Hi I'm Bob Schmidt with Home Remodel Workshop. There are few things you need to know about anchoring drywall to wall stands. Your ceiling rafters, I’ll let you know what you need to know. Let’s get to work.
The drywall nails and screws that you’re going too used for your project; this is a typical drywall nail, its design specifically for dry wall. It’s about an inch and a quarter long and it has a rib surface on the shank, which grips into the wood. A typical lank drywall screw is an inch and a quarter. This is a coarse thread they do make this and fine thread as far as I'm concern I’ve seen no differences to how they hold which one is better than the other. So, I would go with the inch and a quarter drywall screws and the drywall nail that’s specifically made for your project.
Now, when hanging drywall, first you take your drywall nails and you’ll nail the perimeter at every stud space, on the ends around the whole perimeter, so everything will get a nail that’s on the perimeter.
Now, once you get your perimeter nail, so we have nailed it at your stud here. We have to nail your stud up here. I drew a little pencil line on here so we can see where the wall stud is. A typical layout for a wall would be two screws. You put one about there, you put one about there, technically speaking there are about 16inches on center, and that would be a typical layout for screws in a wall. Though I’m not going to hold this up on the ceiling to show you a typical screw patter for ceiling that will be a little difficult, but once you’ll get your nails in your ceiling rafters assuming that this was flat up. The typical screwing pattern for a ceiling board would be three screws, would be one there, one about center and one about there.
When putting in a drywall’s screw, I know that they make drywall screw guns with clutch tips in everything, so that you don’t set the screw too deep. Most people don’t have those and I’m not going to go out and buy one even if I’m just hanging a single room because I don’t do enough to justify it. But if I used my screw gun with my screw tip, and I run this through in to the drywall stud, what I want to do I want to run that drywall screw into it just below the surface. It will pack all the paper end just a little bit. You don’t want to go any further than that because if you do this paper is what has 90% of the holding strength. If I continue to screw this, and it blow to the drywall like that It’s barely holding anything, so you really have to clutch it down, and really take a look at it why you’re doing it.
Here, I’ll put another in that’s good because if you do blow onto like that, you’ll have to put second one in, again check it down tore the end till it just suck below the surface just right the way you want it. A good check for that is to slide a hammer over it. If it’s nice and quite that means the drywall mob will go right over that, and will cover that, that screw up that fine. Now, even on the perimeters of the board where you put the drywall nail, the same thing is going to hold true when you put the nail end you want to take the nail drive it down until it just dimples the surface just a little bit. You really want to use a hammer that has smooth head on it again they make drywall hammers and they’re specifically design for this, but for just a small amount of drywalls say one room or something I’m not going to go out and buy a hammer that I’ll only used very frequently. Again, if you slide your hammer over on top of it and there’s no tick you know you got to stand for enough, but let’s say again if you do drive it in, you don’t want to break the paper with your hammer you don’t want to drive it in too deep, so be real cautious when you’re doing that, and you’ll help eliminate the finishing you have to do, and all the re nailing because any nail or screw that goes to that surface you have to replaced with the good one.
So there you go, the main goal is to keep the drywall where you want it. Follow these simple tips and advice, and you should have any problems, thanks.
