The Difference Between Drywall and Plastering
Drywall doesn't crack when properly installed. It is made out of softer material called gypsum. Drywall is installed in sheets that are nailed into the wood studs of a house. Plaster dries much harder than drywall. It is more labor-intensive and expensive to install, but it does have its advantages.
The Benefits of Installing Plaster
if you are questioning whether to apply plaster or drywall to your walls or ceiling, the professionals at Mulholland Painting can help choose the best materials for your interior. Plaster is inherently more durable than drywall. Plaster provides better insulation, which results in lower heating and cooling expenses. It also outperforms drywall in terms of safety. It has better fireproofing and soundproofing properties. Finally, it inhibits mold growth. If any of these properties are important to you, choosing to pay a bit more to have Mulholland Painting install plaster will be money well spent.
