    Ceiling OSB

    I'm getting ready to do the ceiling in the barn. I've decided on OSB, would 1/4" be sufficient, or should I use 7/16"? My joists are on 16" centers.

    i'm open to suggestions.

    I used 7/16" OSB with 16" center joists. 1/4" might sag between the joist over time.

    It's isn't that much cheaper, I was just thinking of the weight putting it up.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    1/4" will sag. I have seen it before, go with the 7/16". It is more difficult to install by yourself, but if there is a will, there is a way. I did a 30'x50' shop ceiling by myself 12yrs ago and worked off of scaffolding and a 2x4 jig I made.

    Good Luck!

    How tall is ceiling?? perhaps use a drywall lift. I used them on three garage ceilings and they work great. With my two sons one on each end of drywall sheet me on ground running the lift worked out great.

    NO question 7/16" is heavier. I used a sheet material jack to put mine up. I wouldn't want to put it up without a jack.

    I'm guessing I need to buy one of these?

    I wanted something for a ceiling in one of my garages,,,
    I used foil faced insulation board.



    You could hold up two sheets with one hand,,, it is light.
    It is heat and light reflective,, so the garage can be heated, and light is not lost in the rafters.

    I have had it up for over 20 years,, no sag.
    I think I put it up with dry wall screws, and an electric drill,,, by myself,,,
    Some of the tractors include JD 4105, JD 855, JD 650,,,, and,,, the IH 584 4WD
    My favorite attachment is the homemade landplane,,, EVERYONE needs one of those!!

    I would use this or , a blue board type insulation, lighter than OSB. gives some insulation .. can get in a lot of different thickness.

    If you still go with the OBS rent a dry wall lift last time I rented one thinking it cost me $50 a day.. I did apx 24' x 32' around kitchen cabinets , dinning room. living room and hall way by myself in two day.
    Lift was well worth the money.
