Shim walls into alignment

Builder’s Shims

Everybody knows that a quality drywall job depends on studs that are straight, plumb and aligned. But the real world of construction is out of plumb — full of bowed studs, off-vertical walls and more alignment problems than a battered used car. Everybody knows how easy it is to correct the problem – you use a string or straightedge to identify the low areas and then shim them into alignment. But unless the right shim stock is within arm’s reach, most crews don’t bother — leaving behind a wall with enough waves to make you seasick.

Phoenixboard Builders Shim Stock is bundled in easy-handling lengths that install fast with nails, or even faster with a hammer tacker. A utility knife makes short work of cutting the shims to required length. Phoenixboard’s consistent thickness accelerates the speed of application, and won’t compress like corrugated cardboard.
