In North America, five-eighths-inch-thick drywall with a one-hour fire-resistance rating is often used where fire resistance is desired.

Position the cleats flush with the face of the existing studs and install them with drywall screws or nails. We can install, repair, and restore drywall throughout your home, ensuring that it lasts for many years to come. One has you using a jab-saw (drywall saw) to expand the hole to a small rectangle.
