Drywall Transport

8 posts in this topic

Guys, this weekend, I need to haul 6 sheets of moisture resistant drywall up to the cabin.  The problem is that the tailgate will need to be down to fit the sheets, and other items needed.  Do you think it will be a concern if snow gets on the sheets?  I'm guessing since it's going to be butt asrse cold that the snow will/should stay in a solid state.

Tarps, plastic sheeting etc to cover. They also may hook you up with a damaged sheet of plywood they refer to as a cover sheet that you can lay on top to weigh it down and protect it. Otherwise a few sand bags etc.

Since you're purchasing paper faced moisture resistant  rock you need to protect it regardless of the length of hanging out the back. They do make a couple of different paperless products (lighter than cement board) if your still concerned in the long run.

I would be more worried about road spray than snow.   How about that stretchy plastic that comes on a roll like they strap stuff with?  It sticks to itself and seems like it would be a good choice.   Or..... ta da.  those bags they sell to put mattresses in.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
