1/4" Drywall question...

I assume this is the stuff to use for arched entryways? Also, I'm guessing it could be used for a flat basement cieling to conserve headspace?

Forget about using it for a ceiling.

It will sag and you don't save enough headroom to make a difference (only 1/4 to 3/8").

It can also be used to cover damaged plaster/drywall.

It can also be used to cover damaged plaster/drywall. I wouldn't use it alone on a ceiling. It only saves 1/4" height and it will probably sag over time.

Sagging, yeah that makes sense. But is it what is used for making an arched entryway?
Thanks!

Yes you can use it on the arch. 1/4" drywalls 2 main uses are to overlay an existing wall or use on a radius as it bends better than the thicker drywall.
