You could be wondering “Why do I use drywall screws?”

Screws or nails popping out of the wall indicate that the drywall is not properly secured to the frame in that area. Simply screwing or nailing the fasteners back into the wall won’t fix the problem.

I found the answer was the recommended length of screw for working with standard drywall is 1 ¼ inches. This is the most common length of screw people use for drywall projects to attach the drywall sheeting to wooden wall studs. For thicker drywall measuring ⅝ inches, you should use screws that fall into the range of 1 ⅝ and 2 inches in length.

Drywall: use a threaded anchor screw for anything weighing less than 20-pounds. Anything weighing more should be anchored with a molly bolt. Concrete or brick and mortar walls require expansion anchors.

This means that in a standard home construction, you would need about 28 screws to attach said 4×8 foot piece of drywall properly. That’s in the instance of a drywall panel going onto a wall. If it is going into a ceiling, you need to add 8 more screws for a total count of 36 screws.
