Every home will have wiring and other inserts on the walls that surround its various rooms. In homes that have climate control systems installed, as many homes in Singapore will do, they may also serve as a backing for insulation. This insulation and wiring need to be concealed, and this is easily done by installing drywall on the walls, to provide them with an additional surface, that is also very easy to finish and paint.
According to All-In Plaster, drywall is sheets made up of gypsum plaster mixed with some fiber to act as binding, and further faced with thick sheets of paper. It has now become an acceptable method of covering walls, and preferred over the traditional lath and plaster, as it saves a lot of labor and time in its installation. Drywall installation in Singapore, as in all other countries undergoes a two-stage process. In the first stage, the board is first fixed to the wall, with drywall screws, or nails or glue. Screws and nails must be countersunk into the drywall panel to help in finishing. The boards must be properly sized, and openings cut into them, for the switches and outlets that need to come to the surface of the drywall. At times, a separate frame is fixed to the walls over which the drywall panels can be fixed. These frames can be of wood or metal. This frame is also useful for fixing any required insulation. The paper backing on the front of the drywall may need to be removed. In the second stage, the joints between various panels are finished and the heads of the screws or nails concealed with drywall compound. The drywall surface can then be painted over or given any desired finish.
Drywall gives you a surface for your Singapore home that is what will be finally viewed by all visitors to your home. It is important that the installation work is carried out by a qualified and experienced contractor from the locality so that you can ensure the proper quality. Get references from friends or acquaintances who have had such work carried out in their homes, and have been satisfied with the results. Alternatively, you can always look to local media and other sources that can give you the required information. Get a number of them to come and inspect your home and judge for themselves the extent of the work, and let each of them know the standards of work you expect, the time you would like them to take for completing a job, and any other details, so that each of them are quoting for similar work.
Good and experienced drywall contractors will not take more than a couple of days to complete a home after they have made all the necessary preparations, mostly offsite. They will take detailed measurements of each wall, and the opening needed, and prepare all the panels accordingly before they bring them into your home. They will have two teams, working separately on fixing and finishing and deliver you the work as contracted by them. Make sure that you have arranged for the necessary finance to pay for their materials and services. Find out more at https://www.allinplaster.com.
