It is made from gypsum, which is a naturally occurring mineral in plentiful supply (making it an eco-friendly choice). It goes by many names such as wallboard, sheetrock, gypsum panels, because it can be used in many capacities including interior walls and ceilings. They offer durability, aesthetics, insulation capabilities, as well as reduction in mold, flammability, and water absorption.
After framing, drywall installation will start giving your space a sense of completeness. They are attached in panels to the metal or wooden studs to form interior walls.
