Paperless drywall undoubtedly has its benefits. For example, due to its use of fiberglass instead of paper, it is designed to provide better protection against mold growth. This makes it ideal to use in areas such as basements and bathrooms which see higher levels of moisture. Paperless drywall is also sturdier due to its fiberglass covering. This means it will incur less damage.
So, while we can clearly see the benefits of paperless drywall, are there any drawbacks to using it? It is generally more expensive than traditional drywall and it might not be easily available everywhere. Perhaps one of the biggest concerns with it, however, is that due to its increased strength from the fiberglass covering, it is not so easy to install. It is also harder to have as smooth of a finish as traditional drywall provides. Another factor is that, because it is made of fiberglass, some irritation could occur cause to the skin, making the installation of it a little more unpleasant.
To review, then, we can see that paperless drywall, like many newer products, has both its benefits as well as its drawbacks.
