Unless the adhesive specifies less screws, you should at least meet minimum code, bottom chart, 16" or 24" o.c.; http://publicecodes.cyberregs.com/ic...002_par010.htm

Not trying to start a debate.
But, what is it that makes you so set on going vertical?

I'm guessing no butt seems. Even though it makes more total taping.

I said I didn't want to start an argument about vert vs horizontal :-) drywall going in basement, ceiling is about 7'9 so instead of making 2 cuts on some boards and having to cut many boards long wise, chose to go vertical and just trim to fit. Not saying it's best, just what made sense for us :-)

drywall hanging questions


Started the project. Have a question. I had to shorten the width of a board so I have a cut end. I put an uncut end next to it. I see now this is a no no. Is this fixable in finishing or do I need to pull down one of the boards to have a cut end meet a cut end or a finished end meet a finished end?

If you're good at mudding you can hide almost anything. You just need to feather it out wide.

Also, is this a tapered edge or the other end? Can you flip the piece?

Tapered edge is the long side right? Wouldn't matter for that. Had a really.warped board in the frame so I had to trim down the drywall to hit the stud and have room for the next piece to hit the stud. So hanging vertically, one side is still tapered, the other long side is cut. So either way I will have a taper to a cut side.

I'll have to make sure to really feather it out. As long as it's doable!

Thanks.

Totally forgot you're hanging vertical. So just make sure you fill in the taper and then tape it.

Another question for preparing for finishing. Hanging vertical, have a board that i had to cut up against an uncut board so one side is higher than the other. Should I run joint compound at an angle to level out the space between the 2, let it dry, then put another layer on to tape, or should I just mud and tape over the unevenness and feather it out further. Hope that makes sense. Thanks!
