replace a wall
Jul 30th, 2013 at 8:00pm
 
i am redoing a wall in my shop.  it had sheetrock.  anytime i wanted to hang something, i had to aim for studs.  which should i replace it with: " OSB or plywood?  OSB is cheaper, but, would screws pull out of it easy under some weight?  i am leaning toward plywood.

thanks

I would probably go for the OSB, but use 3/4".  If you are hanging anything heavy on it, go for the studs or use hollow anchors.

If you want to stay with 1/2' I'ld go with plywood.  When I bought my house there was OSB in the garageon one wall.  Around the dryer exhaust it had swelled up from soaking up the moisture from it and was very soft.  It was not painted and that would have made a difference I think.

I just like the performance and strength of plywood over USB.

If you're hanging things from it, I suggest using cabinet grade (More layers). And yes more expensive. Glenn J.

If you haven't pulled the sheetrock yet then don't. It will be cheaper in the long run to purchase 1 x 4 or 1 x 6 pine and screw into the studs at a height you want. You can then set hangers wherever you want along the length of that board. I have used many 1 x 6 in my shop and it works fine.

I was talking to a local remodeler, and he said that he would use either 3/4" OSB or 1/2" ply.  He also stressed that in most areas, the sheet rock is still required by fire code if it is in a residence.

the garage/shop is attached to the house, but the wall that i am doing is not.  fire code here says 5/8" sheetrock with all joints taped only on walls that share the house.  that included our ceiling, since there is a room above the garage/shop.  i decided to go with the " plywood and picked out 5 good sheets of CDX.  will post a picture when i am done.

thanks for your help. Thumbs Up

As cheap as insulation is you may want to do this while you have the chance. It may already be done though.

that was the first thing i did before the sheetrock.  since the water heater and furnace are in the garage/shop, i wanted it to be as warm as possible in the winter and as cool in the summer.  the coldest it got was 43F (outside was 5).  the neighbor across the street did not insulate and his pipes froze that winter.
