Finding the Right Drywall Screw for Your Installation
Unfortunately, there isn't a one-size-fits-all drywall screw to easily install any drywall material, and not every home or building features the same products. Many older buildings will have layers of plaster over wood frames. When penetrated, the materials will often crack and become damaged — the best type of fastener for this type of drywall is a self-drilling drywall screw or a screw with coarse threads.
In newer homes with updated drywall — plaster sheets that are wrapped in paper layers — and in ceiling drywall, use a small drywall screw in a size designed to support the weight of the materials.
When finding the right type of drywall screw for your installation job, always match the screw size and length to the size of the wall in addition to the weight of the drywall to ensure the screw can manage and support the load properly.
