Drywall, Wallboard, Sheetrock, Gypsum Board, Plasterboard
Drywall, often referred as wallboard, sheetrock, gypsum board or plasterboard, is a popular building material used on walls and ceilings. To produce drywall, gypsum is first mixed with fiber, pressed between two sheets of paper board and then kiln dried. Drywall comes in a number of sizes and has a sturdy construction and smooth finish due to its unique drying process. Our drywall contractor are able to complete projects in short time by using larger sheets, as the number of joints to be finished, are reduced. Drywall is usually available in ½ in thickness. However sheets are also available in varying thicknesses ranging from ¼ in. to 1 in. Drywall can be installed easily and offers thermal resistance and a good sound barrier.

It is best to contact an experienced drywall contractor to get the job done. Our drywall contractors take care of everything right from the cutting of holes for switches and outlets, to the proper fitting and hanging of drywall with use of nails or screws.
Drywall can act as a fire resistance device. During the manufacturing process water becomes trapped inside the gypsum. The transfer of heat is reduced due to evaporation of the water content. So when two rooms are separated by a drywall, fire in one room will take longer to transfer to the other.
