I have wall with drywall in my basement with a bad job of wallpaper
and panelling. I have removed the wall paper and pannelling only to
find that the surface of the drywall is an eye sore. I would like to
apply another layer of drywall - 1/2 in or 3/8 in . I noticed that
the old drywall was screwed to a mix of 2 x 2 and 2 x 3 without any
specific spacing. Where I cannot find wood to screw the new drywall
to can I use an adhesive ?
Certainly. It is normal practice to glue two layers of rock
together with joint compound. There are special screws called
laminates that are made for screwing 2 layers together. Go to USG
site for more information.
Keep the whole world singing . . . .
