What Does a Drywall Contractor Do?
Many homeowners are surprised to learn that there are specific drywall contractors that only specialize in drywall construction and repair. It’s important to hire a drywall contractor for your projects that involve drywall because a sturdy and professionally finished wall is important for the aesthetic and safety of your home.
At OC Handycrew, our drywall contractors have years of experience in repairing, replacing, and constructing drywall and provide quality work that looks great in our clients’ homes for years to come. Here is a rundown of exactly what a drywall contractor can do for you once hired.
As soon as an OC Handycrew drywall contractor is hired for a job, he or she will assess the work and offer the client an accurate estimate and timeline to completion. The first step in the drywall process is to measure extensively.
With accurate measurements, the drywall contractor will frame the wall out using wood or metal studs, and cut a sheet of drywall that will perfectly fit the space that’s been framed. The drywall contractor pays close attention to any pipes or mechanical equipment in the walls and cuts the proper holes in the drywall to accommodate these.
The drywall is hung into place by fastening to the studs on the wall. Once it’s hung, the drywall contractor will focus on finishing the wall so it looks uniform. This is done through the finishing process, where the drywall contractor will use tape, mudding, and sanding on the wall. The seams are usually filled in using spackle or a joint compound as needed.
An OC Handycrew drywall contractor will take his or her time on the finishing process because this is what primes the wall for painting. A delicate and attentive finishing process leaves the wall smooth and uniform with its surrounding walls. Once the drywall portion is painted to match the rest of the walls, it looks no different and no one should be able to tell it’s been worked on at all.
