Paperless drywall certainly has its advantages. For example, it is designed to provide better protection against the growth of mold. This makes it ideal for use in areas such as bathrooms and basements which see higher levels of moisture. Paperless drywall is also stronger due to its fiberglass covering. This means you will see less damage.
So, while its clear to see the benefits of paperless drywall, are there any disadvantages to using it? It is more expensive than traditional drywall and might not be available everywhere. But, perhaps one of the biggest concerns with it is that due to its increased strength from its fiberglass covering, it is not as easy to install and does not provide as smooth of a finish as traditional drywall does. Also, because of being made of fiberglass, it could cause some irritation to the skin, making it a little more unpleasant to install.
As we can see, paperless drywall, like many newer products, has both its advantages as well as its disadvantages.
