          Water damaged?
          Bought several sheets. While using them, noticed the corners easily crumbled into dust, many edges similar, and there were many areas where paper was delaminating from the gypsum. If I had to guess, I would say the whole pallet must have been exposed to rain but was put out for sale anyway. I've bought drywall from HD before and never had problems so this was unexpected.

            This material is not what I expected. Its drywall and I thought it would be more water resistant.

            Works great for kitchen and fireplace areas. It’s a little heavy in weight so you will need help moving it around.
