About this deal

Before you apply the tape, submerge it in water and wring out in a swift motion to get rid of excess moisture. You can adjust individual furring strips with shims placed beneath the anchoring screws if necessary.

Before you can whip out the drywall screws, tacking the sheets into place with drywall nails (also known as plasterboard screws can provide extra strength and precision. Measure the distance from a wall corner to the center of a framing member, also recording distances for cutouts and door and window openings. For the final row, trim off the grooved edge to create the correct plank width, then install the planks. This setting has far less shrinkage than the air-dry compounds normally used in drywall, so it only requires one coat. Several builders' books state that thicker drywall reduces sound transmission, but engineering manuals recommend using multiple layers of drywall, sometimes of different thicknesses and glued together, or special types of drywall designed to reduce noise.Alternatively, for a better finish, the entire wall may be given a skim coat, a thin layer (about 1mm or 1⁄ 32in) of finishing compound, to minimize the visual differences between the paper and mudded areas after painting. When covering with drywall or other types of panels, adding a layer of insulation board over a popcorn ceiling helps to stop airflow between the living space and an unheated attic space or roof above. A specific type of Gibraltar board for use in wet conditions (such as bathrooms and kitchens) is known as AquaGib.

Extruded polystyrene foam panels (XPS) are a good substitute offering slightly lower insulating values.If you would like to change your settings or withdraw consent at any time, the link to do so is in our privacy policy accessible from our home page. For example, there are soundproof, moisture-resistant, and fire-resistant versions available for more demanding applications, as well as lightweight varieties that can be as much as half the weight of standard drywall. The issue was resolved in 2011, and now all drywall must be tested for volatile sulfur, and any containing more than ten ppm is unable to be sold in the US. Don't load your spackle knife with too much mud, keep things light and add more if you really need to.
