Re: Garage addition

said by cableties:

Don't forget to put beads on Drywall adhesive on the joists/studs that meet the sheetrock. Around here, it is code to use adhesive for ceilings along with screws. I also put on walls to cut down vibrations (media room). (PS. don't ask me how I feel about screws vs nails)

(subwoofer makes the closet doors rattle...)

I would put on some adhesive if I did the job myself but it's not code so the pros won't do that. They just toss up screws ever 12 inches on walls and every 9 inches on ceilings.

They'll gladly do overkill if your willing to pay. Who wouldn't do more if it made them more money? Even McD's is pushing to get you to upgrade from a Medium to a Large. Anything that empties your pocket into theirs!

Here, they have to put adhesive up as there was a lawsuit against several townhome builders where the ceiling sheetrock collapsed on owners. 'rockers used nails only-no screws.

I've had several nails get popped because of the "truss" floor flex. I got mad a the crappy Sears Shop vac, kicked it and threw it down (anger issue with the *%^^! wheels that won't roll) on bedroom subfloor (before new carpet...pulled out all nails and replaced with deck screws).

Next day, I am looking at living room ceiling and HOLY !!!!
(they only used nails...I went back and put fields of screws 1" off the nail heads, pulled nails out and filled).

When I remodeled the basement, the association contact told me to use adhesive and screws for ceilings. Stuff was cheap (case of liquid nails drywall adhesive big tubes). Since I was below grade, I did green sheets and screws.

Do it right the first time.

That's the condo association not code. I used adhesive when I put up some drywall ceilings but I did it for sound proofing. You use this green sound proofing adhesive then put it all over the drywall and attach a second piece of drywall.

Not to the wife or to resale value though.
