In the drywall installation process we will use half inch board, ceiling board or 5/8's depending on the task.
When setting the depth of your screw gun, always do it on a piece of dunnage before production starts as opposed to on the wall during production.
Never tack around any fixtures that you will later cut/route out. Do that after.
Nail the edges, screw the field.
In residential construction. putting adhesive on BOTH the framing & the drywall isn't necessary, but it helps.
When dealing with ceilings hieghts that are "odd"(8'3 for example), measure and hang so that your ripper goes in the middle of the wall, and not at the top or bottom.
Oh, when cutting cementboard..WHERE A MASK!!
Drywall is a finishing material for the walls and ceiling of your house. It is made up of mildew and fire resistant material like gypsum that is sandwiched between two sheets of fiberglass mats. The concept involves that when this drywall has dried (since the materials are semi solid), it becomes hard enough to be used as a building material. It has more advantages than drawbacks – some of it being, it is inexpensive, readily available and easy to install. A do-it-yourself installation, with proper guidance, is not so hard to follow and makes the deal all the more inexpensive. You just need to plan properly and buy the right items required for the installation. Installing a new drywall is easier than replacing an older one because an older one has to be uninstalled first followed by its repairs. This generally requires professional help. So if it's a new drywall and you want to do it yourself, here are some tips and ideas that might help you install the drywall with precision!
