Drywall is a building material used to make walls and ceilings that are not weight-bearing. It can be used to make many other architectural features as well. When broken, it only requires simple fixes, and comparatively to using plaster and lath the installation is quick and easy. As such a central part to building most homes and businesses, most people are familiar with drywall – but that doesn’t mean that anyone should install it.
For drywall in Maple Grove, always trust a professional to install or repair it correctly. Here at DuraPro Painting, we proudly install and repair drywall. In fact, we are so proud of our contractor’s ability to install drywall that we have compiled a list of five reasons why you should choose drywall for your walls.
Easier to Install
Before the use of drywall, walls were crafted out of layer after layer of wet plaster on top of wooden supports, known as lath. This process could take weeks, as each layer of plaster would have to dry before adding a new coat. In comparison, drywall is a much simpler process and can be completed in a matter of days!
Extra Layer of Protection
Drywall adds an additional layer between the outside and the inside. This layer creates a barrier against temperatures and noises from outside the house. When used on inside walls, drywall can create a sound barrier, making it less likely that sound will travel throughout the whole house.
Easy to Fix
While drywall may be susceptible to dents or scratches, it can be repaired with ease. Simply gather some spackle, a putty knife and sandpaper and your drywall can be good as new once again! For larger damage, like holes, a professional can replace that section of drywall and repair it so you would never be able to tell there had been a hole in the first place.
Resistant to Mildew
Additionally, drywall is resistant to mildew. The additives in drywall prevent mildew from growing on your new drywall, protecting the health of you and your family.
Gives a Uniform Finish
Drywall provides a smooth, uniform look in each room of your house. Once primed for paint, drywall can be painted with ease compared to older methods of creating walls. Plaster and lath would have to be sanded to be smooth enough to paint without issue.
