Multi layered drywall

by Jim
(Pittsburgh, Pa.)

I have removed the plaster walls from my kitchen and will replace with drywall. I will need to layer 2 sheets to achieve the 7/8" thickness as measured when my cabinets were ordered. I will use 3/8" and 1/2" drywall. My question is, should one layer be placed horizontal and one vertical, or both the same direction? How can I minimize the chance of screwing into an underlying screw?

two layers NEW
by: Smith

If you do use the two layers you can run both set horizontally just make sure the seams fall on different areas. We have done a double layer of drywall to slow the spread of fire in multi unit developments specifically between the ceiling and attic space.

Multi layered Drywall
by: DrywallTeam

There are a few options that exist. The first being you do not have to use two layers of drywall. You can simply cut furring strips the length of your studs to give you your distance. Tack them through with some nails. Once you put your drywall screws in it will further secure and fasten the strips in place.
If you do use the two layers you can run both set horizontally just make sure the seams fall on different areas. The easiest way though it takes a little more time is to measure where your screws fall. For instance if you on your first sheet make pencil marks with your square at say three inches up 14, 26, 32, and 46 these are just random numbers. Stagger the numbers so that that screws do not land on top of one of another. Also Make sure you use a 2 inch screw.
I hope this helps.
