If you are tackling a major home renovation, kitchen remodel or finally finishing your basement, you should hire a professional drywall contractor like Glacier Drywall Systems Inc. in Calgary. Drywall installation is a very difficult DIY project and is best left to the pros. Experienced drywall contractors will have the expertise and experience to get the job done efficiently and with beautiful results.
DIY Drywall Disasters
There is a lot involved with drywall installation including measuring and cutting the drywall, properly hanging it, taping, mudding, sanding and finally painting it.
First of all, you have to purchase the drywall from the building supply store and somehow manage to transport these massive, awkward slabs home without them getting wet or damaged. Don’t forget to pick up the right tape, mud and specialized tools too. Then you have to measure all of your walls and ceilings and cut the drywall, without breaking it and wasting material. Now you have to have someone, or a couple of people, hold up the drywall so you can pin it to the framing. That’s the easy part.
Now it’s time for every do-it-yourselfers nightmare: taping, mudding and sanding the seams. It is very difficult to learn how to mud and tape drywall. Applying the right amount of mud, giving it enough time to dry and then sanding it down to a smooth finish requires a lot of skill. Skill that comes with experience. Not only do you have to do that once, but multiple times waiting a day for the newly applied mud to dry between each application.
One mistake and you can have noticeable seams and wavy looking walls. The whole project can look like a disaster.
