How to Hang Drywall Ceilings — by Home Repair Tutor

Wanna learn how to hang drywall on ceilings the easy way?

If the answer’s YES, then you’ll love our video tutorial. Steve White from SRW Contracting ( shows you how he hangs drywall by himself.

All you need are a few tools and some elbow grease, which always comes in handy 😀

Steve remodels bathrooms every week and the first step, after demo, is to install the ceiling.

Often times he’s by himself. So he uses a drywall lift to hang ceilings. This costs about $40 to rent, although Steve owns one.

Once the drywall is flush to the the ceiling joist you can screw it to the joist using an impact driver and drywall setter. The setter costs about $5 for a set of 4.

Make sure the drywall is square with the top plate. Then you can drill screws every 16 inches on the Xs that are on the drywall. If your joists are 24 on center you should apply a bead of liquid nail to them then attach the drywall.
