I was taught when hanging ceilings to glue and screw the drywall, to me it made since. Is that standard practice or did i just learn from a guy that liked to take a few exstra steps.

If it is a sheet good I pretty much glue and screw it all.

I've never glued a drywall ceiling other than a layover, or for soundproofing. But we strap every ceiling we drywall with 1x4 furring strips. If I were to ever screw directly to joists I would definitely glue it.

Never seen it glued unless overlaying. Must be something done more often up north. I use to be in the drywall business.

Glue and screw no one likes nail pops.

My drywall sub glues his 5/8 drywall on his ceiling . Doesnt use 1/2 anymore. Uses 5/8 on walls too.

for new installs i was taught to just screw it. if we have old walls with wallpaper we would just go over it with a layer of 1/4" glued and screwed

They tack it with drywall nails then on to next board. Another guy comes back and just screws all day long. They bang out houses like no one i ever seen. Last job 3,000 sq ft home done in one day with good crews.

When i first started we did 5/8 glued and screwd on ceiling and 1/2 on walls, I now use 1/2 that stuff meant for ceiling (the name escapes me now) and i still glue.

Does this not create an issue when it comes to finishing and door jamb width?

4.563 is our door jamb width standard here in bc.

The 5/8 drywall goes little better over uneven studs with less bows and sags. Doors are orderd to the width of the correct door jamb as well as window jamb extension.

Most of the time, it would be a custom order. Thanks for the clarification.

Only times I have seen drywall glued & screwed is on 5/8" board over 5/8" plywood, which was also glued & screwed & edge blocked.

Common installation method in high end residential when they want that dam no texture smooth finish...

My drywall finisher moved up from Virginia... He was amazed to see me glue studs and use 5 screws per stud (in 4 ft). He mentioned that other contractors around here are pretty much the same and make the joints nice and tight.
From what he tells me, the Virginia boys are sloppy hangers...

Lazy? Your clueless to say the least! :laughing: Bring yourself down here for a bit and see if you can make a living gluing and screwing. I worked in the drywall business for 7 years and I'm purty darn sure I've seen alot more drywall stuck to the wall than you and it hasnt been glued.

your probably right but, however over 80% of home construction is track housing by huge businesses that dont care anything about quality, all they care about is that the huricane clips are installed so they can pass code and the rest is :censored: Finishes are not inspected so who cares.

I've done it domed ceilings, cathedrals, coffered..etc, etc,... in new 12k sf homes and new 2k sf homes. No glue unless your doing drywall reveals.

To add, when I was in the drywall business, we didn't work for track builders, only custom.
