Moisture- and Mold-Resistance for Southern U.S. Construction
Mold occurs when oxygen and moisture interact with surfaces that provide organic material that supports its continued growth. Paper-faced or “regular” drywall is particularly prone as, once exposed to water, it stays wet for a long time.
Mold- and moisture-resistant drywall include different facers (also known as mats or backers) – usually a treated paper or fiberglass layer – designed to repel water from breaching the gypsum inside.
No matter where you live or build, mold must be considered. In areas with lots of moisture, from rain or other sources – like the Southern U.S. – mold is a real risk to be managed right from the start.
Cherokee Building Materials stocks many mold-resistant drywall products, from industry leaders like Georgia-Pacific® and USG™, including, but not limited to:
