Drywall Contractor in Portland, OR

Drywall, also called sheetrock, is a panel made of gypsum (a sulfate mineral) that’s mixed with other materials to create a plaster, which is lined with two sheets of thick paper. Drywall is commonly used to construct walls and ceilings.

Many professionals prefer using drywall over plaster (a gypsum paste applied to walls) for the following reasons:

  • Easier to install and repair
  • More affordable
  • Doesn’t require sanding
  • Better insulation

At Alpha Environmental, our professionals have over 20 years of experience with drywall installation and repair. We have the proper tools and know-how to properly install drywall that will look great and last decades.

Drywall Installation

You’ll likely need a drywall installation if you’re:

  • Building a new home or business
  • Updating a room layout
  • Adding a room, closet, or partition/wall
  • Remodeling or renovating your home or business

We recommend hiring a drywall contractor because good, professional-looking drywall requires:

  • A lot of time and labor. Installing even a small amount of drywall takes a lot of time to prepare for and complete the project. By hiring contractors, who often work in teams like we do, you’ll have the project completed in a much shorter time frame compared to what it might take to do it yourself.
  • The proper tools and knowledge. High-quality drywall installation tools are pricey. A drywall contractor will already have all of the necessary tools, which means you won’t have the added expense of buying them yourself. Plus, the contractor will also know how to properly use the equipment, which will take a lot of learning if you haven’t installed drywall before.
  • Extensive practice and skill. It takes a lot of skill and experience so the drywall has a seamless look with no rough surfaces, uneven corners or panels, sagging ceilings, or visible joints or screw/nail holes.

Drywall Repair & Patching

Drywall repair and patching takes just as much skill as drywall installation. Repairing drywall yourself may be tempting, but you could actually do more damage than good—especially if you’re not familiar with the drywall’s condition.

You often need drywall repairs or patching for things like:

  • Water leaks/damage: When sheetrock gets wet, the gypsum inside can crumble and separate from the paper when it dries—causing the drywall to become weak. For any water damage, you’ll want to get the drywall repaired as soon as possible.
  • Door handles hitting walls: If you don’t have door stoppers, door handles will repeatedly hit the drywall, eventually putting a hole through it.
  • Foundation settling: Structure foundations naturally settle (sink into the ground) over the years, which can cause sheetrock to shift and crack.
  • Damage from children and pets: If playtime gets a little rowdy, you may need a hole patched or a corner evened out.
  • Moving into or out of your home: Boxes nicking wall corners and couch legs putting holes through drywall are common when carrying heavy stuff throughout your home.
  • Electrical, plumbing, or HVAC repairs: These kinds of repairs often require direct access to the system inside the drywall, which means you’ll need to have someone patch a hole after the electrician or plumber is finished.
  • Nail pops: These are the tiny protrusions from nail heads that got pushed out of a stud when the wood naturally shrank.

Alpha environmental was extremely helpful in navigating me through the process of testing some leftover construction debris for asbestos so I could take it to the dump. Their office manager spent time with me on the phone discussing the options for sample collection, and was extremely friendly in answering my many questions. Sample drop off at the office was easy and the results even came back a few days earlier than expected. Will definitely return if I need more sampling done!

We used Alpha Environmental Services to conduct our home inspection, radon testing, sewer scope and oil tank decommissioning. Every part of their service was really professional. They took so many great photos of the house during the inspection and offered lots of explanation on what they found. Great team. Highly recommend!
