Residential Drywall Thelma
Thelma contacted us to assist with residential drywall and installation at their house in Brakenfell.
She already had a clear picture in mind of the layout she desired for changing their garage into a granny flat.
The new residential drywall was installed in their existing garage.
The residential drywall was fixed to existing walls and trusses. Skimmed ceiling was also installed.
The electrical articulation was done by their own electrician.
The drywall was also fitted with a solid barn style sliding door and heavy duty rail. The doorway was created using corner beads and skimmed.
The residential drywall in the bathroom was fitted with fibre cement boards to ensure longevity and protections against moisture.
They painted the residential drywall two coats low sheen.
As can be seen the final product was not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing but also spacious and homely.
The structure was created from galvanized floor track which was fixed to the floor with nail in screws, aluminium natural anodized wall channel fitted to the ceilings and walls where required and galvanized studs as per supplier recommendation. Corner sections done with galvanized angle and all secured with drywall screws.
It needs to be noted that accuracy when constructing the structure is of utmost importance. If the structure is poorly constructed the end product will be of poor visual quality. After the drywalling structure was completed 12.5mm Gypsum board cladding was used.
Joint was then fiber taped and two coats Rhinoglide applied. Once dry, the joints was sanded to a smooth finish in preparation for painting.
It was an absolutely a pleasure to do this project for Thelma and it truely felt like home away from home.
Well done to the team!!!
