The Top 5 Reasons to Install Drywall at Your Home

DryWallTaping®

Building or remodeling an office, a commercial plaza, a restaurant, or your own home often involves the use of drywall. There are a lot of good reasons why. The wall system is high performing and durable. The majority of them are gypsum-based, though there are variations. Meaning, you’ll find several options available depending on your environment – moisture, fire prone, etc.

For those who are planning renovations and want to know whether drywall installation is a good option for them, consider the following these five reasons below.

Drywall installation is quick

Compared to other construction materials, drywall can be installed faster. The time you spend on fitting walls will be at least five times less if you hire a professional drywall contractor in Toronto. The buildout and installation of drywall varies according to its size and how many walls are involved.

Their weight also varies depending on the material they’re made of and the size of their walls. If you want the installation done by a drywall installation contractor, you will undoubtedly need their assistance.

The reason for that is that drywall finishing and taping require experience. The corners are especially susceptible to cracking if it is not done right. However, that can’t be considered as a disadvantage. All properties are structurally based on their walls. They influence the aesthetics and stability of any surface with their excellent drywall installation.

Easily repairable

Drywall plastering reduces impact resistance and therefore cracks and dents. Because such problems are often unavoidable, it’s a good thing that drywall can be fixed quickly.

Large holes can be patched even if they are enormous. The drywall in your home is not likely to need to be replaced unless it has been damaged by fire or water. In a matter of minutes, you can fix the drywall problem with a few simple repairs.

Drywall offers a variety of solutions

Walls and ceilings can be covered with drywall. When you combine lighting and the right painting service with wall and ceiling ideas, you can come up with hundreds of plans. A drywall partition can be used when you remodel a basement, split the office into several sections, or need space to accommodate the newborn.

The dry wall is soundproof

Soundproofing solutions can be provided by a drywall contractor if you are concerned about noise at your property. Wallboard can be actually used to isolate internal noises without increasing the wall’s thickness if the street is too noisy or if there is too much traffic noise coming from the street.

Fire-resistant Drywall

You should know that drywall is not fireproof, but it is fire resistant. As a result, it will continue to burn, but will slow down any further spreading of fire. The importance of this cannot be overstated. This will allow you to evacuate the building in time and, in turn, save your life.

Drywalls have many benefits beyond these, but these are the most important ones. An experienced drywall service company can offer a variety of options to meet all your needs. With the right interior painting service, drywall can also provide excellent thermal insulation, increased protection from mold, and stunning aesthetic results.

Commercial Seamless Drywall Installation

Commercial drywall usually is installed vertically standing, it’s easier to install and tape drywall seams after.

But on our recent drywall taping project on a 5000 sq. ft. condo on Wellington Street for Strathcona Construction we encounter different technic and at first were surprised with GC decision to install it two-sheets horizontally on walls plus cutting one of the sheets into two pieces.

After interesting debate we can see the point of the architect. Because the client is really concerned with the quality of finish he doesn’t mind spending more on getting a seamless wall. It is a visual trick that anybody can use on their own home’s project.

You cut one piece of drywall to make it 30’’ or so wide and install along the wall bottom. Than on top of it on the wall you install a solid regular 48’’ sheet and on top you put the rest of your bottom cut piece.

This way on a regular human body height on a long wall (and walls are really long at that condo) if you are using 12’ drywall you can see very few vertical seams, which makes the wall visually seamless.

Very smart decision and nice thinking about customer satisfaction.

Drywall Installation Pricing

If the area of your BASEMENT is 700-1,200 sq. ft. you would need a budget of about $4,700 – $12,650. The package would include installation of 1/2” ceiling board, installation of 1/2” regular drywall on walls and bulkheads, installation of 1/2” water resistant drywall in the bathroom, installation of 1/2” densshield in bathroom tiled areas, installation of metal corner bids, taping and sending of new drywall, smooth ceiling, ready for primer. Labour materials and delivery included.

 

If the area of your HOUSE is 1,200-3,500 sq.ft. you would need a budget of about $6,800 – $36,200 The package would include installation of 1/2” ceiling board, installation of 1/2” regular drywall on walls and bulkheads, installation of 1/2” water resistant drywall in the bathrooms, installation of 1/2” densshield in bathrooms tiled areas, installation of metal corner bids, taping and sending of new drywall, smooth ceiling, ready for primer. Labour materials and delivery included.

 

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.

D300 Drywall Trim

Our recent drywall installation and taping project in Kensington market Toronto had an architectural feature.

This D300 Drywall Trim is designed to provide crisp clean reveals around openings or at ceiling and floors. The holes and knurled surface provides an excellent ‘key’ for finishing with joint compound. For use with 1/2″ drywall to provide a 1/2″ or 5/8″ reveal.

D300 Drywall Trim

By design of the custom home we had to install the d300 molding around the perimeter of the walls 5 ” from the floor. From our 10 years of practice as drywall contractors in Toronto it was our approx 10th time we had to install this moulding. The Z-shaped d300 molding gives the interesting touch leaving drywall panels stand within half inch from the trim near the floor area, around the windows and door casings. D300 Drywall Trim is definitely a very beautiful modern design feature.
