Anchorage Drywall

Drywall is among our specialties. We check the condition of your walls and determine the cause of its deterioration. After we diagnose the cause of the problem, you are given options on how to improve the structure of your walls. We make sure that your walls are in their top condition inside and out. Your walls would not only look attractive on the outside, but they would remain strong from potential breakage on the inside.

What is Drywall?

Drywall (also known as plasterboard, wallboard, gypsum board) is a panel made of gypsum plaster pressed between two thick sheets of paper. It is used to make interior walls and ceilings. Drywall construction became prevalent as a speedier alternative to traditional lath and plaster.

A wallboard panel consists of a layer of gypsum plaster sandwiched between two layers of paper. The raw gypsum is heated to drive off the water then slightly re-hydrated to produce the hemihydrate of calcium sulfate. The plaster is mixed with fiber (typically paper and/or fiberglass), plasticizer, foaming agent, finely ground gypsum crystal as an accelerator, EDTA, starch or other chelate as a retarder, various additives that may decrease mildew and increase fire resistance (fiberglass or vermiculite), wax emulsion or silanes for lower water absorption. The board is then formed by sandwiching a core of the wet mixture between two sheets of heavy paper or fiberglass mats. When the core sets it is then dried in a large drying chamber, and the sandwich becomes rigid and strong enough for use as a building material.
