Drywall Installation

A brief history of drywall

First invented in 1916 by the American Gypsum Corporation, drywall was intended to function with dual purpose: to compete with, and provide walling material other than the much more costly plaster of the day, and to help prevent house fires. In fact, the product when first introduced onto the market was helped along by its tagline of being “The Poor Man's Answer to Plaster Walls”.

Since those days, drywall has risen up and taken the market for walling materials, crowding out the old favorites of plaster and luxurious wooden paneling. These new dry-walled surfaces could be painted multiple times, allowing for versatility, and freedom from expensive and difficult to handle wallpaper. Eventually, drywall and a coat of paint would be the main way of decorating walls, as it is today.

The benefits of going with the professionals

Despite being a fairly straightforward process, it doesn’t appear outwardly to be too difficult of a task. However, it is recommended that you hire a professional for drywall hanging. There are a few reasons why it’s best to go with the professionals, such as:

  • Years of experience
  • Knowledge of how to protect electrical and plumbing
  • Contractors have insurance if anything goes wrong

These trained professionals can manage the inner workings of your home, reducing risk of damage and leaving you with a polished finished space, ready to be painted and decorated.

And all you have to do is sit back and let the experts take care of it all!
