1. On 24" center trusses the Drywall has to be 5/8".You can place the strapping at 16OC and use 1/2" drywall.
2. Strapping can even out older houses with crooked, twisted and uneven joists. You must ship the places where the strapping doesn't meet the joist.
3. Strapping provides a wider nailing, screwing location for sheet goods. Trying to join and nail two pieces of drywall on
a 1 1/2" wide stud is not as easy as a 2 1/2" wide strapping.
All good answers but it also keeps the joists from moving causing cracks in the drywall material. The drywall should run like plys in a piece of plywood, at right angles to the furring strips which are 16" oc.....Mark Hammond
