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.

    The material was flat and made out of cardboard. Really no surprises regarding their performance! Outstanding!

      They do the job quickly, easily and cheaply
      I was building a shower and I needed to shim out the studs to be flush with the edge of the shower pan. Using two to four layers I was able to quickly staple them to the studs to make the walls flat. I used about half of them to do the job. Some people have criticized them for being flimsy and worry that they will fall apart when wet. If your wall leaks water to the studs you have bigger problems: like seepage and mold. They are flimsy, but they do the job for little cost.

        POOR VALUE FOR THE DYI'er
        Poor Value, unless you are a contractor who can use a LARGE quantity of drywall shims. For the DYI'er who only needs a fraction of what comes in this bundle, it's a poor value. Home Depot doesn't sell drywall shims in any other quantity other than the above large bundle.

        Great way to compensate for drunk framers!
        Very useful both as a shim and for other projects. Keeps its shape and shims things at 1/8" per strip.

        We were starting a small renovation that required us to replace a good amount of drywall (now whole panels). Since out house is almost 20years old, we have multiple sizes of drywall that needed to blend seamlessly. These shims made it to easy to get various pieces lined up without issues. Without these, we would have had to use A LOT of drywall compound.

        Good enough shims
        1/16-in shims that do what they're supposed to do. A bit expensive.

        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.
