If you are reading this blog post there is a good chance that you have been considering picking up the phone and connecting with a trustworthy contractor capable of bringing your home improvement dreams to life. If those dreams happen to require the need for drywall installation, then you have come to the right place.
To make sure your drywall needs are met, some vital information is required to ensure we are able to provide you with the appropriate service keeping within the designated budget you have determined for this project.
Typically, we will require you to provide us with a copy of your construction plans or drawings (to do the takeoffs) and it is important for you to let us know at what stage of construction your project is currently in. This information will allow us to look into the specifications and codes determined by the municipality for which you reside. For example, will your project require the installation of fire-rated drywall or will your walls need to be soundproofed?
When you have provided us with the necessary information, we will arrange a suitable time to meet on site and will then compare the structural drawings to the current framing of your home or office. After surveying the location and measuring the scope of your project we will provide you with an estimate free of charge.

Drywall installation has no differences in winter and summer time. The delivery of materials doesn’t make a big difference either. However most drywall contractors I talk to in Toronto know that taping, mudding and sanding take way longer in the winter than usually in the summer. The best and the fastest way for the mud to dry is low humidity and high temperature. In the winter every time when doors are open the heat is running away and the mud gets colder, it takes much longer to dry. On the other hand, if windows and doors are closed the humidity rises, the mud gets more moist and it takes longer to dry again. in order to achieve the best results and the shorter time for drying the drywall contractor should be knowledgeable enough and have enough experience to balance temperature and humidity. The house needs to be heated well ventilated by the means of fans and open windows. There should be nice timing for the windows to be opened so that humidity could reduce and closed after some time before it gets too cold which will lower the temperature of the sheetrock or compound and make drying time longer.
When professional drywall contractor gives you a quote they can never promise or guarantee the exact amount of time required of finishing the project, as it’s not possible because one never knows how long it will dry. From my experience I can predict with 95% accuracy how long it will take, but will never take a chance to guarantee, even though I can tell exactly how many days or even hours it will take to install drywall.
Remember, when choosing the professional contractor pay attention to their promises. If they guarantee the exact time for the project which is shorter, than that of all the other contractors, there is a big chance that the contractor is a novice in the business. The best way to find drywall and taping contractors in Toronto is either trough your friends or on www.homestars.com this site is very reliable with all the materials and reviews they provide. Of course no one is perfect so make your decision based on your research.
Sound is a powerful energy that can be a major nuisance to people. Be it sound from our homes or offices, or sound from the external sources, it can be a major headache if not handled appropriately. As such, there is a need to ensure that you find a good way to have the problem covered and handled for an improved, more silent living environment. One of the best ways to accomplish this is to soundproof a specific room, office or even your whole house. Soundproofing works by withholding excess decibels of sound from travelling into or out of a room. This lets you and others around you an easier time without excess sound or noise disturbance- ultimately lowering chances of calling the police on you.
When looking for the ultimate soundproofing experience for your home or office, then going for the best soundproofing option available is the best thing that you can do. Soundproof classes come in different levels and each stands on its own pedestal on how well it delays, absorbs or restricts noise transmission. STC- sound transmission class is the standard at which noise reduction levels are measured on. The higher the STC level- above 60- the lower the sound transmission in or out of a room, house or building .This means that for you to block the most amount of sound from travelling out or in to a room, you need a good and powerful soundproof solution that will hold off all the noise.
Soundproofing mostly relies on installing a soundproof drywall and adding layers of necessary soundproof material that will keep off vibration and sound waves. There are several options available in sound proofing and which range from; adding a new layer of drywall to the existing drywall effectively lowering sound transmission; adding a sound deadening soft, fibrous board on to the wall which essentially absorbs sound; the other option is adding mass loaded vinyl on your drywall, this is one of the most effective soundproofing options; adding green glue on to your wall and drywall, which boosts an effect known as damping, where sound vibration is converted into energy, effectively cutting noise transmission; and the last, most effective option available is where channel, green glue, resilient clips and drywall are all used to sound proof a room for the best soundproofing experience.
The latter option requires a professional installer to have it installed. This option calls for removing of your existing drywall and have another put in place. This option capitalizes on all four elements for effective soundproofing; that is absorption, mass, decoupling and damping. This option offers 61 and 66 STC and comes in two options of insulation. The 61 STC has two 5/8 inch layers of drywall and 7/8 inches of drywall furring channel held in place with 24” OC stud spacing and a whisper clip on one 5/8 inch drywall layer. The 66 STC soundproofing option has two 5/8 inch drywall layers plus 2 tubes of 4×8 sheet of green glue plus a 7/8 inch drywall furring channel at 24” on center spacing and a whisperclip on one 5/8 inch drywall layer.
With this soundproofing option you have the best sound elimination option installed in place for a working noise reduction solution. However, this option is the most labor intensive and requires experienced and well trained soundproofing experts to handle its installation. That is why when looking to have the ultimate soundproofing tasks done for you, take time and find a good soundproofing company in Toronto to handle the soundproof drywall task. It may seem rather costly, but the overall job will leave you to enjoy the best experience in sound quality and noise reduction.
Make sure that the company you go for will use to some of the best quality materials for the job. Quiet Rock is a soundproofing product manufacturing company that offers the best materials and products for the ultimate soundproof task. While the channel, green glue, resilient clips and drywall combination with last soundproofing option does wonders and offers insulation of up to 66 STC, you still can push this level up to 80+ STC with Quiet Rock soundproofing, high quality materials.

How we price the drywall installation?
There are several methods we use when we have to price the drywall job. Preliminary quote on drywall boarding can be issued over a telephone based on the square footage of the area that needs drywall installation.
As drywall contractors we need to know the total area of drywall board for the rough quote. We usually ask over the phone total floor area and clarify if the area is an open concept or divided on section/rooms. Than we ask about ceiling height. The formula for open concept area on drywall installation total square footage is floor area square footage multiplied by 3.5 , for the area with rooms: floor area sq footage multiplied by 4.
For example, if we required to install drywall in the house that has 5000 sq foot of the floor area with 8’ ceiling height and open concept, than amount of the drywall board that we will have to install will be roughly 5000×3.5=17500 sq ft.
Than we multiply the total square footage of the drywall board by the price per square foot.
Of course it works the best if the drywalled area doesn’t have custom features like multiple custom shaped skylights, cathedral ceilings in rooms and unusually shaped entrances, amount of corner beads also play role in the drywall installation pricing. In the case of custom situation it will be the best to arrange for a visit of our certified professional drywall estimator to get more accurate quote.
