mind, I'd really appreciate some guidance with this ceiling issue that I'm trying to resolve. The ceiling has been textured with joint compound and I want it drywalled over...the drywall guy today said that he would locate the studs, use extra long ringnails, no glue, and put the new drywall up over the old. The 2nd person said that he would first use fir strips? don't know if I'm spelling that correctly, glue and nail the fir strips into the studs...and then nail/glue the new drywall into the fir strips. The 2nd guy said that this is a more stable way to put up the ceiling, and it is also more costly. I want the ceiling put up in the best possible way, and don't mind paying the extra $$ to get it done right the first time. I don't want to look up at the ceiling in a year and see it drooping!!
Any opinions on which way to go with this? The 1st guy only does drywall for a living...the 2nd guy does all types of home construction.
