Here’s what they recommend doing before the drywall experts arrive: 

  • Schedule an Inspection: If you’re building a home or an addition to your existing living space, you likely have new electric wiring, plumbing, HVAC equipment, or ductwork. To ensure your project adheres to local building regulations, call in the appropriate professional to inspect any systems that will be located behind your new wall.
  • drywall installationCalculate Drywall Dimensions: How much drywall will you be installing? Whether you’re replacing a wall or patching a hole, note the dimensions and calculate the required square footage. You’ll also need to decide what type and thickness of drywall you’ll need. If you’re unfamiliar with the varieties, your local drywall company can advise you.
  • Set the Temperature: Temperature and humidity greatly affect the joint compound involved in drywall installation. To ensure it dries and sets properly, set the temperature of the room so it’s cooler than 55 degrees. The room needs to stay at this temperature for at least two days prior to your installation. Keep the curtains drawn, too, especially during summer.
