Asked by Johnnyd August 17, 2019

Answer

Thank you for your inquiry. Our Sheetrock wallboard is manufactured at various plants throughout the US. The gypsum content of the board depends on the plant at which it was manufactured. Most plants supplying board to the east, including GA, use recycled (FGD) gypsum. Both synthetic gypsum and mined gypsum have the chemical composition of calcium sulfate dihydrate, CaSO4 · 2H 2O. Synthetic gypsum (also called “FGD gypsum”) is an environmentally - friendly product made to our specifications through a controlled process in which the emissions from coal‐fired power plants are “scrubbed” to remove the sulfur dioxide by use of wet or dry scrubbers also called “flue gas desulfurization” (FGD).

Yes, if you stop by the Pro Desk at your Home Depot Store, they should be able to special order these through the Quote Center. These are available in Ultralight or Firecode but do not appear to be available in mould tough through the Quote center.

Product itself is great as you minimize number of seams in your final installation. Note that I had a horrible experience picking them up at Home Depot though - despite getting a message saying they were ready to pickup, it took HD an hour to clear other inventory off the pile of drywall to get them ready to load.

I wish we could buy this product in Houston. A lot of houses in Houston are 9' walls and using two of these sheekrocks will cover the whole wall. For some reasons 1/2" x 4.5' x 8, 12 feet sheekrocks are not available in this area. Those are charge at Home Depot, should facilitate and distribute this product to us.

Had the sheetrock delivered and apparently they sent me all the beat up, dented, chipped and gouged pieces that no one else would take when picking up in person. Every sheet had at least 4 spots (3-6 inches each) along the edges that had to be cut out and patched with joint compound. Lesson learned......IF YOU HAVE DRYWALL DELIVERED, YOU'LL GET THE GARBAGE THAT EVERYONE ELSE LEAVES BEHIND.
