My house was built in 1954 and my basement is done up with drywall that look likes wood paneling. Meaning it does not have wood paneling wallpaper on it. The drywall has grooves on it as wood paneling does. It took me by surprise even my contractor. What year was this style of drywall made? My contractor never saw this before and he has been in the business for 20 years.

I quizzed a Sydney drywall repairs contracter, and he said he had never seen any drywall like that in Sydney. And like your contractor, he has over 20 years experience in the industry.

Sounds like it would have taken a skillful tradesman a long time to complete, whenever it was that it was completed.

It may have been too long ago for anyone to know anything about it

So you don't think it was made the year of your house being built?
