This is the main living area from a recent drywall addition. It was a 74 sheet addition and repair. The repair work was done upstairs (photos below). In the living room, 5/8″ drywall was hung on the ceilings for sound control. On the butt joints, rock splicers were used to keep the joints as flat and invisible as possible. We also used a new solvent based glue which is manufactured to reduce nail/screw pops by a significant percentage.

Mainline Addition – December 2011

Here’s a new project we’re in the midst of. You can see start (drywall hanging & finishing) all the way to prime & ready for paint — we’re currently wrapping up the painting.

Some notes on how we approach a job.

  • Drywall is hung with adhesive. This keeps screw & nail pops to a minimum.
  • Drywall is used in longest lengths available for each room. This means less joints and less stress on the existing joints.
  • We use only Benjamin Moore primers and Paints. We find that they provide superior coating to all other paints. No-VOC Paints are available from Benjamin Moore for those interested.
