Is There A Difference Between Drywall And Sheetrock?

Sheetrock is simply the brand name of an incredibly popular drywall product. Drywall, a panel made of gypsum plaster sandwiched between thick paper, has many vendors. Though people will call all sorts of drywall, “Sheetrock,” only drywall from U.S. Gypsum Company is actually allowed to market drywall as under the name Sheetrock. So, even if the drywall is from Titan Commercial Products, Allied Manufacturing, or National Gypsum Company, people are likely going to call it, “Sheetrock.”  Sheetrock was one of the first drywall products and is so popular that its name seems virtually interchangeable with drywall. Think about how often you call an off-brand of tissue, “Kleenex.” It’s the same idea. Not all nuggets are McNuggets, but that doesn’t mean children won’t refer to them as such.

Drywall by other names is also wallboard, plasterboard, gypsum board, or gypsum panel. It’s made from calcium sulfate dihydrate (gypsum) with or without additives. Usually it’s pressed in between thick sheets of paper (a facer and a backer.)
Tip: You can sometimes find drywall half priced in decent shape at Habitat for Humanity or other resale stores.

Should You Invest In Good Carpet Padding To Flip A House?

You’ve got your eye on a potential investment property. You’re creating your budget. You want to cut some corners. Should you get cheap carpet padding?

Most investors find that a good carpet padding increases buyer interest even more than a good carpet would. Good padding can absolutely help you flip a house. Buyers assume that if you’re willing to invest in a quality padding, the home must have quality products everywhere. You can even go with a cheaper carpet if you choose a better padding. It wouldn’t even be deceptive. Quality padding can help even low grade padding last longer. The good padding can help carpet absorb the impact from traffic from below.

Plus, the feeling of nice carpet padding beneath a buyer’s feet goes a long way. It absolutely goes further than the same cost investment on a higher quality carpet. Keep in mind that residential carpet should have a minimum six-pound density rating, but many prefer an eight-pound padding. You can install up to half-inch carpet padding beneath cut pile carpet. Still, for berber carpet, you should keep it under 3/8 inch thickness.
Tip: If installing carpet padding yourself, don’t forget to cover all seams with seam tape!

    If You Don’t Have 100% Of The Funds, Don’t Start A Real Estate Project

If You Don’t Have 100% Of The Funds, Don’t Start A Real Estate Project

If you don’t have all the funds you will need for your real estate project, be that flipping a house or renovating a potential rental property, don’t take that risk. That’s a gamble that could end up with you in a really bad situation. If you want to start a real estate project, be sure to start with more debt or more funds than you think you will need. That’s right, always starts with a loan for more than what you think you will need to complete the project.

See, it’s easier to get initial funding than subsequent funding. If something comes up and you don’t have the funds to cover it, your entire project could stall, and then fall apart. You don’t want to spend countless hours and resources only to lose all of your work in the eleventh hour. It’s not unheard of for someone to get 90% finished on a real estate project and then lose everything. Why? Because they tapped out of funds. Don’t learn the hard way. Take our word for it. Never start a real estate rehab project unless you have all of the money that you will need to finish the job.
