Different Types of Drywall

Do you have a house full of that outdated popcorn ceiling? Popcorn ceilings fell out of style in the 1980s and 1990s and have since been replaced with a smoother and more modern look. The textured look became less popular as homeowners and builders moved towards a cleaner and more minimalist aesthetic. If you are looking to replace your popcorn ceiling, consider these three common types of drywall:

  • Regular drywall: Also known as gypsum board, it is the standard material used for interior walls and ceilings.
  • Fire-resistant drywall: Made with special gypsum and additives, it is used in fire-rated wall assemblies, such as those required for stairwells, garages, and some kitchens.
  • Moisture-resistant drywall: This type of drywall has a green paper facing that is impregnated with a wax-like substance, making it resistant to moisture and ideal for high-humidity areas like bathrooms and laundry rooms.
