Moisture Resistant Drywall

Post by JohnJWJR » Sat Apr 15, 2017 10:36 pm

I'm gonna be doing a complete renovation of my bathroom, ripping everything out to the studs. For the walk in shower I'll be using the Schluter-Kerdi Membrane, I want to use a moisture resistant drywall instead of concrete board, am I ok with "green board" or should I be using a different product, and what thickness would you recommend

Moisture resistant drywall is just fine under Kerdi. You want to use 1/2" drywall.

Yes, the moisture resistant drywall will be good to use.

can you not use Kerdi Board as you are using Schluter products?

Yes you can use Kerdiboard instead of drywall with Kerri fabric over it

Up front cost is more expensive and you may need to add some extra framing support. On the upside I think it is quicker then Kerdi fabric over drywall.

That is a good decision. Moisture resistant drywall helps to prevent the growth of mold.
