drywall around exterior door

I have to replace some interior damaged drywall around my back door. I live in calgary, so during the winter there is the issue of condensation as the cold air comes in when the door is opened as well as snow melting on the floor. Any advice on what kind of drywall I should use? Should I put j-beads on the bottom and sides? http://www.plasticomponents.com/prod...=3&SubCatId=17

Welcome Harlan Craig, to the best darn DIY'r site on the web.

You say there is a condensation problem from the door being openned, are you sure its from that and not a lack of insulation around the door framing.

If you have covered it all over you should check for insulation missing between the door framing and the wall studs, usually some "Great Stuff" will help out in tight spots.



When its all said and done there is usually more said than done
