Wood Screws

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
A while back someone posted that #8 sheetrock screws were *NOT* acceptable
as structural screws.  The reasons given made sense.

Would this apply to gypsum shear walls?

Does anyone know of a reference for using screws in sheathing applications?
