless wall to the touch when completed.
