What will increase home value more, using drywall or vinyl panels for finishing a basement?We are thinking of finishing about 1400 sq ft of basement. I know using drywall will be cheaper than those vinyl panels for basement walls but will one way add more value to my house over the other. (forget the cost a minute). The finished panels market themselves as mold-resistant, water-proof, etc so does that mean that they'd add more value that regular drywall.Does your answer change if the panels require that I use a drop ceiling?Thanks.ChaalzSeptember 02 2009 - Leesburg00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
