Customer Questions & Answers

can this b used in bathroom? is it like blue board? moisture and mold resistant?

Asked by: Anonymous
Use green (or blue) board for walls. Use regular (this stuff) for the ceiling. Green board on the ceiling traps moisture and will be problematic.

Can ultra light be used on a ceiling?

Asked by: Anonymous
Probably the best application of this product would be ceilings. Since it is lightweight, it would be easier holding it overhead, but be carefull. It is lightweight, but it may break easily if you are not careful in handling it.

Can one panel be transported in an empty SUV ?

Asked by: Chris
For a 2015 Honda Pilot, you will not be able to do so. The 3rd row cup holder lack one extra inch! It is only 47" wide. For a 2016 Ford Explorer, the trunk is even narrower by a few inches. Consider buying (and spending a little more money) on either a 3x5 board, a HD delivery ($60-70), or renting a truck from HD ($20 / 75 minutes)

Is this stuff literally supposed to be .5" thick?

I bought some other stuff (http://www.homedepot.com/p/American-Gypsum-1-2-in-x-4-ft-x-8-ft-Gypsum-Drywall-5500081/202084551?keyword=752278624081) that was supposed to be .5" thick and it measures at 3/8" thick. I'm new to drywalling but I thought the thickness was supposed to be true to size. Does this stuff measure literally at .5" thick? Thanks!
Asked by: JT
Yes, except for the tapered edges.

UltraLight 1/2 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. Gypsum Board is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 81.

Each board was consistent, so that was my major factor. However, when cutting the board, at least one set was excessively chalky. Not too bad as it my have been the storage of the one set of boards. Ultralight may be in reference to the old Gypsum boards, but it was still heavy that my 14 year old still had issues controlling it when he carried them. When screwing in the ends of the boards, there was still "strength" to hold the board (1/2 inch in, some angled) No boards broke when I had to bow them slightly when going down the basement stairs. The boards were very thirsty and it soaked up the primer, but I only used a 2 gallons more that expected for a 26 x 25 room (Spray gun application)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product. Works as described. No flaws or defects. This product is basically drywall as described. Nothing special either good or bad, just drywall with no noticeable defects. It is "ultralight", which I guess is a relative statement, in that it's not light, just a little lighter than other drywall.

The contractors repaired the very large areas quickly but I am finishing the smaller areas because I know what I want and the gypsum board allows me to accomplish my goals.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lighter does not always mean stronger The sheet is somewhat lighter than the standard drywall sheets, but their claim that it is stronger is incorrect. I kept wondering why it was so easy to fracture corners from normal handling and break through edges when installing drywall screws. I was surprised at how easily the material crumpled instead of breaking up into larger chunks. So, I snapped a piece in half (much easier than standard 1/2" drywall) and noticed the manufacturer injected air into the base material. That will make it lighter, but also much weaker.
