I did not know that there was 10 foot lengths until I went to your store for the sheet rock my ceiling is 9 feet so it save me time even tho I lost a foot on each sheet. If I had use the 8 foot like I did in the past I would have to use 5 sheet in stead of 4 ten footers and have an additional seam to cover up

I’ve never had so much trouble with blow out on ends when putting screws in on tapered ends! Also paper backing coming off, In fact I was going to ask for some sort of discount because this was a major set back and disappointment also many sheets were damaged and I only received a discount on 2.
