Whether you’re a pro or working on your own DIY drywall project, we’ve got you covered from start to finish. Drywall is a flat panel consisting of gypsum plaster sandwiched in between two sheets of thick paper. It adheres to metal or wood studs using nails or screws. Sheetrock is a specific brand of drywall sheet. In addition to drywall, we have the drywall materials and drywall supplies you need to complete any drywall job.
Choosing the Right Drywall
To make drywall last for many years, be sure to choose the right type of drywall for the project. If you are tackling a drywall job alone, consider ultra-lightweight gypsum boards, which are easier to lift, carry and install. If you’re placing drywall in a space where moisture is present, such as in bathrooms, kitchens or homes in humid climates, consider using mold and moisture resistant drywall. We also carry fire resistant drywall for extra protection and peace of mind.
Making Sure You Pick the Right Drywall Size
Drywall is made in different sizes and width, so you want to be sure to choose the right one. Drywall price depends on the type you are using.
The most common size of drywall is 4 x 8 drywall. Known for its versatility, 4 x 8 drywall allows for either vertical or horizontal installation. We also carry 4 x 10 drywall, which provides a smoother surface on tall walls and expansive ceilings. If you’re looking for drywall for areas with high ceilings, 4 x 12 drywall is the longest lengthy drywall available and covers more area in fewer panels. In addition to installation, we can also help you with drywall repair.

We’ve got everything from drywall taping tools and drywall mesh tape, to joint compound, drywall lifts, drywall screws, fasteners, mud pans and drywall fire tape.

If you consider the frame of a house to be the skeleton of a home, then the studs are some of the most important bones. Framing studs are a drywall essential, ensuring that the walls are sturdy, and the house retains its value. While homes were traditionally framed with wood studs, metal studs have become an increasingly popular option.
