Drywall


You should never use regular drywall in a bathroom / wet area. Either green/blue board or cement board, depending on the application...

No sheet rock is mold proof it is mold resistant. And if humidity gets behind the sheet rock then you will have mold problem!

Use only cement board in areas such as shower and tub enclosures. DO NOT use ANY kind of sheetrock, unless it is water proofed in some way.

No greenboard in wet areas, no vapor retarder behind it, no 24" o.c. ceiling framing; http://publicecodes.citation.com/ico...002_par014.htm
