drywall in shower stall


My last comment was mainly for Spark Plug. Although it has been two years, there are still many who think Green Board is still a valid product. It is not.

Good information for all, though! I haven't attempted to tackle a bathroom project in a few years now and was thinking green board and red guard...interesting food for thought

You could use green board in that application as long as you covered it with Red Guard.

Before you do, take some time to apply Red Guard to a piece of wax paper, let it dry and then peel it off. Now drop it in a glass of water and watch what happens in a few hours. Drop a sample of Denshield, Kerdi or Nobel into water and see what happens instead.

Green board will fall apart faster than regular drywall when it gets wet long enough for it to wick through the "water resistant" face covering.

Since I don't have any of those products at my disposal, humor me...what happens?

Lol fair enough. When I actually go to do another project where I need it, maybe I'll have the motivation to go to the store and buy 4 different products for testing.
