old house; drywall is inbetween 1/2" and 5/8" thick


My house was built in the 60s and seem to have drywall that is a tad over 1/2" thick. it's close to 5/8" thick but seems to be thinner than that. It seems to be 1/2" + 1/16". Has anyone encountered this problem?

its 1/2" drywall. add 1/16 for mud, primer, paint x10 and you get 9/16". it may vary in areas where it was skim coated.
