The Different Types of Drywall

With so many types of renovation materials on the market, it can be hard to know which product would work best for your needs. Drywall is no exception. Since there are different thicknesses and types available for drywall repair, you need consider how the material will be used to make sure it will fit your project. Read on as Universal Roofing and Exteriors discusses the different types of drywall.

The Different Types of Drywall


One of the most common types, regular drywall is used for most ceilings in residential properties. It’s probably the most economical and also comes in different sizes, from three eighths of an inch to one inch. We recommend homeowners only use regular drywall in areas that are not susceptible to moisture, heat or mold.

Green Board

This type of drywall is typically covered with green, water-resistant paper and is perfect for areas with moist conditions, such as kitchens or bathrooms. Drywall painting providers note that is type of drywall not waterproof, so it’s not a good option for areas that come into direct contact with water.

Blue Board 

Also called plaster baseboard, blue board drywall is often used for veneer plastering thanks to its special absorption characteristics. It is water and mold-resistant but not made for applications that involve mud. Blue board reduces noise and provides low emissions, making it ideal for both residential and commercial use.

In addition to these options, you can also choose from other types of drywall such as fire-resistant, eco-friendly, and soundproofing drywall.
