Would i be able to use this in a mobile home for cielinhs and walls?

Asked by: KimberC
That entirely depends on what size of joists you have as well as size of the studs. If you have a newer MH, with 2x4 or 2x6 walls, that wouldn't be an issue. Even if it's older MH with 2x2 wall studs, it would hold it. Ceilings are a more complicated mess altogether. The width, joist size, and spacing all come into play. 12' wide or less on 16" centers with 2x4 joists would be fine with the ultralight board. 14' wide or less on 24" spacing with 2x6 would also be ok. Any of the older MH's with 1x2 "bowed rafters/joists" would NOT support any drywall for very long regardless of spacing or width. Now, if you do have 2x4 on 24" spans or something wider.... You could screw a board from the center point of the joist up to the peak of the rafter. This would keep the joist from blowing by using the inherent strength of a triangle. In essence you would be creating a "truss". Now you are still taking a risk if you live in heavy snow load area or if you have multiple layers of roofing. These all play into live and dead loads on the rafters themselves. However, I have never had a roof or ceiling fail doing this, and I have done it many times over 20+ years and that was using standard weight drywall. Basically, it's proceed with caution and at own risk.

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.
