4 Types of Sheetrock You Need to Know About, West Adams, Colorado

For over a decade, the trusted contractors at Marquez Drywall have provided a wide range of drywall installation and repair services for local homeowners and businesses in Thornton, CO.

Here, these experienced contractors explain everything you need to know about the various types of sheetrock available for your home construction needs:

  • sheetrock Thornton COWater-Resistant: This type of sheetrock is best suited for rooms exposed to high humidity and moisture, such as bathrooms and kitchens. While the standard sheetrock will warp in these conditions, water-resistant sheetrock is protected by a wax coating, making it more durable. 
  • Fire-Resistant: The most expensive of all the types, fire-resistant sheetrock is designed to withstand flames longer than typical drywall. It’s commonly used in apartments to prevent a fire from easily spreading to other units. It is also frequently used in kitchens, garages, and utility rooms.
  • Insulated: This type of sheetrock is typically used in parts of the home that don’t always maintain a consistent temperature, such as a garage. It’s made of polyfoam to prevent heat from escaping in the winter and keep the area cooler during the summer months. This type of sheetrock is also useful in areas with high humidity, as the material is less prone to warping.
  • Cement Board: Available as waterproof or water-resistant, cement board sheetrock is most effective when used for a home's exterior, or in the bathroom and kitchen because of its durability. Cement board also makes a great backing for tiling because it offers a smooth surface.
