Owning your own home or office in today's changing and expensive economy is an achievement in itself. You are proud of your spaces and do your best to make sure it is functionally solid and aesthetically pleasing.

Time and age contribute to the general decomposition of drywall and can leave your walls cracked or uneven. When your drywall is no longer as pristine as you would like, it can leave 'bubbles and bumps' in your home paint, holes in your walls, and age the overall look of your home.

We have two installation proposals for this task: the traditional drywall we all know and the blue board.
Traditional Drywall Versus Blue Board
For many of us, types of sheetrock, or drywall, is never a consideration. Once the need arrives, we’ll pick up the phone and call our trust contractor, H&G REMODELING LLC. However, knowing your options is always best when it comes to any type of home construction. This article will highlight several differences between the traditional sheetrock that most people are accustomed to and blue board. As you will see, blue board is the best option.
Budget friendly solution
When it comes to home renovations, we all have a budget that needs to be adhered to. Thus, when a product is introduced beyond the one we’re used to, we tend to shy away from it. If it’s new, or new to me, it must cost more. Right? Well, when you’re looking at blue board and traditional drywall, the answer is wrong. This price difference with the upgraded blue board selection is not that much different. Certainly not enough of a difference to eliminate the possibility from the running.
Another significant consideration at hand is the appearance that your drywall will provide. The walls of your home are one of the most prominent visual areas. Although we paint and hang décor, without the right drywall, you could be fighting stressful element. A few of these elements, which are common to lower quality
drywall materials include:
Uneven wall tone
Rough or bumpy finishes
Let’s go back to the conversation about our budget. As we all know, time is money. Thus, by selecting a drywall solution that provides a quicker installation, you’ll save money. Lucky for you, blue board is the solution you’ve been looking for! On average, a traditional drywall application can take up to three days. This time period involves hanging, applying compound, drying, sanding, and repeating the process. However, when you choose blue board, your job can be completed on the same day. By eliminating the drying and sanding process, you’re enabling contractors to complete the job in no time at all.
When it comes to plastering, there’s only one choice
Painting Blue Board Over Traditional Drywall.
With increasing requests for blue board installation in Lowell, MA, and surrounding areas, our team realizes that this construction material is growing rapidly in popularity. And, it’s no surprise given all of the benefits this type of drywall provides to both residential and commercial customers.
One significant benefit blue board installation provides is the ease of painting after wall construction is complete. Unlike traditional drywall, you can paint directly over blue board. This will not only save you time and money, but it will put valuable time back into your hands.
Quicker drying times
Blue board is designed to absorb any additional moisture from utilized materials quickly. For example, moisture is present in the plaster veneer and finishes. Because of the capability to absorb that moisture, paints can be mixed directly into the veneer. By doing so, you’re eliminating the additional steps of drying time, primer, and repeated paint applications.
Even though you can add paint directly to the veneer, we don’t recommend skipping the primer. Like any type of painting, priming the surface is a crucial first step. By doing so, you’re giving the paint a more durable surface to adhere to, reducing the chances of peeling in the future. If you’re up for the task, once it’s dried, sanding the primer will ensure the smoothest wall surface possible.
It’s important to remember that, like any surface, wall imperfections need attention before painting. If nails or joints are left exposed, you’re leaving open the possibility of them showing through your paint. Using some type of finish before painting will help ensure a flawless finish.
