Drywall adhesive, use or no ?


Is it a good idea to use drywall adhesive on the ceiling drywall ?
On the wall drywall ?

I am trying to decide if I should go to the trouble of using drywall adhesive. It appears not to be used much around this area, if at all (Western Arkansas). The hardware and box stores don't even seem to carry it.

I was thinking about using it on my ceiling and exterior walls because they are constructed from rough cut lumber and the surface, or course, is not going to be nearly as even as if I had used milled lumber.

Someone told me to just use a few extra screws than typical and don't worry about it. But I was wondering if it greatly added to the strength of the attachment.

Under what conditions is it advisable to use drywall adhesive, and when is it pretty much just a waste of time and money ?

Thanks,
Arky

Use it on the walls only. It will be a pain to use on the ceiling and wont really do much.

Using it on the walls will add lateral stability to the structure. It will allow you to use a few less screws. On the ceiling it usually isn't done.

use it anywhere you can. you will have less screw pops later on. i knew one guy that would put drywall on the ceiling with 4 screws and glue it. he was one of the best drywall guys ive seen over 40 years. he even pulled string lines and shaved studs and joists down so the everything was flat.

I have done a lot of drywall, and I have never seen anyone shave studs/joists. We were asked to glue a ceiling one time and it was a pain in the butt, and I don't think it was beneficial. Somebody please explain to me how 4 screws will hold up a 12' ceiling board.
