Just because something has been used for years doesn't mean that it is the best thing to use. This is exactly the case with putting drywall in your basement. Drywall is great in many places around your home but it can act as a sponge for moisture which lets mold and mildew breed in it. Since basements are naturally humid, moist areas this makes drywall a pretty poor choice to put in your basement and we at TBF of WNY don't use it.
What do we use for walls in basements? We install our EverLast Wall Panels, which are absolutely fantastic! They have been engineered to be moisture resistant, and won't support mold or mildew. They are self-insulated too, which keeps your basement warmer. How great is that? Find out more about our EverLast Wall Panels on this page of our website.
We recently installed our EverLast Wall Panels in a basement in Corfu, NY. In the photo below you can see that the basement installation isn't fully finished but that the walls are smooth and very modern looking. Drywall doesn't look that good.
