HOMEOWNER’S HANDBOOK

Hanging Drywall

Call it wallboard, plasterboard, Sheer, or just plain “rock,” like some pros do, drywall revolutionized the way that walls and ceilings are covered. Before the 1950's, when these factory-made panels of paper-wrapped gypsum plaster came into widespread use, it took days for lathers and plasterers to create a firm, flat foundation for paint or wallpaper.
