Greenboard or regular drywall in bathroom?

14 years ago

Help! I am remodeling my basement and putting in a new bathroom. The contractor has used blueboard for around the shower. I am using cultured marble as the surround and pan and blueboard is what the manufacturer has specified. For the rest of the bathroom, they have used regular drywall with a vapor barrier underneath. My sink backsplash and wall above the sink will be tiled. Is drywall okay or should I insist on cementbaord above the sink and greenboard in the rest of the bathroom? They plan on starting to paint next week. Help me!
