What does ‘finishing’ mean when it comes to drywall?
This generally refers to whether or not the the product is ready to be painted or glossed. When an unfinished board has been installed, it will have been taped and the joint compound will be applied but the term ‘unfinished’ tells you that no paint has been applied.
What exactly does ‘taping and mudding’ mean?
Taping is when the gaps between sheets are taped up, then mudding is when the joint compound (mud) is applied to cover the tape and smooth it out 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?
Sheetrock can come in various types such as fire-resistant, moisture resistant, and toxic resistant. The sheets are usually 4’ x 8’ and can be purchased in thicknesses from 1/4” to 3/4”. You can get longer sheets of drywall that are 16’ long to lessen butt joints.
Why do I need primer before I can paint?
Paint on its own does not adhere very well straight to drywall. A coat of primer needs to be applied over the paper and the mud in order for the paint to have complete, even coverage on your wall.
Drywall for Wet Areas
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 used for these types of boards has a much higher moisture resistance than what is used for standard drywall.
Fire Code Drywall
Fire resistant drywall is the most common type of board you will see installed. Special types of fibers and other such fire-resistant materials are added to the core of the board in order to create more fire-protection than your standard sheetrock. You will generally see this type of board installed behind furnaces, around fireplace mantels, and behind pretty much all major electrical or gas appliances in your home.
Mold Proof Drywall
Mold resistant drywall is designed to repel mold as much as possible, but it does not necessarily make it altogether impossible for mold to develop, just lessens the chances of it happening. This is very important to install in any high moist areas of your home or business.
