Atlanta Drywall Installation and Repair

Very few businesses in America are constructed without the application of drywall because it has many benefits to both builder and business owner. Drywall became popular in the early to mid 1900s because it was much faster to install than plaster; while plaster would take more than a week to put up and dry properly, drywall can be put up in a day or two, but is also easy enough to install that a moderately experienced contractor can do it with success. Atlanta Drywall panels are manufactured in specific widths (48 inches and 54 inches) and varying lengths based on the individual project, and have a standard thickness based on the type of building the drywall is used in. Some of the thicker drywall types are better at reducing sound transmission between rooms, which is a highly desirable feature in businesses.

There are several different levels of finished drywall that you might see in your commercial property, depending on what you plan on doing with each area. Level 0 is completely unfinished and is what you might see if you are building a room but haven’t made decor decisions yet, while Level 5 is completely finished with multiple coats of joint compound to seal angles and joints and is completely smooth and ready for a finishing coat of paint. Most office walls are at Level 4, in which the walls should be coated with a primer prior to painting. Professionals can give your commercial property any level of drywall you desire, whether you’re more interested in finishing your room to your exact specifications yourself or you want a completely smooth, gloss surface to work with.

One of the best benefits of using Atlanta drywall as a room divider in offices is drywall is an excellent flame and heat retardant. Because one of the ingredients in drywall is essentially crystallized water, heat transfer is halted from one room to another as the water vaporizes. Several layers of drywall can be added to increase fire resistance (as well as increasing the sound barrier), and one type of drywall (Type X) has glass fibers added to it to further increase fire resistance.
