Gluing Drywall


The cause is generally lumber "shrinkage" or seasonal movement in the lumber in transition periods between heating and cooling reasons, to make it simple, not "loose nails". I'm sure that is what Gary's link is leading to. It occurs with nails and screws and adhesive DOES minimize pops. Money-wise, you're talking maybe $120.00 for an average house in material, and while one guy is cutting a sheet, the other one is gluing, so no time is wasted.....

Gluing Drywall


Glue is cool on many things. I try to always do floor sheathing with glue on the joists. And stairs always get glue... everywhere.

The extra strength for d/w doesn't sell it for me, but the lack of movement sure does.

Gluing Drywall


By screwing the drywall the risk of pops is decreased but not eliminated. So if I use glue is the pop eliminated or decreased? My thought on the time would be that when hanging we use nails to hold the board and come back later and screw it off 1 measures 1 cuts we both hang the sheet on the second day we have a 3rd person to start clean up. 1800 sq' house 2 car garage hung, screwed off, metal installed, scrapped out and ready for inspection after 2 days. So if we glued 1 person would measure then glue, 2 would hang then they would need to screw of or nail off the whole sheet before hanging the next one. Time would be lost along with the added material cost, that would drive the price of the bid up.

I agree with Willie T all the floors and stairs have to be glued and screwed.

Gluing Drywall


Again, it's a matter of opinion. It's not any slower as I see it. I'd agree a 2 good hangers (younger than myself) should be able to hang an 1800 sq. ft. house in 2 days (8' ceilings, no scaffold work). You're looking at the equivalent of just over 200 8' sheets. Used to do it all the time. Around here, the hangers don't do the scrap out or install the bead (and as a finisher I'd rather install my own anyway). And no, glue won't ELIMINATE nail pops. It's the standard in this area, so the slight additional cost isn't a deal breaker. And in my opinion it does make for a better job.
I totally agree with all that sub-flooring and steps should be glued always....

Gluing Drywall


I've never even heard of using adhesive on drywall. Maybe the pros do use it and I'm just not aware but I really doubt it. As an electrician, I'm rarely on site during sheetrock. Also, we don't have sheetrock inspections around here. Once you get your cover inspection, there are no more inspections until final.

Gluing Drywall


Speaking as a pro, adhesive is used on all new construction (wood framing) I've seen in this area. It's not code or anything, just makes for a better job and is the standard. And we don't have drywall inspections either.....

Gluing Drywall


Speaking as a pro I have never heard of "No drywall nail inspection" In my area no nail inpection will give you no final.
Glue sounds like a nice extra to do I think I will put that into my bids as an extra
