Drywall vs Paneling

We always recommend to our clients to update their manufactured homes in order to bring more value to their home.  One of the most common and valuable additions would be to replace paneling with drywall. It might be a little bit expensive upgrade but it will save money in a long run. Drywall seals walls and ceilings much better than paneling and has lower heat transfer coefficient. It means house will be warmer during the winter and cooler in the summer. Here are some additional benefits of putting in drywall:

  • Drywall is easier to modify, replace or repair.
  • Drywall is easier to maintain
  • Drywall has longer life period
  • Drywall is fire resistance
  • Drywall has better noise insulation

If money is an issue, we recommend to do one room at a time to break up renovation expenses.

Also, it is very important to hire professional handyman or contractor to do the job as poorly done job will not do much for you. If you live in Allentown or Scranton area please refer to our website Info page for handyman and contractors info that we use to help us with our projects (click here).
