DIFFERENT TYPES OF DRYWALL
One of the most revolutionary innovations in the field of construction is drywall. Taking much less to be installed than its predecessor, lathe and plaster, drywall more durable, efficient, and moisture resistant.
There are a wide variety of drywall options available both for Toronto’s residential and commercial buildings. The most popular option for drywall installation in Toronto is plain drywall, which comes in varying thickness, from 1/4″ to 3/4″. However, drywall can also be used to improve moisture and fire resistance.
EFFICIENT, ECO-FRIENDLY AND FIRE RATED DRYWALL
Updated building codes have increased the requirement for fire-rated wall assemblies in Toronto. This requires the installation of multiple layers of drywall to achieve. For walls that require fire-ratings, such as exterior walls within a distance of other residences, or interior walls separating apartment units, we offer Type X and Firecode C drywall.
For reducing moisture in your home, Greenboard and Backerboard are perfect options. Greenboard is commonly used in washrooms and other areas that experience elevated levels of humidity. This is perfect for washrooms or kitchens that will not be tiled but still exposed to water. Tile backer board or DenShield is ideal for showers because it is a great base for ceramic tile.
At Toronto Tapers we have environmentally sustainable solutions for the conscious consumer. We offer EcoRock, a drywall that uses a combination of 20 different recycled materials. EcoRock is trusted by many general contractors and builders for their LEED certification as it can contribute up to 8 LEED credits.
