mold and moisture resistant drywall

In your magazine you said a couple of different brands of mold and moisture resistant drywall tested the best. Where can I find these test results? Where I live everyone sells certainteed brand drywall. How does it compare?

Much more experience is needed with this relatively new product. Usually with new products, the manufacturers have their on "reliable" tests, which are designed to accelerate sales. True tests come from the contractors and homeowners.

Trevor,

After working with all colors of drywall; white, green, purple, yellow, I find there is negligible difference between them aside from the color and the price. I can tell you for sure that wetting any of them spells the same disaster for each.

Where were you fixin' to use this drywall?

Yes I am using the blue board called m2. I also used in my basement the dens armour plus fiberglass backed drywall but it costs 3 times as much and you have to skim coat it all.
