Drywall in unheated cottage


I am considering installing drywall in my unheated cottage where temperatures can go from +5 in the daytime to -30 at night (winter). Will the drywall withstand the change in temperature?

Drywall in unheated cottage


Biggest problem I have seen is the drywall holding on to paint---and yes---the drywall can stand the temperature shifts--but you must paint it correctly---a high quality primer first and then two coats of a high quality paint.

Read up on installing drywall---and the three different muds used for a good taping job---Mike---
