When it comes to drywall installation, there are a few things you need to keep in mind if you want it done quickly and efficiently. Drywall mistakes can become expensive to repair later on. Envy Home Services, a trusted name among sunroom addition contractors, explains some of the common drywall mistakes to avoid:
Joints Are Too Tight
Tightening your drywall joints might seem like a good thing, but this can risk breaking the drywall unexpectedly. Tight joints prevent the expansion and contraction of the framing members. They can crack the drywall joints that are too tight. There’s no other fix for it but a full replacement when it’s already cracked. This can be prevented by following a guide or working with a trusted contractor who can tighten the joints properly.
Not Marking Framing Locations
Kitchen and bathroom renovation companies know that it’s important to mark the location of the framing members before covering them with drywall. Otherwise, this will make it difficult to place the screws accurately. To ensure an accurate screw placement, use the marks as a guide to drawing a light pencil line across the sheet. This should help you place the screws quickly and with no mistakes!
Screws Are Too Deep
If you accidentally puncture the drywall paper, don’t remove it and drive another screw near it instead. Make sure to not put in the screw too deeply. This will break the surface of the wallboard’s paper face. This can also cause the screw to lose its holding power and render it useless. A proper way of putting in the screws involves making precise turns, or you can use a special drill attachment to regulate the screw’s depth.
