Drywall hanging and finishing can be messy. You could end up with drywall mudd on the finished surface of your doors. Not to mention the dust from sanding is very fine and will end up in every nook and cranny of the doors.
A good sequence to follow would be:
- Electrical, Plumbing and Heating
- Drywall – Tape and Finish
- Install Doors and Trim
Installing stained and finished doors prior to drywall would leave them prone to being scratched, dinged, dented and would be very rough on the surface finish of the door. If at all possible wait until the drywall is completed. You could possibly remove the doors themselves to protect them, however, that would create a lot of extra unnecessary work.
When Should You Begin Hanging Interior Doors Before Drywall?
That being said, often times, such as a storage room or in a partially finished basement, there will be one or both sides of a door installation that won’t have drywall installed.
