Drywall may all look the same sitting in stacks in the store but they are very different in performance, strength and ecological impact
There is a lot more to choosing drywall than one might think, and as it finds its way into pretty much every building made, a lot of resources are used in the process.
In the Edelweiss House, we used CGC Sheetrock® Brand Ultralight gypsum panels for an easier build and a lower carbon footprint. It's lightweight, made with synthetic gypsum and has recycled paper on both sides.
In addition, we used CGC Dust Control® Brand Drywall Compound which meant we were exposed to less airborne particles during sanding than we would have been with other brands.
