Drywall is also known as sheetrock, plasterboard, gypsum board, buster board, custard board, or gypsum panels. It’s made from calcium sulfate (gypsum) and extruded between layers of thick facer paper and backer papers. This panel is used for interior wall and ceiling construction. Mixing plaster with fiber, typically paper or glass wool, as well as a plasticizer and foaming agent, and other additives can help reduce mildew, flammability, and water absorption.

You can cut drywall to the desired size using a large square. This is done by scoring the paper (usually white) on one side with a utility knife. Then, you will need to break the sheet and cut the backing paper. You can cut small features, such as outlets or light switches with a keyhole saw. The drywall is attached to the structure using nails, drywall screws or glue. Both residential and commercial builders are increasingly using drywall fasteners. These fasteners can be used for interior drywall corners support and replace non-structural metal or wood blocking. They save material and labor costs, reduce callbacks from truss lifts, increase energy efficiency and simplify electrical and plumbing installation.
Because of its inherent nature, drywall is very vulnerable to moisture. With prolonged exposure to moisture, gypsum can become a sticky paste. In such cases, parts or the entire building might need to be taken down and replaced. Additionally, mold can thrive on paper coverings or organic additions that are mixed into the gypsum core.
