I recently sheetrocked my garage w/ 1/2" sheetrocks. Are they gonna be fine or should I have used 5/8" instead??
Also, I used a minumum number of sheetrock screws to bolt them down(about 16 inches apart) for a cosmetic reasons. Is this wrong?? Should I fasten more screws??
Thanks a bunch in advance!!

You should use drywall screws about every 8", especially along edges and in the ceiling, if along studs. Otherwise the studs are on 16" centers and o.k. I would add them to prevent future sagging.
1/2" drywall should be fine.
Good Luck!
