I have done gyprocking before and did do a wonderful job on my mothers
basement back in 1981 or so... A few things I can't remember or maybe it
wasn't invented back in the day.LOL .. My question is this...... Is there a
difference between ceiling gyprock and wall gyprock? I am going to
completely gyprock a bedroom (10X13) with 1/2 inch. Do I just buy the sheets
for the entire area or do I have to seperate wall type from ceiling type?
Reason why I ask this is my brother said one type has a green stripe and
other has a red stripe incicating ceiling? Or is my brother bullsh*tting me?
While I have the floor....which to you do first?...ceiling or walls?
Your brother is bs'ing you. I assume the spacing between wall studs
and between ceiling joists is 16 inches or less so that you don't have
to worry about sagging on the ceilings. I would do the ceilings first
as it is harder to move sheetrock around over your head to ge a
perfect fit in the corners, etc. Then you can put the wall sheetrock
up under the rough edges of the ceiling and no one will ever know if
you finish the corners well. We'll see if others agree or not.
Either get a couple of friends and a couple of step ladders and a case
of beer to do the ceilings or rent a hoist and just one friend..
Give something time to show up. I ALWAYS allow at least one hour
Well it's been overe a day and I STILL don't see my first two
posts...all I see is this one...must be something in my filters... Jim
