Mildew-resistant or mildew-resistant drywall is a fairly new phenomenon in the drywall business. Never confuse mildew- or mould-resistant drywall with water resistant drywall, also called “green board” in the trade. Mildew-resistant dry wall doesn’t have a paper it’s a fiber glass mat as the materials that is facing as an alternative. Paper is a natural substance that functions like mold and mildew foods. Installing mildew-resistant drywall is no different from installing dry wall that is typical; you use the same methods as well as the resources. Always hang dry wall to the ground using the extended side of the sheet horizontal. Never hang dry wall vertical to the ground.
Measuring for the Cut
Measure using a tape measure, in the ceiling for measure in the base of the very best sheet down toward the ground for measurements on the sheet, and measurements for the best dry wall sheet. Transfer these measurements to the surface of the dry wall panel.
Start in a corner together with the tape measure for most measurements that are horizontal. Transfer these measurements to the surface of the dry wall panel.
Measure vertically and horizontally to the middle of any round pipe that protrudes from a wall, and calculate the diameter of the pipe for cuts that are round. Transfer these measurements to the surface of the dry wall panel.
Chalk a line on the surface of the drywall sheet to generate the cut-line between two points that are measured.
Cutting the Dry Wall
Cut seriously on the dry wall sheet you developed along the lines using a set- knife, making sure to totally split the the top of dry wall. Always make your cuts on the the final side of the dry wall sheet.
Fold 45 to 90-degrees the undesirable dry wall area, slice the the paper backing of the dry wall sheet and eliminate any extra dry wall.
Sand and easy the freshly cut edge of the drywall sheet utilizing the dry wall rasp.
Place the mildew-resistant drywall sheet in in place on the wall where you want it to go, and have a helper maintain it in location. Make sure that the sheet is level.
Screws utilizing the screw gun through the dry wall to the studs behind. Make sure that the screw heads without breaking through the area substance, indent the area of the drywall.
Install screws every 6″ on the perimeter, and every one foot in the area of the dry wall sheet.
