The majority of homes in the Bucks County area have interior walls made of drywall. Drywall comes in panel sheets made from gypsum. There are two other types of drywall, Type X and Type C. These contain higher percentages of glass fibers (Type C have the highest percentage). The higher the percentage of glass fibers the higher the fire rating is on the drywall. Drywall can also be called: sheet rock, buster board, gypsum panel, and wallboard.
When you are planning on building a house, an addition, or remodeling, one of the first decisions you’ll need to make is what type of material do you want to use for the walls. Some of the older houses in the Bucks County area have plaster walls. Although these are very sturdy homes and walls, they are not always practical or within everyone’s budget. Not to mention, decorating plaster walls is somewhat of a challenge!
There are many reasons why drywall is replacing plaster and wood panels.
