About Our Norfolk County Drywall Installations
When hiring Mr. Handyman for new drywall installation, Norfolk County residents will get the full service from start to finish. We care about your complete satisfaction and always go above and beyond to meet your needs and increase your indoor living comfort.
DRYWALL REPAIR VS. NEW DRYWALL INSTALLATION | NORFOLK COUNTY
Though Mr. Handyman offers both repairs and installation, it requires a full inspection to determine which option works best for your long-term needs. Often, homeowners are conflicted about repairs vs. new installations. You may be able to get away with small repair services unless you are experiencing other issues or are planning a home remodeling project. Larger projects like that may involve the installation of new cabinets and wall insulation. If that is the case, you’ll be expecting wall demolition, followed by new drywall installation. Norfolk County homeowners will get peace of mind knowing that a new set of walls will bring them long-term results and comfort.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM NORFOLK COUNTY DRYWALL INSTALLATION
When you hire our Norfolk County drywall installation services, expect our experienced team to bring the necessary knowledge, expertise, and equipment to carefully assess your space. New homes that are awaiting interior construction may already have wall insulation and wall studs in place. If not, your Norfolk County drywall installation team will get it done. Other situations require prior demolition and further inspections.
During our formal consultation, we will discuss your needs and answer any questions you may have for our Norfolk County drywall installer. Every situation is different; therefore, it is important to get all the details right.
In addition to drywall installation, Norfolk County homeowners can also rely on us to take care of new ceiling installations, during which we’ll use a drywall lift to assist us with the process.
The installation service itself will be comprehensive, involving a lot of cutting, mudding, taping, and more mudding. Since joint compound needs time to dry, it can take several days to complete your Norfolk County drywall installation project. Often, two to three coats of compound are needed, followed by sanding the edges.
Many homeowners have additional service requests that include painting and wall texturing, which we are happy to do. Expect our technicians to provide you with a smooth finish!

FAQs About Norfolk County Drywall Installation
IS DRYWALL THE SAME AS SHEETROCK INSTALLATION?
It is essentially the same, yes. Sheetrock refers to a specific brand, whereas drywall is a broader term that is often described as a gypsum board or gypsum panel. Sheetrock became a leading term when the United States Gypsum Corporation bought the Sackett Plaster Board Company in 1917.
WHAT DO I NEED FOR DIY DRYWALL INSTALLATION?
Norfolk County homeowners who are DIY professionals will always need a partner to give them a hand. Unfortunately, installing drywall panels is not a walk in the park. Even the standard thickness of 1/2 inch can be too heavy for one person to handle. So be sure to have an experienced helper and a building permit.
Essential items you’ll need for the project include:
- New drywall sheets
- Joint compound
- Drywall screws and nails
- Drywall tape, paper tape
- Nails, screw heads
- Utility knife, 6-inch drywall knife
- Putty knife
- Tape measure
- Dust mask
- Safety goggles
Note: Unfortunately, a lot of our Norfolk County drywall installation requests are due to improper DIY installation or homeowners who had hired non-certified contractors for the job. When hiring the experts at Mr. Handyman, you’ll get the guarantee that we’ll get the job done right the first time. Look forward to long-term benefits that include increased comfort and energy efficiency.
WHAT IS A BACKER BOARD?
A backer board (also known as a cement board) is a type of drywall that is waxed on the surface for moisture resistance. Typically, they are used behind shower tile walls to provide added protection from water damage. When you hire Mr. Handyman for tile installation services in the bathroom, you will see them use backer boards.
HOW MUCH DOES NORFOLK COUNTY DRYWALL INSTALLATION COST?
Mr. Handyman only offers a transparent upfront pricing system based on the project type. In this case, we’ll arrange an in-home consultation and inspection, during which we’ll inspect your current walls and insulation. Then we’ll take the required measurements in square feet and prepare a more detailed cost estimate. Labor cost is not calculated per hour. We prefer the upfront pricing system to ensure there are no hidden charges.
Feel free to give us a call to discuss your type of project, and we may be able to give you a price range if you need a general or average cost estimate.
