Answers

10/30/19 Between $11 - $15 per 4' x 8' sheet, plus some change for Gypsum Board. The price varies based on which specific board you select. This is the current price; prices may be subject to change. Recommended is that you go on line or simply visit a local Home Depot to determine exactly which you want, learn the exact price. Some construction items also come with a volume discount, so if you were going to buy a LOT, you might want to ask about that, see if it applies.

No, never! You don’t want anything heavy above you. Suspended ceilings are not made for that kind of weight. Imagine an earthquake with that falling down on you. Acoustical tile would be the best option.

Drywall should be attached with screws that go at least 5/8" into the wood, so for 1/2" drywall use 1 1/4" screws or longer.

No straight edges
I hauled around 30 sheets up my stairs to the second floor just to find out the edges were over a 1/4” out of square from top to bottom. See pic.

Bought this for an attic I was finishing. I used it on the walls, sloped ceiling, and flat ceiling. It's lighter than some but supposedly still good to be used in ceilings. It seemed to go up ok, and I'm not immediately worried about the ceilings sagging - everything seems pretty secure, but we'll see what time brings.
