Q. What is the difference between the Owens Corning® Basement Finishing System™ and drywall?

A. There are many ways our system is different. Drywall can be extremely messy to put up, could create lots of dust that may be hazardous to the air quality in your home, and may take 3-4 times as long to put up as the Owens Corning® Basement Finishing System™. Drywall may easily dent if something is bumped against it; our walls are durable. Drywall may not resist mold or mildew that is common in basements, but the Owens Corning® Basement Finishing System™ does resist mold and mildew. And, drywall seals off your access to pipes and wiring. The Owens Corning® Basement Finishing System™ walls are easily removed so you can get to pipes and wires without any damage to your basement.
