How drywall is made

This question  has been a hot  topic waiting in line for awhile now and has been asked many times at Drywall Pro-Finishing: How drywall is made and what is it? Today we are going to discuss exactly this! Drywall also known as plasterboard, wallboard, or gypsum panel is panel made of calcium sulfate dihydrate (gypsum) typical included with sheets of backer paper that used to construct interior walls and ceilings. Based on the project, foam, insulation, and fiber is added to make it more sturdy. Our professional drywall constructors know what material to use best when beginning a project and while continuing constructing the wall. 


A project in the making…

Over the years, drywall is becoming more and more popular in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) & beyond as a source to create walls because of its reliability, money value and flexibility for the construction of multipurpose rooms. In other words, Drywall is made of layers of plasterboard that is coupled with insulation to create rooms within a property. These drywall panels are manufactured in 48-inch (1.2 m), 54-inch (1.4 m) and 96-inch (2.4 m) wide panels in varying lengths to suit the application, though 48-inch is by far the most common width. Lengths up to 16 feet (4.9 m) are commonly available, though the most common length is 8 feet (2.4 m). Common panel thicknesses are 12-inch (13 mm) and 58-inch (16 mm), with panels also available in 14-inch (6.4 mm), 38-inch (9.5 mm), 3/4-inch (19.0 mm) and 1-inch (25.4 mm) for specific applications.

The tools that you will need to create and fasten a drywall are the following: 

  • Drywall panels.
