Why Cut Drywall
When mold is detected, drywall will very commonly need removed. Some people ask why? The reason is simple. Sometimes it is more cost effective and cheaper for the customer to remove and replace. This can be the case because of many uncontrollable reasons. Sometimes the atmosphere is too large to control, or it could be a matter of how severe the loss was from the beginning. Material and atmosphere play the biggest factors in whether something gets dried or not. Humidity levels may remain high, so we want to present the cheapest option, which is sometimes removal of the material for the customer. Typically, we will perform a 2’ cut. This is because a sheet of drywall is manufactured 4’ x 8’. Cutting it in half is usually the quickest, easiest, cheapest method to replace in the affected area; commonly referred to as a 2’ flood cut.
