Installing PURPLE XP Drywall

It's happening! It is really, truly happening. We got drywall installed in the kids' joint bedroom!

I am beyond excited. For one, the room looks (and SOUNDS) amazing thanks to the PURPLE XP drywall expertly installed by Joe and his crew over at Bexar Essentials Remodeling.

But also, real talk time, my husband and I didn't have to install the drywall ourselves which is great since we are old and lazy.

It's so exciting to see a room filled with professionally hung drywall, all taped and sanded, and ready to paint!

And the sound-dampening? Amazing. Currently the kids are camped out on on old mattresses on the floor and they're STILL sleeping better than when the room was wall-to-wall wood paneling.

Turns out, the answer to all our “OMG GO TO SLEEP ALREADY” bedtime problems was installing PURPLE SoundBreak XP drywall!

Why We Love It

Sound-Dampening

I could yammer on all day about the importance of installing the right drywall for your remodeling projects. Please listen to me – I know from what I speak.

Planning on tiling your kitchen's backsplash? Get the right drywall.

Planning on doing drywall in a room you know will be taking a beating? Install the right drywall.

In our case, we live in a very small house and need all the noise-reduction we can get. So, when I heard about PURPLE SoundBreak XP drywall and how amazing it is at sound-dampening – I was in.

This drywall is different than others because it is designed with noise-reduction in mind. It's center has a layer of material specifically designed to absorb and dissipate noise which helps keep sound in (or out) of room where it matters most – like a baby’s nursery or child's bedroom.

And, I am happy to announce, I can now make microwave popcorn at night after the kids go to bed and Melanie can't hear it popping.

Which means, she can no longer scream from her bedroom every two minutes for an hour straight, “MOM, ARE YOU EATING POPCORN?!?!”.

And I can FINALLY read a freaking book with an evening snack in peace.

And that, my friends, makes PURPLE SoundBreak XP drywall THE BEST.

Ease Of Installation

Sure, sure. We hired our drywall installation out (to the awesome Bexar Essentials Remodeling) but I have also hung many a sheet of drywall on my own and PURPLE XP drywall makes it so, so easy.

For one, the product cuts well with a drywall knife or utility knife. No wavering or wobbling cuts – just clean, straight lines.

Also, the preprinted guides on the product are great! As a measuring-challenged person, I really appreciate those grid marks.

Excellent For Texas

I grew up helping my parents flip houses in Alaska and know all about picking the right dryall for insulation.

After moving to Texas though, I had to rework my drywall knowledge because the weather here is so different.

We were trying to keep the heat OUT and not in, we needed to consider humidity and mold, and fire is always a threat during extreme drought years.

Thank Beyonce for the gift of PURPLE XP high-performance drywall! This stuff is noise-reducing, fire-resistant, mold-resistant, mildew-resistant, and moisture-resistant.

Need a product specifically for water, sound-dampening, or normal everyday wear and tear? Whelp, PURPLE drywall has a product that can help ensure your walls are ready for your life.

If you want to do your renovation right, start with the walls.
