    I also want to add after all the drywall was hung , my buddy relayed to me
    he was a drywall finisher for five years , not really a hanger as I thought

    I framed my basement with a buddy after watching some of your videos , we
    just drywalled it and made a big boo boo . I’ve never hung drywall before ,
    and our drywall did not fall on studs . My buddy said it would be ok he did
    drywall for five years . This is the ceiling I’m talking about by the way ,
    the walls came out perfect . So basically I have 5/8 inch board hanging in
    space on the ends . Joists are 16 inches apart . What kind of mayhem can I
    now look forward to? We paper taped and durabonded the seams

    I bought a used home for the first time a few years ago, and didn’t know
    anything about drywall or ceilings. So, I never knew about the dangers that
    were right above my cars in the garage with a horrible ceiling drywall job
    (the previous owner did?).
    So, last week after a good rain storm a huge section came down, smacked
    into the garage opener track, then snapped the drywall section in half
    hitting my car and scrathing the trunk up. YES, I was/am very mad about it.
    For now as a quick fix I bought deck screws with washers and attacked every
    board to make sure it will not happen again until I get someone that knows
    what they are doing to make this right. As I was screwing the boards up you
    could certainly tell the others were sagging and bound to fall
    Obvious after learning about using glue that wasn’t done or I wouldn’t have
    a section falling so easily
    These videos help novice noobs like me SO THANKS!

    Nails pop because over time the wood dries and tends to twist. It has
    nothing to do with gravity.

    I thought that every time you were hanging a ceiling you were supposed to
    put 5 screws on the field…

    When you hang a board on the ceiling and then bring one up under it at the
    top of the wall is it better to have the tapered edges meet in the corner,
    butt edges, or trim off one or more of the tapered edges. does this really
    even matter? Would really appreciate some insight on this………..have a
    great day, and thanks for the video(s)

    It depends on which version you purchased. The older versions did not come
    with the drywall videos. Send me your email and order number and I will
    send these to you for free.Thanks again for your purchase and good luck
    with your basement project!

    Thanks Henry! We wait to screw the middle of the drywall sheet because the
    light fixtures stick down 1/2″ below the floor joists we are screwing into
    and if we screwed the middle before we cut-out the lights we would
    “blow-out” the drywall around the light fixtures and ruin the drywall
    sheet! Hope that makes sense to you.. Thanks for your positive comment!

    Don’t over complicate the mechanics of drywall. This is not rocket science
    or brain surgery. Anything you “mess-up” can usually be fixed without to
    much trouble. But… just get in there and get your hands dirty and the
    rest will come! Good luck with the trade my man! Eddie

    Ive never used the 2x4s to prop the drywall. Interesting. Does it ever mess
    up the finished face of the drywall and create extra finishing work? Also,
    I have never used any glue. Interesting as well. Will consider. Haven’t had
    problems with nail pops though personally. But, I see how it can help.

    Thanks for liking our drywall training video Rich! I’m always here if you
    have any questions about the drywall project. Eddie

    Get a job as a helper w/ a good general contractor and just keep your ears
    and eyes open! This is how most guys in the business learn the ropes! No
    College is NOT the answer for this line of work. Trade schools are good but
    learning on the job is BEST! Eddie

    Great video man, feel much more confident after viewing this! One question
    – what’s the purpose of waiting to nail the center of the drywall until
    after you rotozip the boxes?
