Brown Drywall
1 Attachment(s)
At one time was drywall available with brown paper on both sides? I removed some paneling and the was behind it. Wasn't sure if over time it turned the color or what?

I have seen this. Sometimes in wet areas they would use shellac or varnish to water proof the drywall. This was before the drywall we have today i.e. green board. This looks like this may be it.

Lucky we have green boards today. :)

I've seen drywall turn brown like that from age. Drywall paper isn't exactly made to be left exposed, so who knows what it absorbs from the atmosphere. Formaldehyde from the glue in the panelling?
