It’s not just about getting the drywall up, but doing it with excellence and precision. This affects the rest of the work to follow, and will end up saving you time and money when done correctly. That’s why you should trust your drywall installation to the experts at Geba Interiors. With over 50 years of combined drywall installation experience, we know the tricks of the trade, work quickly, and work accurately ensuring the success of your entire commercial, industrial or residential project.
Our project management and site supervision team is hands-on, present, and detail-oriented to ensure projects stay on track and are delivered with unparalleled quality, precision and attention to detail.
While on site an accurate site measurement will be provided, this will help ensure less waste, on road to Geba’s advanced green initiatives. After each step is completed, the site supervisor or project manager will inspect the quality of work before starting the next phase. When the project is finished, they are the last set of eyes on site. They will do a final inspection using our detailed checklist, to ensure all work has been done to our standards, not just industry standards. No project is complete until quality control establishes that the customer is satisfied with the finished product.
Because Geba is a full service framing, drywall, and ceiling company, we understand the project start to finish. This allows us to be more efficient at each step, including understanding proper drywall installation to make best use of the intricate framing details, and facilitate mudding, taping and future finishing efforts.
Speed and Accuracy
Equipped with the right tools and the right people, our drywall projects go quickly and quality is never sacrificed. Drywall installation is tedious and is a necessary step in the overall construction project. The faster it gets done and the better the job performed, the more smoothly goes the whole project.
Gypsum (drywall = gypsum board), called gypsos by the ancient Greeks, is one of the most useful minerals known to man. In its pure form it is white, but impurities often give it colors like gray, brown, pink, or black.
Drywall screws have deeper threads than regular screws, which prevents them from dislodging easily from the drywall. They are made of steel and require a power screwdriver to drill them into the drywall.
Even though it has a very flat and hard appearance, drywall is actually BENDABLE. Good drywall installers know proper techniques to bend drywall and create beautiful curved walls, ceilings and other features.
The easiest way to facilitate the bending process of the drywall sheets is to lay them on a concrete floor (such as the garage floor) and to wet them with a roller. In addition, if the drywall still doesn’t want to bend, a sponge may be used to facilitate the process. Too much water could easily damage the boards, so professional help is recommended, applying wetness gradually to the inside face of the curve.
If the radius is very tight, two layers of 1/4” drywall can be used as it is very flexible, or a method known as “scoring” could be used. Cutting the paper layer on one side of the sheet allows it to bend it easily, while the other layer of paper on the other side holds the sheet together.
