HOW TO HANG SHEETROCK/DRYWALL

Drywall is panels of pressed gypsum plaster between heavy paper. Drywall is also known as plasterboard, wallboard and gypsum board. Some people call it “Sheetrock,” but Sheetrock a registered trademark of the company that produces drywall.

Drywall comes in three basic thicknesses:

  • 5/8 inch is heaviest and the most soundproof

  • 3/8 inch is best to cover existing walls

  • 1/4 inch is the choice for curved walls and arches.

When hanging drywall, the ultimate goal is to create the fewest number of seams possible. This means working with the largest drywall panels and pieces you can handle safely.

  • Hang the Drywall

  • Tape Drywall

  • Joint Compound

    • First Coast

    • Second Coat
