Drywall Gasket

Hi Everyone,Let me say I am only a 3rd Party verifier HERS-Rater and do not install or do any contracting work. I am looking to refer a better way to seal drywalls, especially inside walls.

It seems a better way to seal than Drywall Gasket from GreatStuff can foams. Like to know any other methods. AJSee More
