Recently, hotels, restaurants, and educational institutes that seek to have a soundproof facility have looked to the drywall and building plaster market.

In residential properties, drywalls are thought to be critical in simultaneously improving the aesthetic appeal and managing interior heat through thermal insulation provided by false ceilings.

The limitations of drywall encourage the use of alternatives

There are certain inherent disadvantages in using drywall. Drywall is somewhat delicate and carries a risk of being damaged. In addition, drywall needs skilled manpower for installation and this increases the fixed cost. Couple this with the fact that drywall mud sanding is an unwanted procedural step because of the fine dust generated and it is not hard to understand why drywalls are becoming less popular.

Humidity can impact drywalls substantially by causing the growth of fungi that can be a health hazard. There are limitations to the temporary re-fixing and removal of drywall for interior repairs such as plumbing work. Thus, alternatives that are more beneficial are increasingly being sought out. For e.g. Wahoo walls are easy to install, reducing the initial cost and they also have greater heat resistance because of a particular material thickness.

Textured wall panels can be easily fitted over existing walls as they are aesthetically superior when compared to drywalls. Real wood veneer paneling also looks better appearance wise than drywall and the accessories available permit easy installation of the former.
