View Full Version : Drywall over concrete

03-25-2003, 03:19 PM
Does anyone have any experience applying drywall directly onto a concrete basement wall? I've run into a situation where a concrete wall needs to be covered with drywall but because of space restrictions the wall can't be furred-out. The USG construction handbook talks a little bit about it, but I was wondering if you could use a subfloor or drywall adhesive to attach the drywall without fastners? Also, would you use green board? Thanks in advance.

Ive done some sheetrock over concrete on small walls with liguid nails heavy duty with no call backs (hint:clean concrete and clean sheetrock and lots of glue big heavy globs to compansate for uneven walls)Good Luck
