I use Dense Armor fiberglass drywall by GP. Fiberglass mesh tape and their mud for that product.

Wear long sleeves when hanging or handling it.

No organic material to mold even if it gets soaked.

Re: Mold Resistant Sheetrock?


I don't know toss' all about drywall but 8 months ago I finished a job in a reno of a 9000 square foot house that suffered sever mold problems. Part of the house used regular drywall which was all torn out and replaced, the rest had a shiny foil back drywall which the mold didn't touch.

Be sure to use mold resistant tape as well as wallboard. The Corning product works great and I spray the interior spaces with a borate and anti-freeze mix (glycol) that stops mold, dry rot, and even termites in their tracks, should a leak develop.

You will probably be getting more

Re: Mold Resistant Sheetrock?


I would use a good paint or sealer instead of purchasing mold resistant sheet rock which can be expensive, not to mention once it is attached via screws or nails, the mold resistant surface is no longer covering the entire sheet, thus it is still suseptible to mold.

MR is greenboard, it is moisture resistant, not Mold resistant, not even sure if MR is available as it has been replaced with XP (barney board) it is Mold resistant as well as Moisture resistant.

The reason denshield will cost more than MR, is because it is a better product.

You might want to rethink this.

Re: Mold Resistant Sheetrock?


I always tried not to form opinions
without facts.
Guess I should rethink my position....
