Question

using moisture-resistant sheetrock in dry locations


i was wondering if there are any issues with using green sheetrock in dry locations and combining it with regular. just because i have some leftovers green. i think it would be fine cause the green is just a superset of the regular, correct?

Unless it's a ceiling application; 1/2" board = 12"o.c. framing: http://publicecodes.citation.com/ico...002_par013.htm

He's referring to that it's not recommended to hang from ceilings (maybe OK with 12'' centers instead of 16''). It's not as strong as regular rock in that regard. Although i'm sure a small patch wouldn't be a big deal.
