Putting up 1/2 lite-weight drywall in my finished attic. I use osi f38 drywall adhesive and screws. I do my best to set the screws evenly and just below the surface with a slight dimple. Doing this nights and weekends and I’ve got a lot to do so it’s taking weeks. When I go back to panels I’ve done a while ago, it seems like the screws sit a little higher and I can drive them back in by maybe a quarter turn pretty easily. Can’t tell if the screws backed out on their own or if the adhesive shrunk down and pulled the drywall tighter leaving the screws where they were. Mostly see this on the ceilings but that’s what’s been up longer. Anyone see this before?
