Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Evanjms Saved the job
I'm a DIY'er and am rebuilding our master shower as part of our bathroom renovation. I decided and had already purchased "1/2 inch" Hardibacker cement board, only to find out that it's not quite a true 1/2 inch, but a little less. This was causing problems where the Hardibacker was not meeting up flush with the bottom of the existing sunken shower walls, or with the rest of the regular 1/2 inch drywall outside of the shower. Straitflex shims are sturdy, easy to cut and staple, and are exactly 1/16 of an inch apiece, which allowed me to stack them easily on my existing studs to bring the Hardi up flush to the other surfaces. MY ONLY COMPLAINT: These things should be stocked at the store! Had to wait for them to be shipped to my house. Otherwise, the product is excellent and was a lifesaver. The big box of 100 shims was plenty enough for both of our bath renos.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Yazsgranny Great Drywall Shims
These Drywall Shims are absolutely wonderful. I can not express how pleased I am to have them. They are ideal for all large renovations or repairs. Whenever there is a large area that needs repairing with possible water damage to studs, it is almost impossible to accomplish without replacing the studs or employing the shims. As far as I am concerned, shims is the option for me. My weight bearing jousts are in good shape so I'm sistering all and/or any weakened studs. Great product and I certainly recommend for any large renovation or repair.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeLikesIt Great to get the Wall Straight
These Drywall Shims help to floating butt-joints and framing when they are irregularities. They are easy to install. The shims can be installed by screws, nails or staples to the wood framing members to help make the wall straight. You can layer them to get that prefect wall straight. It comes in 100 per box and comes in lengths of 36 in. and 45 in..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mohiddin Very usefull for any drywall project
This product is very helpfull for any drywall project , i have ordered these shims as i was drywalling my 900SFT basement and these shims saved time around any wood studs that are not aligned with other ones, These shims also helped to get the slight slope for Butt Joints that helps during taping an mudding.Initally i was tryiing to order RockSplicer or trmtex butt board for butt joints but they are very expensive.This shims has saved time and money these are just cardboard product but thats what required for drywall aligning.Just follow the images on the Box how they can help buttjoints and regular misaligned studs.Over all nice product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jordan simple but great product
I am currently in the process of turning a barn built in the 1860's into a finished work space. The studs were all rough cut lumber and are extremely uneven when comparing how far out each stud sticks in comparison to the neighboring stud. This product was EXTREMELY helpful in the process of dry walling the wall and ceiling. Super easy, just stack up as many pieces as you need and nail them in then put your drywall on top.
My only complaint is that neither HomeDepot or Lowes sell this product in stores so I had to order it online.
This is a must for anyone with an old home who is putting up drywall.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Matt Quick Shipping, Product Worked Well
I needed to level some rafter ties in the attic and bought a set of these shims to do so. In some places I had to put as many as 8 shims because that particular tie was 1/2" out of level from others. They are made of dense incompressible cardboard and serve well to level or plumb studs/rafters etc. Just don't forget to buy longer drywall screws as needed if several shims are used.
