Wet drywall?


Here's what happened...


I had a few sheets of greenboard in the back of my truck as I was replacing some sheetrock in the bathroom. While I was upstairs working, it started to rain/snow. The sheet was exposed to light rain for about 30 min. the sun came out almost imediatly after, and was nice and bright for the rest of the day.

the next day, once it was dry, I moved it from the truck inside. It looks like its okay (no visable signs of water stains or anything). It looks exactly like a new sheet of drywall should.

I know its common practice to wet drywall when bending it.

Is this sheet still any good?

Just make sure it's dry before you install it and you should be fine.

Hey pal,
As long as the wet drywalled dryed out and it was once only wet, it will be fine. As the other reply said also it is common practice to wet the rock before installing in some situations, round walls etc...
