Choosing The Right Drywall Tool For Your Project

May 6, 2008
Being a contractor is very hard work. In order to build or renovate a home it is necessary to have the right tools. Drywall contractors have one of the most tedious aspects of being a contractor because of all the detail that is needed in performing their trade.

Having the necessary Drywall Tools is critical to doing the job right. There are many different Drywall Tools that are needed to perform every aspect of the job. Professional drywall contractors are proficient in hanging drywall; for a really good contractor, all it takes is a glance and he or she knows what needs to be done. For the novice homeowner who has little experience, not having the right Drywall Tools can be a disaster waiting to happen.

It is important to know exactly what type of Drywall Tools are needed for each part of the renovation, and the best way to find this information is doing online research.

*Tape measure

*Sander

*Tape

*Drywall mud

*Screwdriver

*Drywall hammer (yes there is a difference- a drywall hammer creates a rippling effect without breaking the protective layer of the drywall, making it easier to cover with the mud.)

*Drywall screws

These are the standard Drywall Tools that are necessary to complete any job. However when you add

*Stilts

*Drywall screw gun (again, this makes a difference because this type of gun will countersink the screw making it easier to cover with the mud.)

*Power driver

*Electric Saw

You have everything that you need to get the job done quickly and cleanly. If you want specialty items, there are Drywall Tools that are specifically made to cut different shapes in the drywall. This is very handy when the contractor has to cut out a square for a junction box or a light switch. If the drywall is already hung and you need to cut a piece out, using keyhole saw.

Another Drywall Tool that has proven to be very useful is the drywall saw. This can cut around items such as pipes or put a window in between rooms without damaging pipes or studs.

Drywall is very heavy, especially if you have to go up and down a ladder for each sheet. It can be exhausting and at the end of the day, painful. A drywall lift is a special Drywall Tool that can be rented in order to lift the drywall to the ceiling. It allows the person hanging the drywall to install it in a faster amount of time without all the backbreaking work.

It is also important to choose the right drywall for the room that you are renovating; there are special types of drywall for bathrooms because of the moisture that is there on a daily basis.

Although hanging drywall can be a very demanding task, having the right Drywall Tools can make the job a lot easier. If you do not have the right tools, or enough experience, your home improvement project can turn into a disaster. Once you are proficient at using the Drywall Tools, you can take on any project in your home.
