Drywall Types and Applications
There are different types of drywall for different applications. Drywall (also known as wallboard, gypsum board, plasterboard and Sheetrock, after a leading brand) consists of a core of gypsum coated on the both sides with paper. We pride ourselves on knowing which type of drywall to use for each application.
- Moisture-Resistant Drywall – Commonly called “green board” because of its green-paper face, moisture-resistant drywall is used primarily in bathrooms, basements, and around kitchen sinks and laundry rooms.
- Fire-Resistant Drywall – It is often recommended, and sometimes even required, in garages, rooms with furnaces and in multifamily buildings.
- Abuse-Resistant Drywall – Abuse-resistant drywall is most often used in commercial construction. The 5/8-inch thick panels are treated to better resist impact and penetration.
- Drywall thicknesses include 1/4″, 3/8″, 1/2″ (typical), 5/8″, and panel lengths range from 8 feet to 10 feet and can go as long as 16 feet. Panel widths are usually 48″ and the most common panel size you will find is a 4′x8′ panel in a 1/2″ thickness.
