Customer Questions & Answers

Can this be used for ceiling?

Can this be used for ceiling?
Asked by: BJ
Quoted from the USG web page for Sheetrock brand Firecode Core (Type C) 5/8" gypsum board: "Systems using USG Sheetrock® Brand Firecode® C Gypsum Panels qualify for fire ratings of up to 4 hours in walls, 3 hours in ceilings and 4 hours for column protection." So YES, it can be used for ceilings. Might not be fun to get it on the ceiling. It's heavy. Use a panel lift. If you look up the "submittal sheet" you'll see the 5/8 Firecode C is "Listed by UL for use in floor/ceiling and roof/ceiling assemblies." Below that a table shows it is approved for a single layer on ceilings with max frame spacing of 24" OC, installed perpendicular to framing. (For walls it can be installed either parallel or perpendicular to framing.) Further down it also shows approval for a double layer on ceilings. (Must be one heck of a ceiling.) Hope that helps.

is the 70.4 lb per sheet or for two
Asked by: 100rocks
On the USG website, the "submittal sheet" for Firecode C 5/8" gypsum board shows weight: "2.5 lb./sq. ft. (12.2 kg/sq. m.)." A 4'x8' sheet, which is 32 square feet, should weigh about 80 pounds. It may be one or two pounds less due to the taper on the long edges.

Can this be used in a garage?

Asked by: Kat
Yes. It is required in some locations of some garages, but it can be used anywhere. This thickness is recommended on ceilings where the rafters/joists are on 24" centers to avoid sagging, and it also reduces sound transmission through any walls or ceilings it is mounted on. If your garage already has electrical service, you may need to change the mud rings on the boxes to accommodate the thicker drywall, but sometimes you only have to back the fixtures out of the boxes a bit to accommodate this.

Is this board waterproof and suitable for tiling?

Looking to rebuild a couple of walls in our shower.
Asked by: Islander
This board is NOT waterproof, or even mold-resistant, like green board, but with proper treatment it can be tiled over in a shower. To do so you will need to coat the drywall with RedGuard, and then tile over that. If you want it truly waterproof, they specify that a thickness of 30 mils is necessary (.030). This almost always means two coats, and this stuff is not cheap. It can also make a serious mess if you are not careful. What makes it so tough on the wall also makes it tough to clean up. Contrary to popular opinion, Hardiebacker or other cement boards (like Duroc) are NOT waterproof, they are only water resistant. The only two certified waterproof products of this sort that I am aware of are RedGuard and Schulter's Kerdiboard. Both are very good, but expensive. Usually the water resistant properties of the various cement boards are enough if the tile is installed and grouted properly, especially if epoxy grout is used and installed properly. It really comes down to how bombproof you want your installation and what budget you have to do so.

This board is easily scored & snapped, but you still have to cut the back facing paper so be careful. I learned to cut from the front & snap it then cut the backing paper on the other side. This would best be used with a helper available. I'm a big guy & it was awkward to move & work with alone, I did it but it took some time. Great Product & I have still more to buy & hang.

After 30 years, the old one was too beat up to save. Just had to cut the appropriate size of sheetrock. This 5/8 sheetrock was plenty heavy and strong to make the access panel. I also gave the new piece of sheetrock a little bit of texture with some all purpose topping compound. Then I primed and painted the top and bottom and all the edges. Looks brand new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this sheetrock to replace damaged and warped old drywall in my dining room. Due to its thickness and fire code approved we noticed less heat transfer from the attic. All pieces (16 total) were all in great shape and square. Screws have a good bite on the panels and mudding/taping was a breeze. The panels weigh about 70lbs a piece, but thanks to the rented drywall lift (at the Home Depot tool rental center) it was easy getting the job done!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product I don't understand how people give a product a bad review on Sheetrock when you purchase it and it's damaged just exchange it. Some people can never be happy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay drywall but paper is poor. As drywall goes it's fine, but the quality of the paper seems to be poor. I had quite a few tears and bumps around screw heads that required extra work to smooth out. Not every one, but some would go in clean while others would not no matter how I fine-tuned my screw gun. The tears were small with only small bits of paper coming up around the screw, but it still required extra attention to fix. A few spots created a small bump in the drywall around the screw that had to be hammered back in. Beveled edges seemed more problematic than the field. No problems at all with other thicknesses and brands of drywall on the same project; they all drove perfectly clean. Not thrilled. The next time I need 5/8" I'll try another brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drywall Purchase Drywall was packaged and ready for pick-up. Loaded onto truck with ease. Product was clean and ready for install. Smooth lines and square. This made installation less of a hassle. Because the drywall was firecode core 5/8", product does have some weight to it. Make sure you have help for moving and installing of product.
