What is drywall and why is it used?

Drywall is a panel made of plaster and/or wood pulp between two pieces of paper that is used to form the interior walls and ceilings of homes. It is also used to create architectural design features in homes such as arches. Drywall is used in homes because it does not burn or catch fire as fast as plywood. Drywall is also significantly easier to install than plaster which saves on labor.

Does drywall installation cause a lot of dust in the home?

At Ottawa Drywall Guys, we know dust can be a nuisance for you, and we take great care to minimize the amount of dust that is circulated. Our team will set down drop-cloths and other mitigation elements, and we’ll make sure the job is cleaned up to your satisfaction.

Can drywall be recycled?

In most areas’ drywall will not be picked up with normal garbage or recycling due to its size. However, there are a few recyclers who will accept drywall. Recyclers will break down the drywall and use it to make other things (including new drywall). The simple act of recycling drywall can help protect the environment by not adding to landfills.

Is the homeowner or landlord responsible for carting away the materials & debris?

Ottawa Drywall Guys will take away everything you need removed when we finish the job. Count on our professional experience, backed by client reviews and testimonials, for peace of mind in knowing that we’ll leave your home or development site in even better shape than when we first arrived! The only trace we’ll leave is an amazing drywall installation.
