How to paint drywall

Drywall: Simply design interiors

Implement living space wishes with the team from Malerwerkstätte Werner Pflug from St.Ingbert-Hassel

The drywall construction pays off: it is quick, clean and inexpensive. In this way, the living space can be redesigned the way you want it. A large room can be turned into two smaller ones in a short time, because a partition or door is built in in no time at all. A subsequent roof extension can also be carried out without a lot of dirt. You can even benefit from dry construction in damp rooms, because gypsum boards specially impregnated for this are insensitive to moisture and toilets can be hung on the stud frame without any problems.


Advantages of drywall:

✔ short and easy construction time

✔ low costs (compared to solid construction)

✔ without additional building moisture

✔ low load on the building structure

✔ flexible room design

✔ subsequent expansion (dismantling) possible

How does drywall work?

In drywall, partition walls made of prefabricated components are installed in the interior. The residents are hardly disturbed during the construction phase, as the noise level and dirt are low. The stud frame is attached to the wall, floor and / or ceiling directly on site. The assembly is simple and clean by screwing, plugging or clamping.

The quick form of interior design

Because there are no drying times (as with solid construction), the smooth surface that has been created can be processed further directly. Then it is painted, papered or tiled. In this way, interiors are designed with lightweight construction in a short time. Classic construction elements that are required for this are the stud frame made of metal profiles (or wood), plasterboard panels and the insulation made of mineral wool:

Required material

  • Stud frames:

    As a substructure for suspended ceilings and walls are used in dry construction Stud framee. They provide the necessary stability. Stud frames consist either of metal profiles or of squared timber and have a high load-bearing capacity. Pre-wall installations, for example, consist of a self-supporting frame made of galvanized steel rails that allow sanitary objects such as toilets or wash basins to be securely attached.

  • Plaster:

    Plaster of paris is a product of nature. It has a moisture-regulating effect and generates a healthy living environment. Plaster of paris is not only an environmentally friendly building material, it is also allergy-free. Therefore, plasterboard is the ideal material for building drywall and ceilings.

  • Insulation material:

    In connection with the cladding on both sides with plasterboard, the Insulation material in between the decisive sound insulation and fire protection. Mineral wool and occasionally natural insulation materials are often used.

Construction phases in order

In order to understand at which position within the construction phase the drywall takes place, the sequence of the individual tasks is listed here:

  • Roof covering and insulation
  • Installation of windows and external doors
  • Plumbing-heating-electrical installation
  • Underfloor heating as required
  • Floor (tiles / coverings)
  • Painting (wallpaper, painting, cladding)
  • Sanitary (washbasin, tub, shower, toilet, radiator)
  • Interior doors and furnishings

Drywall in 3 steps

The procedure in new or old buildings does not differ from one another for drywall builders. Unless a partition is already in place and only needs to be provided with appropriate new insulation:

1. Attaching the substructure from prefabricated metal profiles. The stud frame is initially built up as a skeleton of the wall.

2. Assembly of the panels (Plasterboard or plasterboard)
The stud frame is lined with insulation and planked.

3. Grouting and filling
The drywall can then be painted or papered accordingly.

Between the two plasterboard panels you can see the stud frame with electrical cables running through it. (Photo left and above)


What does drywall cost?

It is customary for specialist companies to calculate the cost of a drywall in m2 specify. So if a company e.g. 50 € per m2 for the installation of a wall with an area of ​​10 m2 requested, there are costs in the amount of 500 €.

Tips for requesting a quote

When solving the cost of installing drywall, you should clarify the following questions:

  • What works are included in the price?
  • Are there any extra material costs?
  • Should the finished drywall also be filled?

You can then compare these points for different offers.

Application examples of drywall

Suspended ceilings:
The purpose of a suspended ceiling can be purely creative or a soundproofing measure. In any case, the installation of an additional ceiling can be used for the invisible cable routing of the lighting, for example.

Wall systems:
Partition walls or room dividers enable a different room layout with little effort. The wall coverings offer a variety of design options in straight or curved form. They are made of plasterboard, wood or metal.

Wall installation:
In new or old buildings, pre-wall installations are mostly used in the sanitary area. They can be used both in front of a wall and as a free-standing room divider when planning a bathroom.

Floor systems:
Cavity and raised floors as well as dry sub-floors are installed here. Then floor coverings such as parquet, laminate or tiles are laid.

Structural components:
There are, for example, supporting structures for increased loads, lights without cabling, ventilation outlets or frames for doors and windows.

Insulation:
In dry construction, efficient insulation (coll. Insulation) is possible with rock wool or glass wool (mineral wool). Alternatively, natural insulation materials such as flax, wood wool or hard foam can also be used.

Precast screed

Floors are heavily used in residential buildings as well as in commercial or public buildings. A screed is applied to the substructure made of wood or reinforced concrete, which can be executed as a flowing or prefabricated screed.
