Garage and Basement

Today's garages and basements do it all.

Garages act as storage units, car-parks and a place for utilities. That means heavy use and plenty of bumps and scrapes. Your walls need superior resistance to impact, cracks and penetrations from tools and sports gear. 

When finished correctly basements offer a wealth of extra living space for many purposes and activities. Whether that be a wine cellar, gym, man cave or playroom, these multi-activity spaces are a terrific way to provide a perfect spot to hang out and show off your design personality. 


CertainTeed has a full line of drywall finishing products that can be used throughout your home, including in your garage or basement.

Type X has special core additives to increase the natural fire resistance found in natural gypsum. In homes, Type X drywall is often required  by local building code on interior and exterior walls near furnaces and utility rooms and  is typically found on attached garage walls and ceilings that are adjacent to the main living area of the home.

Corners get their fair share of abuse in homes. According to an NAHB survey, drywall corner cracks and dents remain the number one reason for call backs. CertainTeed Corners integrate new technologies into our corners that outperforms metal beads. No dents, no need to pull and replace; meaning fewer repairs and longer lasting corners.
