What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept a variety of payment forms, including cash, debit, credit (Visa, Mastercard), and checks - personal or business.
What is the difference between drywall, gypsum board, plasterboard, and sheet rock?
Drywall, gypsum board, plasterboard, and sheet rock all refer to variations of the same product. It may cause confusion to see so many different names used for a panel primarily composed of calcium sulfate dihydrate, aka gypsum, with or without a variety of additives used to reduce humidity, mildew, and flammability. Some differ slightly in composition.
What services do you offer?
We offer a variety of services, both residential and commercial. We offer steel-stud or wood framing, insulation, drywall installation and finishing, as well as home renovations and repairs.
Do you offer painting services?
Yes, we offer a variety of painting services. Please feel free to ask us for details regarding your next painting project!
Can you repair small holes or damage?
Yes! No project is too small (or too big!) for us. We recommend repairing small defects before they grow to be much larger and affect adjacent pieces of drywall or further compromise the integrity of your walls or ceiling!
Do you offer Level 5 drywall finish?
At Calgary Drywall Ltd, we can provide any of the six levels of drywall finish, up to level 5 - the highest quality of drywall work. Through taping, mudding, and priming, we can help you achieve smooth walls that will only require painting to look perfect!
Help! My walls/ceilings have water damage!
If elements of your home have damaged due to leaks or faulty plumbing - the first step is repairing the cause of the issue. Once your plumbing has been repaired, or your roof has been fixed - whichever caused the problem - we can come and assess the damage. You don't have to suffer stained walls or ceilings! Once dry, we can perform all of the repairs and restore your home to its former glory!
What is R-value?
In the building industry, R-value is a metric of thermal resistance. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation.
Do I need to insulate my home?
Definitely! Insulation not only helps keep the cold out during the winter, it helps your home remain cool in the summer as well. In addition to helping keep your heating and air conditioning bills reasonable, insulation can mitigate noise and vibrations from the street.
Can I frame my basement with steel studs? What about wood?
Both are excellent options! However we usually recommend steel as it won't warp with time, like wood sometimes does. Steel stud framing is lightweight, durable, and reasonably priced, which explains the growing trend of steel stud framing in residential and commercial settings. If you are dead set on wood framing, we can also provide you with that service!
