Answer This Question

A:  One size, one thickness. Easily cut with a scissor or knife. Use as many as necessary to butt up drywall sheets-better than cutting cardboard on site.

A:  The box contains 100 shims.

A:  There are 100 pieces of shim in a box. Stapling them onto studs is the fastest method. Use a hammer to nail the staples flat. Get a 8 foot long level/straight edge to try and gauge how far off the studs are. This is important when your builders your contractor is really bad (like mine was - OMG).

    Very handy material..I used it to even up door frames, used between drywall/concrete board to wall studs, etc. Too bad it isn't sold in the stores and has to be ordered. I also used them to establish a temporary consistent "stop" for my tilework around the bathtub (see attached photo)

    These were used on a 1/12 scale dollhouse as siding, made it so much easier and looks fantastic

    A contractor told me about this product. We used it when installing a tongue and groove ceiling. Works nice.

    Great for flattening framing before drywall on a remodel project, where the old walls are not close to flat. Goes on easily with staples and can be stacked if one is not enough.

    Pricing Error $$$$
    I purchased a couple boxes in 2021 thinking they would come in handy for remodeling project. Lifesavers!!!! They made the always frustrating job of "straightening" or where required, plumbing old studs much easier than other methods.I was going to purchase more when I choked on the price -- as of July 8, 2020 almost $80 for 100 strips of pressed paper. Checking other vendors, I see them available for less than $40. I contacted HD customer service through chat and they verified my findings but could not match the price. They said they would put a ticket in to the pricing team to audit and make changes if needed.I am frustrated but will check availability at our local drywall wholesaler or order online from somewhere else . . . Grumble!I concur with a previous reviewer. These should be priced competitively and sold in the store.
