What Exactly Is Drywall?
Drywall is also known as plaster board, wall board or gypsum board. It’s used in a lot of modern construction to form internal walls. It’s made up of large sheets of gypsum, which have a type of paper backing on each side, The paper on one side is intended to be facing outwards, and can be prepared and painted or papered as you wish. If you have a modern home or office, the chances are it has drywall in it.
What Sort Of Damage Might I Find In Drywall?
If you’ve spotted any sort of damage in your drywall, or if you’re ready to redecorate and notice cracking, getting interior drywall professionals in to check it out is a good move. Drywall cracks often appear around stress points such as doors and windows, and you may also find that nails start to pop out of the wall, joint tape splits or bubbles, or dents appear through normal wear and tear. And of course, there are also times when accidental damage can be an issue. Maybe you’ve hit the drywall with a sofa when switching your furniture around, or that game of ball indoors caused some unexpected consequences. Don’t worry. We’ve seen it all before, and we can help.
