Q:Is this the cardboard shim for the shower?

Answer This Question

A:  Hi Teresa, The Grip-Rite 3.75 Ft. long, 1 1/2 inch wide shim is intended to be used behind drywall, between the drywall and bowed or crooked stud. When I used the shims I used a staple gun with 3/8 inch long staples to hold the shim(s) in place before placing the piece of drywall against the studs for installation. The shims can easily be bent and torn to length by hand. The shims can be used behind water proof drywall against the bowed or crooked stud (see picture below) for a shower wall. Finish the drywall for the shower wall in the normal way and the shim should should never see the moisture. I hope this helps. Chipmaker

Answer This Question

A:  I would be reluctant to use paper shims behind a shower wall. If one used one of the new roll on water proofing materials like Hydroban between the tile and the backer board the shims would probably be ok, but a more moisture and humidity resistant material would be cheap insurance.

by|Nov 25, 2020

    A:  Absolutely! These shims are perfect for that application. I personally use them for a multitude of different tasks, but mostly to align new finishes to match up to existing finishes

      Answer This Question

      A:  No Probably not The shims are about inch wide Kind of difficult to make a template out of them. M ight work for the tiles to figure out angles because you can cut them to any length from 4 ft down.

      A:  They are not very rigid and I would not recommend using them for this application.

        A:  I went to HD to look at these and found out they are too thin and flimsy for templates.

          A:  I would think so. They are a thick and flexible paper product, so you can cut them with scissors and make marks on them.

            These shims worked great. I had a low spot on a piece of drywall and these shims evened everything out. They worked as intended. No idea why they only got 3 stars. Maybe folks don't know how to use them. They go BEHIND the drywall and attach to the stud... just incase anyone was wondering. Just staple them to the stud, bang the staple further with a hammer, fit the drywall and adjust if necessary. So easy.

              We had some wall unevenness at the studs. I purchased these to make up the difference for drywall . Installation and use is super easy. We were able to make the wall perfectly flat. It was very satisfying.
