Tripower, you're the one who poorly worded the question. No need to be rude to AtlanticWBConst, who was simply trying to help you.

Sure, I'll admit that I worded the question poorly but a little common sense is in order here. You can simply ask for clarification...

Drywall on a concrete floor


What Buletbob says is very true. Although we have many experts here, we have more people that know very little or absolutely nothing about how the rooms and systems in their home go together. Most of us that spend a lot of time answering DIYers' questions take nothing for granted and make no assumptions about the knowledge base of the people we're trying to help.

OK once again, use a little common sense, and try to respond to the OP other than:

Are you serious? Don't even attempt to install drywall on any floor...anywhere.
Rather ask; "I don't think I understand what you are trying to do here....how and where are you mounting your drywall?"

Drywall on a concrete floor


my 1st thought on reading your inquiry was ' wtf ? ' however i've been inform'd that's rude based on history & our shared experiences in forums that're frequented by h/o's & diy-ers, his response wasn't unexpect'd OR rude, imn-s-hfo,,, on occasion, i too, have responded abruptly especially when a inquiry's post'd asking ' how much ...... ? ' albeit rarely

tip o' the hat to 'mite

Drywall on a concrete floor


ok if you ment that you want to put drywall on a concrete wall then i have a solution. You can take drywall mud and coat the wall with it and yes it does work and if it is done right it looks just like regular drywall.

Multiple people with experience ALL thought you were putting drywall on the floor. Be clear in what you are trying to do & you will receive better answers. Pictures are worth a thousand words
