I will spare the details of why I am buying this much QuietRock. For now, let's just assume it makes sense and move on to my question.
As I said, I am buying a large quantity of QuietRock ES to soundproof several rooms and ceilings of my condo (trust me, I found it for a very good price). I am going to need 30 for my initial job, but will be doing several walls downstairs a few months from now. QuietRock ES weighs in at 2.6 lbs per sq ft, so that's a hair over 83 lbs per 4x8 sheet. This maths out to 2,500 lbs for 30 sheets and 4,160 lbs for 50 sheets. I need to find a way to store this!
I could use my garage, but drywall needs to be stored flat in a dry place. I could use my upstairs guest room, but I am questioning the floor's weight capacity. Assuming I get 50 sheets and use half, that's still 2000+ lbs that I will need to store. That's a ton of weight. (See what I did there?)
So what are my options are far as storing this heavy QuietRock? If I can't, I guess I will just have the dealer ship it to me in smaller quantities as I consume it and just lose out on the bulk rate and pay even more in freight costs =.
