Drywall Installation and Damage Repair
Drywall is most commonly used material in for interior walls to fix all kinds of surface defects from small dents to large holes. For example, doorknob damage, battered corners, creeping cracks, nails that go pop, soggy ceilings, inside corner cleanup, large holes, removal of wallpapers, moving furniture, electrical sockets, poor quality, water leaks, leaky roofing systems, rough dealing with doorways. These gypsum boards are fire resistant, durable, and versatile, making it ideal in the construction of walls, wall hangings, ceilings, and other home remodeling work. Occasionally you will see dry walls constructed from vinyl, brick, fabric, wood or paper though plaster-like substance sealed between two sheets of heavy-duty paper and fitted with special drywall screws is most common.
