You can make ceilings made of drywall, a partition in a room made of drywall, a drywall box in a bathroom (by the way, a moisture -resistant drywall is required for the bathroom) and t). D. To get started, let’s dwell on the ceilings. How to make a drywall ceiling with your own hands? Suspended plasterboard ceiling, the height of which, by the way, is determined by you, can be either one – or multi -level. This is a plus of drywall, you can do anything with it.

Plasterboard ceiling is a metal profile sewn with plasterboard slabs (sheets). The metal profile is attached to the ceiling and aligned with wooden wedges. When installing it, it is worth considering the weight of the future ceiling and use the appropriate fasteners.
If you are going to install a gypsum plasterboard ceiling with your own hands, with a special ventilation or air conditioning system, then you need to leave the gap between the ceiling and the future drywall ceiling. If you want to make the ceiling with backlight and do not know how to conduct wiring under drywall, then the answer is simple: no way. The wiring must be carried out until the ceiling is completely installed, and only then you can start the installation of drywall.
The finish of an almost finished ceiling is made in the following sequence:
one. The seams between the sheets and the recesses from the screws are filled with putty.
2. Then they are glued with a sickle (construction bandage).
Sometimes the question arises, is it possible to paint drywall in general? After the installation is completed, you can paint the ceiling from drywall, paste it with any coating: film, paper or tile. Before painting the ceiling made of drywall, the entire surface designed to stain must be darkened to align the microstructure.
How to paint drywall? What colors? It is better to paint drywall with alkyd enamel paints; They lie perfectly, have a rich palette, and with the help of matte paint you can visually increase the room.
Some also wonder: what is harmful, stretch ceilings or from drywall? Although stretch ceilings are still in fashion, specialists answer this question quite clearly. To date, drywall is one of the most environmentally friendly materials, since all components of this material are natural components; And no impurities.
From drywall you can make not only the ceiling, they can also finish the walls; With or without a frame. With frameless wall cladding with drywall, the sheets are simply attached to the wall using gypsum cardboard glue. A prerequisite for fastening with an unacceptable method is even and clean walls. If the walls cannot be leveled, then in some places you can simply put more glue. After the glue dries with putty and reinforcing tape, shut up the joints.
Well, if the walls are already completely uneven, then in this case, the frame method is used. First, the wall is filled, then traffic jams are inserted and the frame is made using nails. With this method, about 2 cm remains between the wall and drywall. free space, which slightly reduces living space, but, at the same time, is an additional heat insulator.
After the wall is finished directly with drywall, it can be painted or finished with tiles, etc. D. How to stick tiles on drywall? In order for the tile on drywall to hold better, it is necessary to carry out its primer first, after which you can already start cladding of drywall with tiles. Glue can be different: on a cement basis, elastic glue or liquid nails. Drywall for tiles, by the way, is suitable for anyone; at least moisture resistant, at least simple. The best and most reliable is elastic glue, however, the minus here is in high cost, as in the case of liquid nails. However, if you ask the question than and how to glue the tiles onto drywall, it is better to use good glue, even if it is expensive; After all, it will provide you with strength and durability. And by the way, ceramic tiles for drywall, or any other, will not only make its appearance more pleasant, but also hide flaws, let’s say cracks on drywall. At first they can be subsided, and glue the tile on top. Laying tiles on drywall or laying of a tile on drywall (in the bathroom for example), as a rule, does not take much time and does not require special skills; The main thing is not to rush and let the glue completely dry; Then your design will last you for a long time and right.
How to glue tiles on drywall we figured out, but we are used to the fact that something is constantly hanging on the walls. Whether it is towels in the bathroom, hours and or paintings in rooms, mirrors. And sometimes heavy objects (the same mirrors) simply do not hold on simple nails; For this, there are guides for drywall. The guides can be plastic or metal with a special hole into which the screw. When the screw is screwed, the guides expand and “sit tight” in drywall, and therefore heavy objects will not tear these screws out of the wall.
And in conclusion, I would like to remind you that the profile for drywall, simple drywall and gypsum cardboard are moisture -resistant, you can buy in specialized stores, but it is better to order directly from the supplier via the Internet. In this case, the price of price and for a moisture -resistant drywall will be below the profile for drywall for a drywall.
