Screws Are Best, But.....

In reply to When putting up drywall...nails? liquid nails? screws? by Maryam on July 11th, 2002 10:14 AM [Go to top of thread]

Many installers will use a few nails when first hanging the sheets, then follow up with screws to securely hold the sheets in place.
On walls, "liquid nails" (a heavy glue in a calking tube) is used to minimize the number of screws used. This is ok. However, for the ceilings, enough screws need to be used to hold the sheets firmly in place even if the glue would fail, Therefore, glue is not usually used on the ceilings. I'm sure others will post too.
Good Luck!
