JCE Painting's drywall experience is vast. We have done everything from demo out entire suites because of water damage or hang mud and texture. We have completed rooms from the stud; as far as to knock down walls and make the joints disappear.
What is drywall?
Drywall is a panel made of calcium sulfate dihydrate, with or without additives, typically extruded between thick sheets of facer and backer paper, used in the construction of interior walls and ceilings.
There are four different types of drywall and each one is tailored to a specific type of project.
1. Regular Drywall.
It’s the least expensive drywall and is available in multiple different sizes and thicknesses.
2. Mold Resistant Drywall.
This type of drywall has been becoming more and more popular and is replacing standard drywall as the building material of choice. It’s covered with fiberglass instead of paper. This gives it resistance to mold and mildew. This kind of drywall is easy to work with but extra safety precautions need to be used during installation because of the fiberglass.
3. Moisture Resistant.
Moisture resistant drywall is a little pricey. It has a green covering that makes it water resistant but not waterproof. It’s a good choice for bathrooms, basements, kitchens, and laundry rooms
4. Fire resistant, or Type X.
This type of drywall is often used in layers to get a higher fire rating and is required by some building codes. It’s made with non-combustible fibers and has to pass strict tests to achieve a Type X Rating.
