Walls are not indestructible, which is why at some point in your lifetime, you’ll end up having to repair one. We’ve all seen walls break for a number of reasons. Someone gets mad and punches a hole straight through the drywall; A playful wrestling match gets out of hand and someone gets throw into a wall; You put the Lay-Z-boy too close to the wall and before you think of the consequences, you lean back to get comfortable. Drywall breaks for a number a reasons, but sometimes the reason for the drywall work isn’t due to a break at all.
After a while of living in the same configuration, home owners tend to get bored with their current floorplan or outlive the uses of certain rooms. Having a big living room is great for when the kids are growing up and always invite friends over, but after the chickens fly the coop, it may feel too big or empty. Tearing down the wall and making the room smaller is always an option. By doing that, the homeowner can increase the size of another room, or, if there’s enough space, create an entirely new room.
On the other hand, young homeowners may want to expand their entire home when they are expecting new additions to the family. Adding rooms to a home is a whole other reason to need drywall work done. It is the first, and only, thing you will see when you walk in the freshly built room, other than the floor. Therefore, in my opinion, it’s the most important part of the room. You’ll have to start from scratch, but the drywall will be the finishing touch that makes the new additions hospitable.
It’s the same idea as a homeowner “finishing” a basement or garage. It’s completely okay for it to standalone as a basic frame, but you wouldn’t want to spend a lot of time in a space like that. It’s creepy and cold (lack of insulated walls) atmosphere just doesn’t seem livable without the completed floor and walls that you’d get with a normal part of a house.
