What You Need to Know about Drywall before You Try Plastering on Your Own
There are different drywall materials used for various purposes when plastering a house. These differences in materials come from the contents and size of the plastering sheets. Here are some of the things you need to know in order to be able to perform a quality drywall installation:
- The standard gypsum plastering board is 5/8” thick, and is one of the most popular drywall materials used in the country. It’s a long, stiff board that is hard enough to cover any framing imperfections. This is very helpful because making the framing absolutely perfect is pretty hard and can take you a lot of time.
- Different lighting has different properties. Sometimes it can reveal wall imperfections, defects and uneven areas. That’s why you need to be careful about how and where you place the lighting.
- The alignment of furniture, decoration and doors and windows inside a home is also very important. You need to consider the results when you place the drywall because the space will become smaller. You need to make sure everything stays aligned after the plastering. It can be a little confusing for people who are not familiar with the process.
- When installing drywall, it is essential that you make sure that the plastered walls are completely flat and don’t have any imperfections. Otherwise, if you place a cupboard or anything flat in front of an uneven wall, the defects will most likely become clearly visible.
- Last but not least, you need to install the doors before the plastering, and you need to do a good job too. The reason for that is because if the doors are secured to the plastering, they will be easy to break through. Securing them to the wall; however, makes sure the door will stand a break-in attempt.
