Mud Room

Stand strong against a rough-and-tumble lifestyle.

Depending on the season or day of the week, your family may come home toting cross-country skis, throwing off wet raincoats, or banging football gear against the wall. Purple products from National Gypsum are ready to help your walls tackle extreme daily wear and tear. Ask for Purple when you build or remodel, and enjoy drywall built to stand up to scrapes, scratches and scuffs. Your mud room will look newer longer – and that’s a score for the home team.
