Materials 101: Sheetrock

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

Here’s something you may be interested in knowing:

Sheetrock lined with lead makes an excellent sound barrier.

Most lead lined sheetrock had 1/8 inch of #2 lead on the side that faces in towards your studs. It’s great for reducing noise, but there’s a problem.

It’s crazy expensive.

We’re talking anywhere from $125 to $250 per piece. Compare that to the price of some drywall and some extra Green Glue and you’ll see a huge difference right away. It’s not worth the money!
