Find the Drywall Screws You Need

We’ve Got the Drywall Screw Sizes for Your Next Job

Drywall can create a pleasing look in any home and allow for quick repairs and maintenance that doesn’t need extensive renovations, but drywall can be damaged if the wrong-sized drywall anchor screw is used. All Points Fasteners provides you with a complete lineup of drywall TEK screws to get your job done right.
We often hear a lot of misinformation about how to use drywall screws and drywall anchor screws, so we thought we’d provide a guide to selecting the right anchor, ceiling, installation and TEK screws, plus how to properly use them.

How to Use Drywall Screws

Match Your Material

Drywall isn’t the same in every building or home.
Older buildings will often use purer plaster walls over wooden frames where layer after layer of plaster was added. Plaster likes to fight back against penetration so it can crack and fall off when using any drywall screw of relative thickness. Toggle bolts tend to be the way to go, though some drywall TEK screws can also get the job done.

Newer homes will use drywall — plaster sheets wrapped in paper layers — for most of their walls, though sometimes you’ll also run into brick indoors. For these walls, your best bet is to use a drywall anchor screw of the smallest size designed to hold your desired weight.
The same goes for your drywall ceiling screws. Always match your screw size and length to your wall, plus weight to what your wall or ceiling can bear and what your job requires.

A screwdriver and a bit of pressure are all you’ll usually need when hanging something on drywall, but what if you’re installing the drywall itself?

Drywall Installation Screws

A screw gun is your best friend when using drywall installation screws. Match the right drywall screw size to your panel size and also set your gun to the proper depth. Give your drywall a decent push against your studs and drive in the screws. Don’t let up the pressure until you’ve got enough screws in to properly frame and distribute the panel load.

Don’t Be Tacky

You’ve probably been on countless repair jobs where you end up finding tacks left in drywall, circled by just a few nails. That’s not up to snuff and can give your customers a bad experience.

We suggest you tack the perimeter of your sheet with nails and then put proper drywall screws around it to properly bear the load. Finally, go back and remove the nails, replacing each with drywall installation screws. We prefer drywall TEK screws, but the final choice is up to you.
