Sheetrock Contractors In Your Area

Drywall is a wall covering that is made by compressing gypsum plaster to create large rigid sheets for covering large sections of studded wall. Its benefits include being able to cover large surfaces with a single sheet, and being able to repair it easily if needed. It has become the standard in home building, and although there are alternatives being developed now, as well as alternatives which used to be the standard for wall covering, drywall is still the most affordable option for adding value to the home for minimal cost.

Drywall Uses

The uses for drywall are virtually unlimited so long as your application requires the need for a flat, rigid, and smooth surface. It can be cut to various dimensions and can be purchased in different sizes with the most common being 4 ft x 8 ft. Thickness of the sheets can also vary, but the most common thicknesses being mass produced are between 3/8 inch and 1/2 inch. Thicker sheets may be used in situations where the screws or nails used for fastening may be farther apart due to the distance between studs.

One of the greatest benefits of drywall is that its seams can become virtually invisible with the work of a talented drywall contractor. Drywall mud is used to cover the seams, and later sanded and smoothed by the contractor, much the same as bondo work in auto body repair. Once the walls are covered and visually seamless, drywall can be primed and painted over and over again. Different types of drywall can be purchased for moisture resistance, fire resistance, and abuse resistance.

Cost of Installation

The average cost per square foot is approximately $1.50, and the average cost of installing each panel fluctuates between $40 and $60, depending on location. Although it may seem at first glance that drywall is more expensive, it is actually the most cost effective wall covering available. While it may be just as expensive or even a little more expensive to install after hiring a contractor for initial installation, the difference in price will eventually tip in the favor of drywall, because of the fact that for most people, it only has to be done once. In addition, the fact that the home has drywall will also make it more attractive to buyers should you ever choose to sell. You never have to change it to a more up to date wall covering, and it is easy and inexpensive to repair.


"Mr Choi found the leak in my ceiling. Since it involved drywall repair it took a couple of visits. He is knowledgable, friendly, and professional. His drywall finisher was prompt, clean, and efficient. Thumbs up!!"

"Bret responded quickly to my request for a quote and came by the next day to view the project. He and his helper finished all the drywall to paint ready, installed the tile tub surround to ceiling height, and reinstalled the floor tile over two days. He was very professional, answered all questions, removed all debris, and left the work area clean and tidy. I will definitely recommend him to others and keep him in mind for future projects."

"Easy payment method. Casey is super helpful and responsive. Crew cleaned up work area each night so it was still usable space. They also did my backsplash in the kitchen. Only one minor complaint is that after putting face plates back on in kitchen my sink disposal wonâ t turn on. Found it was the wire behind faceplate came loose. Easy fix."

"These guys are exceptional. A little pricey, but that's not unusual for this area. My favorite part is the owners are AMAZING - very attentive, quickly respond to emails, very accommodating, and routinely show up to check out the job and progress (which was RARE in my past experiences with other companies). I highly recommend these guys. They did two bathrooms and even laid hard wood floor in our master bedroom for us! Hope to use them again."
