High Strength Lite 1/2 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. Gypsum Board is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from pre printed markings The pre-printed marking at 16" and 24" on this drywall saved me lots of time on the install and was a pleasant surprise. Also being made in Michigan was an extra bonus. I am very happy with this product and will look for it in the future on my next project
