Why Hire Handyman Connection For Drywall Installation?

Why Hire Handyman Connection For Drywall Installation_

Although drywall is much easier to install and repair than plaster, it’s easy to damage due to its fragile structure. Television DIY shows make drywall tasks look straightforward and hassle-free, but the reality is sheetrock jobs are challenging and require professional assistance. If you need drywall services in Victoria, you can depend on Handyman Connection for installations, repairs, texture matching and wallpaper removal. Our professionals have the experience to install your drywall quickly and efficiently. Here are some of the reasons why sheetrock jobs are best handled by professional contractors.

Hanging Drywall is Challenging Work

Some home repairs or DIY renovation projects can be handled by one person, but hanging drywall is not one of them. Even the smaller 4’x8’ sheets are cumbersome and require two people for level hanging. Ceiling sheets are nearly impossible to hang without a helper and need steady pressure while screwing the board to the studs. You can purchase sheets as long as 16’ to minimize gaps and conserve mud and tape, but transporting the sheetrock safely and installing the hefty boards requires skilled installers.

Professionals Conserve Their Materials

Hiring Handyman Connection can save you money on installation costs. Without professional help, solo installers often damage the sheets, use the incorrect amount of mud or struggle to match the texture of a repair with an existing wall. Our installers work carefully and effectively, but they keep your costs down by conserving materials and minimizing damage to the sheetrock.

Working Around Electrical Wires and Outlets Requires Precision

Ripping out damaged drywall and working around electrical wires and outlets is a tricky operation. Cutting into a wire can damage your home and cause severe injuries. Our team knows how to remove sheets without disturbing internal wires and position the wires during sheetrock installations. Making precise cuts for outlets, light fixtures and unique structural problems requires precision and skill.

Drywall Installers Have Specialized Tools

Although you might have a few tools for installing drywall in your garage or workshop, professional installers have top-not equipment and tools for performing seamless installations. Some of the tools and equipment required for installation and repairs include:

  • Drywall Lift
  • T-square
  • Aviation clippers
  • Scaffolding
  • Ladders
  • Drywall saw
  • Rotary saw
  • Cordless drill
  • Utility Knife
  • Hammer

Drywall technicians also use equipment such as drop cloths, plastic sheeting for furniture and dust-control vacuums to keep your home clean.

Experienced Installers Work Quickly and Accurately

If you plan on installing new sheetrock in your double car garage or workshop, it may take a few days, depending on the structure’s size and how many helpers you have. Skilled installers can install several sheets in an hour with proper taping and mudding lines that require less sanding and modifications. Determining the right consistency of the mud and how much to apply is challenging. If you apply too much mud, you spend a considerable period sanding out the bulges to keep the surface level for painting. Using too little mud can cause dips and cracking by the tape line.

Skilled installers are artists with drywall, and they’ll make a repaired wall or new installation look like they belong in a showroom. Any holes or tears in existing walls can be easily repaired and re-painted to match the colour scheme.

Drywall Work Creates a Mess

Drywall work requires adequate ventilation and safety equipment to install. Cutting and drilling often produce a cloud of white dust that is not healthy to inhale, and mixing drywall mud and slapping it on walls is a messy activity. Spare yourself the mess and rely on the experts.
