They are as sure a thing as death and taxes.Whenever I start thinking about laying down beads of glue as an alternative option, I think about what a nightmare it will be for the next person down the line who decides to modify or get back to clean studs. Are screw pops really that common of a problem? I rarely see them except with nails, badly abused walls, poor installations, or moldy and water damaged rock.
Many ways to skin the cat, my father was convinced glue and a couple screws was the ultimate way. I couldn't stand having to pull a sheet back of with glue on it, plus the caulk gun was just another tool to carry around that ya don't need.There are way too many ways to get screw / nail pops. I still use traditional (non-glue) screw patterns most of the time.
