Customer Questions & Answers

how large of a gap can you span with this?

Asked by: Buck
1/2" thick drywall is suitable to be hung on a wall with studs no more than 24" oc. For a ceiling, do not exceed 16" oc for stud/joist spacing. If you do need to exceed 16" oc spacing on a ceiling, use 5/8" thick drywall.

Can you paint this and it doesn't soak it all up

Asked by: Sandy
Yes you can. After properly preparing the gypsum board, apply a good quality, full bodied drywall primer as recommended by the paint manufacturer to equalize the surface absorption between the joint compound and gypsum board facers and allow it to dry. Then apply your finish coats, once again following the manufacturers recommended number of coats and dry film thickness.

is this good for ceilings?

Asked by: charlie
Yes, ToughRock Lite-Weight Gypsum Board can be used on ceilings with a maximum 24" o.c. framing spacing when a water based texture is applied. Always seal the boards with a high-quality latex primer before applying texture. Insulation applied on top of the Toughrock Lite-Weight Gypsum Board should not exceed 2.2 lbs/sf.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Kid is not qualified to rate this product. Product is just a dense core sheet with thicker paper face. Not really worth the effort or cost unless you are going to cover with commercial style vinyl wallpaper. Or to quote the uber articulate reviewer, UH rock hard to use with primitive caveman mind ugh fire bad!.
