Re: glueing drywall


Any commerical job you walk on and you don't screw the drywall off, consider it failed! In my region, glue is never used. Screws only!

Re: glueing drywall


BTW,

I love spotting screws, thats like by breather. I spot screws when I'm trying to rest from boxing and bazooka-ing.

Re: glueing drywall


We were rocking some high end units a few years ago, and last srping I had the opportunity to stay in them. Seemed like every screw in the stairways popped. We just finished rocking an other one of them types of units and on the first one we glued the rock on the stairway. But by the time we got to the second one we were like screw it, we never get recognition for going above and beyond, we just get bitched at when we forget something. They want standard, they'll get standard. They can take all the green glue and aqua rock and shove it strait up there candy ass.

Re: glueing drywall


i live in a 27 year old building. they were nailing the edges and gluing the field. in a lot of places the glue has let go of the drywall so if you bang on the wall you can hear the loose field smacking against the stud. also the sheet does not get sucked up tight against the stud so your glue is doing f**k all. if i try to screw the sheets tight now the board just pops back out leaving the paper torn and core crushed due to the uneven surface of glue on stud. its the worst in the bathrooms. my preference is to set the board in place with a couple of nails in the edge and then screw everything. if you want to add glue on top of that, awesome, but personally i don't care and i think its overkill. i think you can figure out my opinion on glueing and not screwing the field. its poopoo

Re: glueing drywall


if you dont screw the field the rock does not always touch the glue. i would not hang drywall without gluing it- period. i will also refuse to let entire fields go unscrewed. i MAY skip every other stud if the builder wants that AND has built something more structurally sound than the usual clap trap houses framed these days.

yea, exactly i agree.

no offense to anyone, but gluing doesnt make any sense to me, especially when my company has RARELY had problems with things such as nail pops in the first place. gluing is definitely overkill in my opinion.

again, ive said this before i think on this very forum, but i would NOT feel comfortable for my sheetrock to be glued DIRECTLY to (most likely future settling) lumber. again, no offense but there is no logic in this.

my own experiences, wallboard attached THAT securely to lumber via glue, is NEVER something to brag about.

one of the reasons why i am a strong proponent of using r.c. channels on ceilings due to poor framing / bad lumber. in the best case scenario, i can guarantee my work all day if builders would use this on all their ceilings.

im a strong believer that the best scenario for drywall is to have 'breathing room' and flex room btwn the wallboard and lumber, hence r.c. channel (resilient channel).

the worst thing for a drywall contractor is bad lumber and moving (settling) studs.......

and you want to GLUE directly to this material?

hah, no way.

Re: glueing drywall


I once followed a hanger who glued ,then put one screw in the field and one on the perimiter of each stud . he was the best hanger you ever saw and ther we never any problems.I give glue a thumbs up.

Re: glueing drywall


Screw the parimiter and one in the center every 4'or 6', to bring the board to the glue.Misconception.. If you hit the board you can hear the loose board. Not true. When the glue dries it will have a small gap between the stud and the wall, so if you smack it that will be what you hear. Now this is a good thing because glue works like a shim if the stud is out and you glue it wall stay flat and glue dries at the thickness of how far the stud is crowned. If you screw that same piece then the drywall follows the wall, putting pressure on the screws and eventually popping. So more glue less screw pops and flatter walls. Furthermore if you think that board isn't stuck to the studs, You just try to pull that sucker off. And if it does come off your using crappy or the wrong glue
