Our drywall installers, also called drywall hangers, are part of a team of professionals who take every precaution to ensure the job is done well. Since drywall is a heavy material, we have at least two workers to lift the board against the wall and glue, nail or screw it to a wood or metal frame. Each piece is measured twice and cut once for seamless installation.
Our drywall installers have experience working on different types of projects. We have handled large-scale drywall contracting services for the following construction jobs:
