As a leading finishing contractor, our drywall installers and finishers exceed customer expectations with their ability to work efficiently and neatly. We will ensure that no matter the layout of the room or ceilings, our commercial contracting work is completed professionally. The Lakeside team expertly measures and hangs large drywall panels to minimize drywall seams. Our finishing crew hangs drywall to rough framing with nails and screws, and utilizes drywall anchors and tape as well as a finishing adhesive to secure drywall and minimize nail pops. A final step to finishing drywall is to carefully apply several coats of joint compound, also commonly called drywall mud, and to apply a skim coat that smooths any rough areas. Once these steps are completed, our painting team is ready to prime, texture and paint. Our customers rely on our finishing contracting team for their drywall expertise and all their hanging and installing drywall projects.
The Lakeside drywall finishing and contracting team can also patch and repair drywall. Any damage to drywall and corners including dents, dings, nail pops, and holes can be fixed. We will determine if the area can be patched or if new drywall needs to be hung. We will finish and texture the wall for a seamless repair.
Cutting Edge Technology For Drywall Installation:
Lakeside prides itself on utilizing cutting edge technology for drywall installation and finishing. We have a Grabber PanelMax Milling Machine that uses CNC technology to create outside and inside corners by milling out the gypsum material and leaving the paper product, thus eliminating the need for additional drywall tape & mud materials. This not only saves time on the project, it also brings down the drywall cost by not having an extra step in the overall process.
- Mold resistant drywall – Commonly called Green drywall
- Moisture & water resistant drywall- Often called purple drywall, it resists moisture, mold, & mildew as well as scratches, scuffs, and dents
- Fire resistant drywall – Known as Fireboard or Type X, this drywall is not fireproof but is thicker and has glass fibers mixed with the gypsum, thus resulting in a higher fire resistance than traditional drywall. NOTE: All drywall is manufactured to be fire resistant but Type X has a higher resistance than traditional drywall
- Lead lined drywall – Used in x-ray and radiation rooms (hospitals, dentist, healthcare)
- Sound absorbing drywall – Constructed in layers, sound dampening drywall reduces noise transference between rooms
