What Is Drywall?  

Drywall is a common, inexpensive construction material that comes in large, rigid sheets. It is created from plywood, wood pulp, cement board, or gypsum. Drywall is used to form the flat surfaces of walls and ceilings, and is a more convenient alternative to plaster. Drywall sheets have tapered edges joined together to form a shallow recess for joint compound and drywall tape. This creates invisible, finished joints that are smooth and easy to paint over. There are seven common types of drywall used in residential homes:  

  • Regular Drywall or WhiteboardThis is used in walls and ceilings. 
  • Green BoardThis is used in bathrooms and kitchens. 
  • Blue BoardThis is used for plaster backing. 
  • Paperless DrywallThis is used in areas that need extreme water resistance and long-lasting durability.  
  • Purple DrywallThis is used for mold and mildew resistance in wet areas. 
  • Type X DrywallThis is used for fire resistance in high-risk areas. 
  • Soundproof DrywallThis is used for soundproofing rooms.
