Tips for Installing Drywall around Openings


” Can you tell me how to install drywall around doors and windows so that it doesn’t crack? “


You can reduce the amount of drywall cracks at the joints around door and window openings. When installing the drywall, orient the drywall sheet so that the joint lines up with the center of the opening and then cut away the excess. Don’t fasten the drywall to the header, instead use interior casing nails to fasten the loose edge of the drywall.
