Re: Removing Screws After Hanging?


Put glue on the studs, and you better plan on retightening them all. Less of a problem with solvent based glues, because they don't shrink as much.

You can do everything right and have pops, especially with lightweight board.

On the other hand....maybe someone would consider it to prevent callbacks for ceiling pops involving truss uplift.

Depends . On where they are and the scope of the job. Ceilings ? Never!

Keep the fasteners away from the wall down hallways helps . A good framer that knows how to brace a truss system helps even more .

Re: Removing Screws After Hanging?


I had a vision of a shop Vacumn hose with a tapered nozzle stuck in a hole(~1')(within an inch of the bottom of the sheet), covered by the mop board centered in in the center stud cavity: the "vacumn" holding the Dry sheet against the glued off studs, (14.5"cavity width of - 1.0 psi x( 92" or 104"stud pocket height) = >1300 lbs of "suction"? while glue takes a quick set + a few screws on the seams?

Version B vacumn nozzle stuck into augured hole in stud with two more in the studs in the field of the sheet to "spread" the vacumn to 2-3 stud cavities. This is more likely to have the sheet tight to all studs.

Wouldn't work so well with steel studs....

Re: Removing Screws After Hanging?


Sometimes we install stone/precast with vacumn "clamps" instead of old school pins and holes.

Rain day here. Bored
