How many coats on new drywall?


Just wrapped up my 2nd coat over the purple mold resistant drywall. It looks pretty good. Any need for a 3rd?

How many coats on new drywall?


Well, I am ahead of the game...I put two coats on!!!

This is going into a laundry room and 1/2 bath in a walk out bathroom. Do I need to have the paint shop add anything to the paint to avoid mold?
