Making It Easier: No Paint Sheetrock

Making It Easier: No Paint Sheetrock

Looking For a Local Contractor Fast?

February 20, 2008

When you are looking at beginning a major home construction project like renovating an entire room or even adding a new room onto your existing home, you may be completely overwhelmed at the amount of work that will go into it.  You will need to get a building permit, have a design drawn by a professional, purchase all of the necessary equipment and hardware, and then you will have to begin the real work.  If you don't have a lot of experience in construction, you will even need to hire a contractor.  If all of this sounds daunting, the last thing you want to think about is the decorating that has to be done after the addition is complete.  So why not make things a little easier on yourself and use shortcuts like no paint sheetrock?

No paint sheetrock is only one of the many ways you can make a large home improvement project a lot easier on you and your family.  No paint sheetrock can really be both a time saver and an energy saver - while it doesn't save electrical energy, it does save your personal energy, and that can be the most important thing when you are going through a major home remodeling project.

No Paint Sheetrock

Most types of sheetrock or drywall need to be painted in order to look finished and polished.  However, there are a few types that do not actually need to be painted.  You can do some research and ask your contractor if you have one about the different brands of sheetrock or drywall that do not need to be painted; or you can go to your local home improvement store and ask about no paint sheetrock.

It is important that if you do use no paint sheetrock that you use a texture on it.  Any little imperfection in the drywall or sheetrock can be seen when light hits it, so you want to be sure that you have done all you can to distract from these imperfections.  Keep in mind that a lot of texturing compounds do have paint in them, so don't be surprised if your no paint sheetrock actually does get a little paint on it.
