Have you ever wondered why everybody uses drywall on their ceiling and walls? Or what came before drywall? If you are old enough, you may remember the widespread use of lath and plaster on homes throughout America. You may also live in a home that has lath and plaster if it’s an older home. Drywall was created as an alternative and is much more commonly installed today.
Drywall can serve a couple of different purposes: as an aesthetic surface when properly prepared, and also as a fire barrier. Drywall is installed to cover up all of your framing, electrical wiring, plumbing, and insulation and to provide a surface that looks appealing. It also can act as a fire barrier during a house or building fire to help keep it contained, so you and your family can get out safely. It is specially created using the proper thickness and materials that are non-flammable to help keep the fire from spreading as fast.
Last week we worked on completing an exterior repainting project on a mall in Seattle. We continued a framing, drywall, and interior painting project on a hospital in Monroe. We also continued working on a multi-tenant drywall installation, taping, texturing, and interior painting project in Marysville.
As summer is nearing its last month, we are booking all last minute exterior projects. If you would like the exterior – of your house or commercial building – repainted for the new school year, let us know. We still have a couple of openings where we could schedule you in, but these spots fill fast!
