    Default DRYWALL Your project done, start to finish in ONE day.


    I apologise for nicking the title of someone elses advert from elsewhere, but that's entirely what this thread is about. A couple of nights ago while surfing the net, I found this interesting claim about hanging and finishing drywall in one shift (less the sanding).

    myrocny.com/2009/12/drywall-your-project-done-start-to-finish-in-one-day-done-philsansonedrywall-com-3/

    I wasn't entirely sure if it was a sales gimmick, and I hesitated before I clicked the link to read a little more from his website.
    http://philsansonedrywall.com/

    If it works, I believe it to be a fabulous idea and have invited the website owner to our forum to see if he is interested in discussing his production process with us. My invite appears to have been unsuccessful, but I still thought it was worth a mention in his absence.

    Do any of you already use these methods?

    Looks impressive, but he obviously doesn't like sanding.

    I'm not really convinced. I couldn't see how he achieved his result (1 day job) and there could be a number of reasons for it. The only clue was the pictures with the folded internals. I've seen this done before, many years ago and wasn't all that convinced by it either. His demands are pretty funny though. I'd love to have all that on a job, it's the perfect environment for working in but never the reality on any job.
    How big a job can he do in one day? 1 room (extension), 1 flat (doubt it), 1 house (sure buddy).
    No way can one man do the job he has done in the pictures in one day. If he is hanging the boards, why hasn't he done the window reveals?

    I'd love to hear more about his methods. Maybe I could learn something...

    The 12 commandments were something else . We all know he's right but I cant ever remember having a setup that perfect for starting any job. Like you Swazi I have only seen sheets folded for sloped ceilings that left a spot on internal corner, but that was years ago. I don't make any claims I wouldn't be prepared to backup and shove any criticism back down peoples throats so if the guy said he can do it, then fair enough but I will only believe a single room could be done in a day... and like he said, his reputations on the line now his claim is posted all over the internet.

    I dropped my tools to come and see this post on a clients PC and I wonder how much extra traffic his website receives due to the interest? If it works, good luck to the fellow because its generated some free publicity.

    (I would love to see a time lapse movie of the work in progress, with the Benny Hill themetune as background music.)

    Builders and Contractors are required to pay 100% IN FULL,
    UPFRONT before we start, NO exceptions!
    VERBAL insurance quotes are free. WRITTEN insurance quotes
    are a refundable $50 applied as a credit when final payment is recieved.
    Prices are in effect January 1, 2006 and will remain in effect until further notice. All pricing is based on board HANDLED not what is installed. In other words, a room measuring 10' 2" would require 12' long sheets.....we would be paid for 12'. This is an entire industry wide standard, not something we made up.
    Reading that made me chuckle, who is going to pay upfront in full before any work is done?! by his reckoning if I carry in 8 bags of joint cement but only use 5 I can still charge you for 8!

    I once thought a "24 hr drywall" outfit would be great especially for hiding "parties that get out of hand" from your parents... and then I realized that those who need that usually don't have the money to pay for it . So I concentrated on craftsmanship.
    He has also been at this a year longer than i have.
    Maybe it because I am just not a border, but if i were making my internals by breaking and folding I would not be about to mention it. He is dead on with the stilts though. "not to high up, but a long way down", i love that

    With regards to making internals by 'breaking' a board, in reality all you get this way is a paper internal with no strength as well, that is all it is!

    thats just stupid........ lol........ my boss would have a f**kin fit if he walked in and seen the joiners boarding walls and stuff like that.......

    WHAT ACTUALLY GOES ON INSIDE SOME PEOPLES HEADS?

    thats a bit like building the whole roof of a house with 8 x2s perled and slated and putting that roof onto a 2x1" timber frame lol

    couldnt agree with you more saleen

    He would be cutting the boards with a pft boardmaster to active what he claims. Very tasty expensive piece of kit
