Drywall (cont., pg. 3)

 

What Your Drywall Contractor Will Do

● When mud is dry, sanding begins.  This should be a one-day job.

 

 

What You Need To Do


● Hire an experienced, licensed, insured, drywall contractor with good references ─ whom you actually called.  Make the hire well in advance of when he will be needed.

● Have your sales rep from either your primary building material supply store, or a drywall specialty store, come to the site and do a take-off.  He will determine the size and quantity of the boards you’ll need.

● Order delivery of the boards at least one day prior to the beginning of hanging.

● If yours is a two-story house, a second-floor window must either be left uninstalled, or the window sashes removed to allow boards to be loaded directly upstairs via boom truck.

It must be a “double-hung” window (both top and bottom section of window slides up and down) to be able to remove the sashes. 

If your windows are single-hung (less expensive than double-hung) you must either leave one second-floor window uninstalled until after boards are loaded upstairs, or buy one double-hung window to be installed upstairs in a room that’s easy to access.

Buying the one double-hung window for upstairs is how I prefer to do it.  Just remember to tell your framer about what you’re doing so he’ll get the right window in the right place.

I don’t advise asking them to carry boards up a flight of stairs.  This question will be answered with silence and blank stares.
