EverLast™ Basement Wall Panels are NOT like drywall. Drywall with fiberglass insulation supports mold growth, will damage from moisture, and will lose insulation value when wet. They are made from 2 1/2 inch thick rigid foam insulation with 1/2 inch thick cement board cladding. The cement board is finished with an off-white vinyl surface treatment.
The innovative SilverGlo™ insulation integrated into each panel is designed with graphite-infused expanded polystyrene insulation (EPS), which makes it 24% more efficient per-inch than standard EPS insulation.
These innovative wall panels have won the CQIA Quality and Innovation Award from a chapter of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award for Performance Excellence.
Drywall has become one of the most commonly used products in North America because of its affordability.
Drywall is a product made mostly of paper and gypsum. While this keeps lets it be cheaply produced, these materials offer no structural support or insulation. In order to properly install drywall, you will need to also install wood frames and studs as well as insulation. Most contractors install common fiberglass insulation behind drywall. Drywall, wood, and fiberglass are all made from organic materials that will support mold growth if they are ever exposed to the humid conditions commonly found in basements.
Using drywall for the main floors of your home is fine because it is a dry and conditioned space. Your basement allows for outside air and moisture to enter it through the porous foundation. When you combine this with leaking plumbing and water seepage, you can see how drywall in a basement is a huge mistake.
