In 1902, USG created the North American building materials industry with the invention of USG Sheetrock Brand Gypsum Panels. Today, USG is a global leader of a broad portfolio of innovative building products and systems that bring inspiration and new levels of performance to our customers and enable them to create outstanding spaces where people live, work and play.
Our family of products are used in everything from major commercial developments and residential housing to simple home improvements, helping contractors and architects deliver high quality and innovative designs.
USG, through its subsidiary L&W Supply, is also the nations largest distributor of drywall and related building products. L&W Supply serves professional contractors through a network of more than 160 locations and strives to be their preferred source for all quality products and services.
This project utilized USG’s portfolio of interior and exterior building products to meet several performance specifications for River Vine Vineyards. Products and solutions fully came together on this project with the help of L&W Supply, the distributor in the United States. Together USG and L&W Supply offered full-service support at all stages of construction from design to delivery to installation.
How it Works
For the interior walls and ceilings, USG Imperial Gypsum Base Panels and USG Sheetrock Brand UltraLight Gypsum Base Imperial Panels were utilized. USG Imperial Gypsum Base Panels provide a large rigid base for the application of veneer plasters. USG Imperial Gypsum Base Panels are installed like drywall and provide a solid foundation for veneer plaster applications.
USG Sheetrock Brand UltraLight Gypsum Base Imperial Panels are the lightest 1/2-inch thick gypsum base for veneer plaster available. USG Sheetrock Brand UltraLight Gypsum Base Imperial Panels are engineered specifically for the direct application of veneer plasters and their special multi-layered laminated face paper control water absorption, provide maximum plaster bond and resist sag.
On the exterior, USG Securock Brand Glass-Mat Sheathing and USG Securock Brand Gypsum-Fiber Roof Boards were used. USG Securock Brand Glass-Mat Sheathing is a noncombustible, moisture- and mold-resistant panel that offers an improved coated fiberglass facer mat to maximize coverage of air/water barrier systems. USG Securock Brand Gypsum-Fiber Roof Boards employ advanced technology in delivering an exceptionally strong, high-performance roof board for use in low-slope commercial roofing systems. Its unique, fiber-reinforced, homogenous composition gives the panel strength and water resistance through to the core. It provides exceptional bond and low absorption in adhered systems and offers sustainable design for all types of roofing systems.
