I think the 5/8" sheet would be MORE than 1.25 the weight of 1/2", because Sheetrock is layered, the outer layers (maybe 1/8" total?) being less dense stuff. With 5/8" Sheetrock you are adding ALL of the additional 1/8" to the dense core, outer less dense layers remain the same, not increasing by 1.25.

Doing a Google search I found that a 4X8X1/2 calculates to 51.2 lbs/sheet. The 5/8 calculates to 70.4. 1.25 X 51.2 = 64 so, 5/8 is much heaver than 25% more. Looking at a 12 ft sheet of 1/2 the weight would be 50% greater or 51.2 + [.50(51.2)] = 76.8lbs. For a 5/8 that comes to 105.6lbs or a net weight increase of 28.8 lbs. He would be charging $5.00 extra to move and install an additional 30 lbs or so to the 75 lbs he has to pick up now. Pay the man, he will earn it.

he has the supporting tools, he is worth is salt.

We all make rookie mistakes.
Here's mine. I'm going to put 4 LED lights over the sofit so I asked the sheerocker to put in that piece early so I can cut the holes. ( no housing needed for the light). I measured from an end and computed so the lights will be equidistant.
They are not.
The mistake was that I measured on the edge close to me not on center line.
I had to remove the piece and put another one in its place. Looking much better

True, I had forgotten over the last 44 years. 5/8 is fireguard and is denser than regular 1/2" SHEETROCK.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

They built 23 wood framed 3 story condos behind us on 2 acres of land and fireguard is all they used between the units for the firewalls.

No escape from the rooftop decks unless you repel down.

Fricking places are built like burning man. They are wood and sheetrock chimneys. But what do you expect for $500k and up?

.... And floor joists that used to be a 2x8 solid piece of wood are now a long narrow strip of OSB with 2x2 edges! Cheap! And they want $500k for these things?

Exactly about the floor joists.
$500k and up. The ones with the rooftop decks are like $650-700k
Particleboard palaces. Then the suckers who bought them are the Condo Queens of the neighborhood, don't bother to mingle or even acknowledge the natives.

Works for me as long as they stay the 12 ft excepted easement from the edge of my place.
A 3 story fire can't jump 12 ft...right?

The lot is so tight that for the 23 condos, there is a total of ONE guest parking spot and resident's usually snatch that and ONE 30 x 50 green space for all the resident dogs to use.

Of course the Queens think our streets and yards are for their convenience too.

Can't wait for the breakdown of society.

If they can find people to pay that more power to them. It's like almost anything, price has nothing to do with cost.

I worked on installing sprinklers for the new house. 6 zones about 40 sprinkler heads.
Even thou I rented a trencher it was very hard work.
Here is a few questions that I have in mind.

Suppose you have a pipe full of water going around the world, over mountains and valleys.. It ends where it starts and you keep both ends at the same elevation. will the pipe leak water out?
Second question :
The pipe is enclosed at both ends and you apply pressure at one end, how long will it take for the pressure to reach the other end?
Third question:
If you apply a steady pressure at one end, lets say 100Lb/ square inch and the pipe has a leak midway, is the pressure at the end the same or smaller than 100lb?

I make sense all the time. The problem is you only listen intermittently
