In a lot of ways, Drywall is underrated. Look around your home, it is everywhere, yet many do not fully appreciate its functionality.  It’s the only thing separating you between your insulation.

Brayton Construction knows all too well the virtues of this product.

Crews recently responded to an emergency flood at a basement bungalow on Wilbert Cox Drive.  Upon arrival, crews cut from the base floor up 2ft of drywall around the perimeter of the basement.

This is done to ensure that any water-logged insulation can be extracted to eliminate any possibility of mold build-up.

Crews than inspect the encompassing vapor barrier and secure any breaches in the membrane with the use of a strengthened adhesive.

Afterwards, drywall is re-cut and installed followed by several layers of mud and tape to enclose any seams.

Below is a before and after image of drywall and insulation installation.  This process is one of the first steps in a flood restoration construction project.
