Installing drywall in a room with a vaulted ceiling is almost the same as doing it in lower ceilings, although the work may require scaffolding to be able to work high in the air. If you’re new to installing drywall, it is best to hire a professional for complex projects, especially for professional installers of drywall to often have and are familiar with the scaffolding necessary, so they will be comfortable working in high ceilings.


The vaulted ceilings come in many varieties. The square roofs – roofs that have a familiar way known to many American households box, are the easiest to convert into drywall. However, many vaulted ceilings employ complex angles and other complicated to increase the aesthetic appeal of a room functions. For example, some homes have high halls that have long obtuse angles, which run the length of the room.


For high vaulted ceilings, you may need to buy or rent scaffolding. You need one high enough so you can work over your head comfortably without stretch too. It is also possible to use ladders and planks, but balancing on them is more difficult than it is on the scaffolding, which has a work area with a large and stable base, Note that installing drywall usually requires three people, two to hold the board and another to screw it – so that scaffolds must be able to support the weight of all. You can rent scaffolding on a professional level tool rental stores and some retail hardware stores. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure that the scaffolding is installed correctly.

Angles complex

Essentially, installing drywall in a vaulted ceiling requires that the table is cut to the correct size and then adheres to the wood frame with drywall screws. If a project has many complex angles, it is essential to measure carefully cut each table in the correct size. The goal is to install the boards so that they form angles equal and consistent. If you install two tables together that are of slightly different sizes, the angle will be irregular. While it is possible to hide some twisted angles during drywall finishing, the most effective method is to measure each table carefully and only install it once you’re sure it will form a right angle and uniform.

Marking lines

When you’re working near a ceiling, it may be difficult to see the big picture. For this reason, many professional installers of drywall mark a chalk line along the difficult angles to help during installation. To do this, make a friend hold one end of the chalk line at the end of a difficult angle. Hold your end so that the chalk line is straight. Pull the line and then release it to crash into the roof, leaving a long mark. During installation, cut and install drywall to match the chalk line. This ensures even and straight installation.
