Asked by BARBARA February 24, 2021

I dont think so

Does this come in a bundle of two

Asked by sunshine February 15, 2021

Yes or it can be purchased as one single

Would it be strong enough to support a a 29inch span, for a bulkhead with framing only on the edge ?

Asked by tom February 4, 2021

I would say if it’s only 29” you should have a problem doing that at all. I think it would look just fine.

STOP!!!! Something is off in the Mix?
Not sure where they changed the formula for this dry wall but this product is Now Horrible!  To many of the other reviewers giving 5 stars, you obviously have not worked with drywall over the years! Yes, this is light weight drywall but it's NOT supposed to crack... its NOT supposed to have the paper terror off the back AND why are there so many hollow spaces in each sheet? Is anyone paying attention to quality control? Its way to brittle. Is anyone listening?

Do not buy this Sheet rock
This shestrock is the horrible, horrible most worst sheetrock I've ever seen in my life. I've been she rocking for 30 years. The corners break the edges are broken in the middle of the sheet, there's cracks. I would take the sheet rock back, but I'm doing a job and I do not have the time to bring back 20 sheets. I just cut a piece 14" wide put it over to the side and it broke in half just sitting there. The problem with the sheet rock is there's no compound support and the paper is ultra thin. I will never purchase this product or use again.
