Our Miami drywall repair team will handle any type of drywall repair that your home needs. Some of the drywall repair services we offer are:
What does ‘finishing’ mean when it comes to drywall? This generally refers to whether or not the product is ready to be painted or glossed. When an unfinished board is installed, then it will have tape and joint compound applied. However, the term ‘unfinished’ tells you that no paint has been applied.
What exactly does ‘taping and mudding’ mean? First, taping is when the gaps between sheets are taped up. Second, mudding is when we apply the joint compound (mud) is to cover the tape and smooth it out. This allows it to seem as if it were never there. Commonly, more than one coat of mudding is applied to create the desired smoothness.
What are the available types and thicknesses of sheet rock? Sheet rock comes in various types, such as, fire-resistant, moisture resistant, and toxic resistant. The sheets are usually 4’ x 8’ and are available in thicknesses from ⅜” to ½”.
Why do I need primer before I can paint? Paint, on it’s own, does not adhere very well to drywall. Therefore, we apply a coat of primer over the paper and the mud. This allows the paint to have complete, even coverage on your wall.
Moisture drywall is most commonly used for high-moisture areas like kitchens or bathrooms. You will also hear this referred to as Greenboard. The only difference from standard wallboard is that the paper backing has a much higher moisture resistance than what is used for standard drywall.
Fire resistant drywall is the most common type of board we install. Special types of fibers and other such fire-resistant materials are added to the core of the board. This creates more fire-protection than your standard sheetrock. Generally, you will see this type of board behind furnaces, around fireplace mantels. Also, it is found behind pretty much all major electrical or gas appliances in your home.
Mold resistant drywall repels mold as much as possible. However, it does not necessarily make it altogether impossible for mold to develop. It just lessens the chances of it happening. This is very important to install in any high moist areas of your home or business.
