Choosing PVC panels as one of the lightweight drywall alternatives

29 September, 2023

Like its name, drywall truly works well when it is dry. When this material becomes wet, filled with moisture, remove to avoid issues with mold, swelling, and staining. While several areas can forestall water invasion and lessening openness to dampness, areas that are inclined to preeminent degrees of stickiness, flooding, or different turbulent weather conditions are bound to face issues with damp drywall. Drywall when wet is very quickly compromised, so those managing higher levels of dampness consistently should think about options that confront humidity effectively, like PVC wall panels. Businesses that installed drywall once are gradually shifting towards installing vinyl panels as a lifetime solution.

Flexible and easy to install PVC panels

Drywall or vinyl covered drywall requires mudding, taping and painting whereas PVC panels require just one process. You might sometimes introduce PVC wall panels over existing drywall at times. Duramax panels are easy to install compared to drywall as the latter is heavier and involves complicated installation. Drywall is not as flexible as PVC panels. The vinyl panels are attached directly to the studs with hidden fasteners. The panels do not have backers unlike FRP panels not allowing any moisture to penetrate through the surface of the panels. The surface of the panels has interlocking tongues and grooves that resist moisture from leaking into them. Prior to installation, the panels are cut right to shape and they do not require replacement anytime soon.

Waterproof vinyl panels

PVC panels are 100% waterproof. The surface of the panels does not attract moisture so the walls remain dry and healthy. The vinyl panels are 100% mold-resistant so they prevent the growth of mold and mildew on the surface. Drywall is not moisture-resistant at all. The moisture-filled gypsum board cracks under pressure. Do not treat wet gypsum because it is not long-lasting. There will be recurrent mold-growth and rotting. Replace the damaged drywall sheets with PVC panels.
