EnduraFlood wall panel installations provide a practical and beautiful solution to help manage the risks of mold growth and repair costs for basements and other flood prone areas.
As with many other types of projects, proper preparation is critical for best results.
In this video, we will demonstrate best practices when it comes to cutting conventional drywall.
Before cutting, measure and mark the desired horizontal trim height. In most cases, this should be 24 inches or 36 inches from the floor.
Draw a horizontal line along the wall to mark the desired cut, preferably using a level.
For straight wall sections, use an oscillating tool. Consider the use of a vacuum if needed.
For corners, use a four-inch hand grinder with an abrasive cut-off wheel for metal. The use of a vacuum is required. Always start at the tip of the corner.
Turn the grinder so that the rotating blade cuts away from the corner. Then, as you cut, move away from the corner.
Do not use utility knives, drywall knives, or knives of any other type, as these will lead to uneven and jagged edges along straight straight walls, and especially on corners.
Remember, proper preparation is critical to achieving the best results.
