Job Description for Drywaller
Drywallers typically work on construction sites to install drywall on walls and prepare them for painting. The materials can sometimes be heavy, so drywallers must have some physical fitness, and necessary tools may include tape-measures, plaster, spacklers, buckets, drywall, sanders, and paint. Personal protective gear may also be necessary when working on construction sites.Read More...
Drywallers usually work indoors on remodeling projects or construction of new buildings which may be unfinished.

A high school diploma may be a minimum requirement for this position, and some employers may require special certification while others provide on-the-job training. Drywallers typically work during regular business hours or when weather permits in cases involving unfinished buildings.
