An old finisher once told me "You can't make chicken soup out of chicken sh*t" I do my absolute best to do an above average job but drywall can only cover so much garbage. Good framing is a different story,there we CAN get away with skipping field screws because the glue actually catches the rock. But very few builders/framers in this area give a crap about Plumb/True/Level/Flush anymore. Gnarled studs used on plates and openings,crowns down...and up....and down....headers half an inch thicker than jackstuds.....makes a good hanging crew FEEL like butchers. Glue is not overkill when most houses are sheathed with plywood corners and foam everywhere else....what the h*ll else will hold them together? The jokes called Hurricane Straps? Not hardly

Yes glue is the best way to go, we glue every stud on wall, and screw every other stud on wall, and we glue ceilings also, but we screw every stud on ceiling.

Re: glueing drywall


iv used glue in Canada and it's a lot differnt than Australia, Glue in canada comes in a calking tube, glue in australia comes in a tub that you put on with a stick that looks kinda like a large butter knife with a wooden handle. now the differnce with glue in canada and here is that you can never put glue where a screw goes. Big fine line that iv made mistakes here on... all the ceilings and walls are glued in australia weather steel or wood. and there is certain glue formats that must be followed correctly. never put glue where a screw goes cause that glue will shrink and pull up where your screw is and cause that screw to pop.. after you coat that screw the second time it shows a ring that you might think is under filled, but dont be fooled the screw has popped cause you have glue underneath it.. after that you need to push up on the ceiling and rescrew wich causes the area next to the glue to completly blow out causeing major repairs in that area.. glue in australia is also not waterproof, I do 2 cieling repairs a day rather than running my ass doing new homes here that pays more than sq foot prices and i dont work hard... Houses in aussie arnt anything like back home thats for sure cracks and waterdamage cause of there ways... Cheers

Fair go I am sure there is shody work in both countries. Just as I am sure there is good work in both countries. If standards are adhered to no problems.

Re: glueing drywall


You right houses arnt like back home, but the lack of poly an the ceilings like in canada causes a lot of water damage here in auusie land and using 10 mm board 3/8 sheeting and other reasons sure cause more cracksand sagging ceilings than normal. (I never seen a sagging ceiling till i came to oz) all good though cause the right person with the right reputation and know how can fix all thoses sagging ceilings, cracks, water damage and make a very good living...
