Interior Drywall with Johnson Exteriors

Our name may say “Exteriors,” but we also offer interior services such as painting and drywall installation and repair! When it comes to drywall, we can help ensure your interior walls have a smooth, seamless appearance with no sagging or bulges.

Some drywall repairs can be handled on your own, but the more extensive repairs require more experienced attention. When it comes to installing entire walls, hiring one of our teams can save you a lot of time, blood, sweat, and tears. Our experts can help walk you through the entire process, from choosing the right drywall for your build to project completion.

Drywall Options

Drywall is the most common wall and ceiling material in modern builds, but few people realize just how many options they may face when choosing what type of drywall they need. Drywall comes in sheets of varying sizes and thicknesses; in some builds, they will be installed vertically, others horizontally. You will also need to know the plans for how you will cover the sheets, as that affects whether you want a square-edged or taper-edged sheet.

Different drywalls have different resistances and uses as well, based on how they were made. Options include:

  • Foil-backed

    • Good for Cold Climates
    • Not very moisture resistant
  • Moisture-resistant

    • Used for bathrooms and kitchens
    • Core filled with waterproofing materials
  • Fire-resistant

    • Best for integral garage ceilings, stairwells, corridors
  • Abuse-resistant

    • Best for garages
    • Thicker than standard drywall
  • Soundproof

    • Best for walls and ceilings in apartments and condos
  • Cement Board

    • Often used as subfloor beneath ceramic tiles
    • Not technically drywall, but similar usage

When you work with Johnson Exteriors, our professionals will help you understand the pros and cons of each type and help you choose what will work best for your home.

Install vs Repair

Our teams are trained to handle installs, but they also handle a myriad of drywall repairs. They’ve tackled cracks from settling, holes from doorknobs, wear & tear, moisture damage, pest damage, drywall anchor holes, and any damaged caused by kids or darts. These can often be fixed by patches instead of replacing an entire sheet.

If your drywall appears damaged, give us a call! We’ll send someone over to inspect the damage and see how extensive the damage is. We’ll let you know if you can get away with a repair instead of replacing the sheet.

Go Pro or DIY?

A lot of home improvement stores sell drywall kits and supplies for projects and patching. If you decide to tackle a project on your own, be sure to look up reviews— some work better than others. So how do you know when a project can be handled DIY or if you should call a pro?

It’s a judgment call. You need to know your own capabilities as well as the extent of the project. The smaller patch and repair jobs are simple, but larger patches can leave lumps in your wall if they aren’t dealt with properly. If you are working with a new build, we highly recommend hiring a professional service like Johnson Exteriors.
