Drywall partitioning is one of the most common building materials of our time. Lately the amount of drywall installation has skyrocketed due to its use in the construction of homes and offices. Drywall was shown to be a much more effective material than traditional building methods.

Just because drywall installation is straightforward, does not mean it is simple. Though it could be a DIY project and is much less involved than, say, laying down a hardwood floor, it requires a seasoned experienced hand to do it well. The finishing, especially, can be a difficult task for for the inexperienced.

Drywall (or gypsum board), one of the most common building materials of our time, hasn't always been as popular as it is now. When it was first invented nearly 100 years ago (1916, to be exact), drywall was thought to be an inferior and undesirable product. However, since the mid 1950s, the amount of drywall installation has skyrocketed due to its use in the construction and alteration of homes and offices.

Drywall traditionally consists of a mixture of gypsum plaster that is sandwiched in between two pieces of heavy paper while it is still wet. It is allowed to cure and is then cut into boards of a manageable length. Working with plaster that is already dry and in the form of a board is far easier than working with plaster when it is wet. Drywall installation literally cuts weeks off the time it would take to complete a project using the lath-and-plaster method that came before it.

The additives to the gypsum plaster and the type of paper used can both vary depending on the particular job the board is meant for. Drywall installation in very moist areas, for example, benefits from having moisture and mildew repellants added to the plaster that will become its core. For an area that could get particularly warm or cold, the covering of certain types of gypsum board is made of fiberglass instead of paper to increase its insulating properties.

EPJS excels in the field of alterations using drywall partitioning, with an excellent track record of good workmanship and client satisfaction.

Steps in the construction of Drywalls :

  • The first step in achieving a well built drywall wall is the framing or carpentry that happens before installing the drywall.
  • The second step is the drywall installation, which includes securing the drywall to the framing and installing metal cornerbeads to sharpen aesthetics.
  • The third stage is drywall taping and mudding, which includes the application of plaster and tape on all gaps or imperfections in the wall or ceiling surface.
  • The forth and final stage is the sanding and finishing step.

EPJS has been contracted by large and small clients, Government Departments, Private Contractors and Developers, Small Businesses to Private Home owners.
