Customer reviews for LightRoc 1/2 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. Gypsum Board

LightRoc 1/2 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. Gypsum Board

The LightRoc 1/2 in. x 4 ft. x 8 ft. Gypsum Board weighs less than traditional drywall for ease of handling. It contains no asbestos and has tapered edges for easily concealed seams.

No, I do not recommend this product.
I have used this product on two jobs, and did not care for product. It is not as robust as regular rock. it breaks easily, and does not trim without crumbling. When scoring product with knife it seems to have voids (you can feel them when cutting). Will go back to regular drywall.

No, I do not recommend this product.
Inferior product. Outer paper, especially the finish face, is not durable and scapes off and is easily damaged when handling and setting tape and trims. Cheap junk that makes doing a good job difficult.

No, I do not recommend this product.
I'm a pro, after doing one room I decided to rip it off the wall and start over with another product. Just to much waste in taping and it still looked bad. I would give this negative stars if I could. Spend a dollar more and get a the better products. this stuff crumbles when cutting, not mention a host of other draw backs, to many to mention. just stay away form this product.

For sheetrock it was on the heavy side but still light enough for me as a woman to work with.
Pros: Easy to Work With, Economical

"Feels" different when cutting and shaving yes, but not significantly different so how could you not love this stuff? It's lighter and easier to install. The same goes for the new and lighter Durock.
My question is where has this stuff been for the last thirty years? !!
