| Drywall Information:
Standard drywall comes in 4' by 8' sheets although 4' by 12' drywall sheets are also available. The 4' by 8' drywall sheets are preferred by
most due to the more manageable size.The 4' by 12' sheets are simply "beasts" to move around!
The common thickness of drywall is 1/2" or 5/8". 1/2" is usually used on walls and 5/8" is used on ceilings for 24 inch on center studs. Always
check your local building codes!
There is standard drywall, and what is commonly called "green board". The "green" drywall is more moisture resistant and should be used in
bathrooms and areas of moisture. There is also a brand new mold-resistant drywall that will hit the market soon.
For bathtub areas don't use drywall! Instead use a concrete-based "rock board" with ceramic tile installed over. The same goes for kitchen
sink areas. You may, however, apply tile to primed drywall in non-moisture areas.

Sheetrock requires several applications of soft, easily damaged joint compount, with each layer needing sanding before it is ready to paint.
Why not plaster? One coat of veneer plaster can be troweled over sheetrock, it sets hard and smooth, and requires no sanding. In addition,
the skilled application of plaster can make the remodel blend seamlessly into the existing structure.
Plaster can be tinted any color to offer a cost effective and beautiful alternative to paint. Finely honed trowel techniques give subtle variations
in color and texture to your wall surfaces; paint looks flat and dull by comparison. Beautiful new plastered walls without the cost, hassle and
fumes of paint - it's an easy choice!
Venetian plaster is made from aged lime and ground marble. The final application is burnished to a lustrous sheen transforming walls into
works of art. It has the look and feel of polished marble.
Note: Various paint manufacturers offer products called Venetian plaster. They contain polymers and additives and are in no way comparable
to the real thing. True Venetian plaster is pure, organic, and has no VOC's.
