Dryfall for sure. I never understand how that is always a question on the PT.
Decks get dryfall.

Sure. You might want to kill any rust you see first. Or chase what burns through. First is better though.

You'll see it if it is there. A odd beam or so that was outside and scratched up. Also the sprinkler pipes. The unions and nineties and stuff they always rust through, I hit em wit a can of Binz first.

Spot prime anything suspect rust spots with a spray can of SW marine grade primer . Sometimes an air compressor will help with any slag or debris.

BM and SW both have good dryfalls. I would just go with the cheaper option. Also have a small tip for joists and larger one for the hard deck

Never count on Dryfall to fall dry no matter how high it is or whatever. I think that is what confuses resi guys about the Dryfall. It is just a name. Quite often it hits the ground wet no matter how high it is. Humidity and cold and stuff has to do wit it.

And hey weather it falls dry or not I cover the floor anyway wit plastic. Roll it up and toss it.

We're just talkin shop here.
I like to for sure if doable get a coat on the drywall first.
Hit the ceiling over the bare drywall it gets that grit that is too hard to sand down.
They still got to fire caulk at the ceiling line anyway?

Dryfall is an amazing product, definitely recommend it. Just check to make sure it'll stick, I've seen it fall off in sheets (deck issue not product). DTM would most likely be a cheaper method, but both are good
