National Lumber boom truck delivery of drywall directly into upper floor of building.

Boom Truck Delivery

Caution and care must be used when moving drywall; the panels are heavy and must be moved using proper equipment.

National Lumber has boom trucks, with up to 90' reach, to deliver drywall directly to the building floor where it will be installed — saving you time and effort.

Our biggest difference is HOW we deliver:

Flexibility — when and where you need materials

Delivery Expertise — driver and helper know how to carefully handle heavy, fragile drywall products. Plus, our people can knowledgeably split delivery of the load across the jobsite even without on-site instruction

From the forklift drivers who handle the drywall in our warehouses, to the delivery personnel, proper training ensures the quality and safety of the delivered materials.

Storage of Drywall

Gypsum panels are brittle compared to other building products. If not properly supported, individual panels or a whole lift can break.

Protection from water and weather elements is important. Exposure to the weather not only damages drywall by moisture intrusion, but it also causes other harm not immediately obvious.

For example, moisture can affect the bond of the face paper to the gypsum core causing problems during application and finishing. Also, ultraviolet (UV) exposure from sunlight will ruin the ability of plaster base panels (blue board) to act as a substrate for some veneer plasters.

Units of gypsum board are very heavy and can become unstable if proper stacking and handling procedures are not followed.

They should always be stored flat and evenly supported on a firm, dry, level and structurally sound floor. Risers must be vertically aligned from top to bottom to prevent sagging or bowing.

Contact one of our Drywall Experts about scheduling your drywall products delivery close to the time when you will be installing, so that storage problems are minimized.
