Business / Construction / Drywall: (or Gypsum Wallboard (GWB), Sheet rock or Plasterboard) A manufactured panel made out of gypsum plaster and encased in a thin cardboard. Usually 1/2' thick and 4' x 8' or 4' x 12' in size. The panels are nailed or screwed onto the framing and the joints are taped and covered with a 'joint compound'. 'Green board' type drywall has a greater resistance to moisture than regular (white) plasterboard and is used in bathrooms and other 'wet areas'.
Business / Construction / Wrapped Drywall: Areas that get complete drywall covering, as in the doorway openings of bifold and bipass closet doors. MORE
