DRYWALL INSTALLATION

Since the 1950s, drywall has been one of the most commonly used construction materials in America because it is inexpensive, stable, and easier to work with than traditional plaster. However, drywall still requires an experienced hand to install properly. That's where we come in. A Point Painting & Remodeling LLC has been installing drywall in Brick Township construction projects for many years, and we guarantee that you will be satisfied with our work.

What is Drywall?

Drywall, otherwise known as gypsum board, is gypsum plaster sandwiched between two pieces of heavy paper. This is a much more efficient way to create plaster walls and ceilings, because installing drywall is far easier than working with wet plaster. In new construction, working with drywall will literally save days or weeks of work when compared to traditional plaster.

Installing drywall is a relatively straightforward process, but not a simple one. The first step is to frame the walls using studs – this is basically the skeleton of the wall. After the walls are framed, the drywall is measured and cut to fit the space, and holes are cut to accommodate pipes or wiring. The installers then hang the drywall by fastening them to the studs. Finally, the installers “finish” the drywall by filling the spaces between the sheets of drywall with spackle and drywall tape. The drywall must also be sanded to create a smooth, even surface that is suitable for painting.

A Point Painting & Remodeling LLC's Drywall Installation Process

To ensure a smooth and efficient installation process, our experienced team follows a specific drywall installation process.

This includes:

  • Preparation: We begin by preparing the space for drywall installation, which may include removing old drywall or repairing any pre-existing damage.
  • Measuring and cutting: Our team carefully measures and cuts the drywall to fit your space perfectly.
  • Installation: The drywall panels are then installed using screws or adhesive.
  • Taping and mudding: Once the panels are secured, we apply joint tape and joint compound (also known as "mud") to cover the seams between each panel.
  • Sanding: After the mud has dried, we sand down any excess compound to create a smooth and seamless finish.
  • Priming: Before painting, we apply a coat of primer to the drywall to ensure better paint adhesion and a more uniform finish.
  • Painting: Finally, we paint your walls according to your desired color and finish.

Our team is highly experienced in all aspects of drywall installation, from choosing the right materials to achieving a flawless finish.

How Long Should a Drywall Job Take?

The duration of a drywall installation job can vary depending on the size and complexity of the project. However, in general, a simple room or small area can take anywhere from one to two days to complete. For larger projects such as whole house installations, it may take several days or even weeks.

Factors that can affect the timeline of a drywall job include:

  • The size and shape of the space: A standard rectangular room will be quicker to install compared to a room with multiple angles and corners.
  • Accessibility: If the space is difficult to reach or requires scaffolding or additional equipment, it may add more time to the job.
  • Pre-existing conditions: If there are any existing issues, such as water damage or uneven walls, they will need to be addressed before the drywall can be installed, potentially extending the timeline.
  • Customizations: Any additional features, such as archways or built-in shelving, will add time to the installation process.

It’s important to discuss your timeline expectations with our contractor beforehand so we can provide a realistic estimate based on these factors.

Can You Drywall and Paint on the Same Day?

In some cases, drywall and painting can be done on the same day. This is known as a "wet" or "quick" drywall process. It involves applying a special fast-drying compound to the seams and screw holes of the drywall, allowing it to dry quickly so that it can be sanded and painted on the same day.

However, this method is not suitable for all projects as it may compromise the quality of the finish. For example, if your walls require multiple coats of paint or have intricate detailing such as texture, it would be best to wait for the traditional drywall installation process before painting.

Our team will assess your project and discuss with you whether a wet or traditional drywall process is best suited for your specific needs and timeline.
