warped drywall can i use it


Hello all, today I had the lumber co. deliver some 4x8x1/2 drywall to my house while I was at work.When I got home I noticed that they must have given me all their warped sheets lying around. So my question is, will the warped drywall return to normal once I screw it to the walls or will it be noticeable? FYI my studs are 2x4 and are spaced on 16" centers. Thx

how warped? if it's wavy it will never be the same. if it's just bowed but otherwise flat you'll be fine.

If it's not all warped, lay the warped pieces flat on the floor and put the good pieces on top. The weight should flatten out the warped sheets in a day or two...
