Why Choose Mr. Handyman for Lehi Drywall Installation?

There is a lot of precision that goes into the process, including angles, pitch, and alignment. DIY professionals will also need to possess the right tools and supplies, and while they can be procured easily, your walls aren’t something homeowners want to botch.

Aside from the paint that goes on top of it, it’s the outermost visible element of your home’s walls. Lumps, gaps, and sagging are possible when the service is done improperly, and you might be surprised to find that inexperienced drywall companies don’t always use the right tools or possess the right knowledge.

FAQs About Lehi Drywall Installation and Replacement

Is drywall easy to install?

There are varying degrees of drywall installation. If you’re talking about drywall replacement, you’ll likely be looking at a drywall repair job that involves a smaller area of work. Replacing the entire thing is typically easier than a new installation—unless the area you are replacing is your entire home. Either way, the best way to find out what type of service you need is to call our valued team and schedule an inspection. We’ll assess your current sheetrock or the area that needs it. Rather than taking on this tricky task yourself, Lehi homeowners can rely on us to alleviate all of the worry and stress of botching a job. Installing drywall takes skill and precision within proper repair methods, so it’s a job that’s better left to experienced professionals.

What are the common drywall installation mistakes?

So you’ve decided to do a DIY installation. Maybe you’ve hired a drywall contractor without a great reputation for the sake of an extremely low price. Whatever reason you’re concerned about the common mistakes one can make while installing drywall, you should know there are plenty that can be made. That’s why a service such as this one requires attention to detail and a deep understanding of how installation works. You should also make sure whoever is replacing your sheetrock knows how to check for electrical and plumbing lines to avoid a serious catastrophe. Some common mistakes rookie repairmen run into include:

  • Joints that were fastened too tight
  • Fastening joints before trimming
  • Using too many joints
  • Improper framing locations
  • Tapered edges
  • Putting your joints next to doors or windows
  • Driving the screws too deep
  • Cutting into electrical or plumbing lines
  • Uneven texture

Should drywall be nailed or screwed?

There are actually a few different ways to securely attach drywall. Two of them are nails and screws. But don’t pull out your toolbox just yet. Wood nails and wood screws are not the right types for the job. You’ll need to procure the right type of piece to install your material; however, knowing when to use nails versus screws is an important part of a successful job. Read on for more information about the difference between the two.

Drywall Screws

Drywall screws will give a stronger hold. They are also more expensive. Think about the size of the project before choosing which type to work with. Screws should be used for ceilings or when attaching drywall to metal studs and frames. There are four types of drywall screws, and you’ll need to know the difference between them to make sure you’re using them properly

  • Self-drilling: These pan-head screws can be used with metal studs and frames
  • Trim-head: These attach wood trim over drywall
  • Coarse: Use this type to attach drywall boards to larger studs
  • Fine: For installing drywall on top of metal studs

Drywall Nails

The less expensive option, but not every case will call for a nail. You cannot use these nails on ceilings, or else you could experience sagging. Use these for wall installations. You’ll encounter three types of drywall nails to use in your project:

  • Cupped head nails: These nails have a rounded head and can countersink for a smoother end result
  • Cement coated: With a flush shank coated with resin, these are for jobs that require a stronger hold
  • Basic drywall nails: Your everyday specialized nail with a barbed shank. They have excellent staying power.

Pro tip: When using drywall nails, be sure to sink them below the surface, then cover them with compound or joint tape. Otherwise, you run the risk of your nails being visible after painting. As you can see, there are many things to think about when choosing to install your own sheetrock. To avoid fussing over whether or not you used the right nail or screw, we recommend giving our knowledgeable team a call.

How much does drywall replacement in Lehi cost?

Drywall replacement differs greatly in cost from installation. However, both of these jobs can range in price dramatically depending on the size and complexity of the project. It’s almost impossible to give a ballpark figure for how much your installation or replacement will cost, and with all types of drywall repairs, the best way to find out how much your unique project will cost is to book a no-obligation inspection with one of our experienced handymen. We’ll listen closely as you walk us through exactly what needs to be done, and we’ll be transparent about all the associated costs of the job. If you decide to hire us, the quote we give you is what you’ll pay.
