How would you handle it if drywall got wet constantly? Drywall has numerous disadvantages, but the fact that it’s not water-resistant is the worst. Continuous seepage of moisture into drywall can cause it to become saturated and lose its structural integrity. The walls inside soak up the dampness and get damaged. Coating the damp area with spackle or paint won’t help it at all.
You need to switch to affordable drywall alternatives before you get mold and mildew growth on the walls and ceiling. Duramax PVC Panels are 100% waterproof so they do not allow any moisture to seep into the surface of the panels. The PVC boards remain unaffected by moisture. The panels are also covered with an anti-mold layer that prevents mold and mildew growth on the panels' surface.
Are you looking for lightweight drywall alternatives? The drywall is heavy so it is inconvenient to carry to transport. It is not flexible, so the boards do not bend. Drywall installation is also a complex process needing more than one installer. The drywall needs taping, mudding, and painting. Duramax PVC Panels are a lightweight drywall alternative. The panels are extremely lightweight so they are easy to transport. Vinyl panel installation requires a single contractor for installation. The PVC panels have tongues and grooves in an interlocking manner which prevent the invasion of moisture and humidity.
Vinyl-covered drywall is less effective than a complete PVC board. PVC has so many advantages compared to drywall or other wall coverings. Vinyl panels have a 100-year shelf life, whereas drywall lasts approximately 30-40 years. Duramax Panels are ASTM-certified, CFIA-certified and FDA-compliant. PVC panels are impact-resistant, whereas drywall is prone to damage.
Drywall contributes to landfill waste, decomposing into a pungent-smelling hydrogen sulfide gas. On the other hand, PVC panels are eco-friendly, have a low carbon footprint and can be recycled several times.
Choose complete PVC panels instead of vinyl drywall. Install 100% pure Duramax PVC Panels for your commercial interiors for a permanent solution. PVC panels are an alternative to drywall and other non-waterproof wall and ceiling panels.
