there is a tutorial demonstrating HOW TO INSTALL DRYWALL ON A CEILING.

That guy is putting a screw into the ceiling.

enter image description here

Is the white part pointed out by red arrow drywall? If yes, where is paper. That guy said want "drywall screw to be flush with the paper"


Drywall is made of gypsum surrounded with paper. The paper is the front and back surface of the drywall.

    So the screw is tightened so that the top of its head is flush with, or just slightly under, the surface of the drywall so that covering is easier.

  • I'd describe it as 'barely below the surface of the paper". (If you slide a taping knife across the screw and it clicks, it needs to be deeper.) And if you go too deep, just put in another screw a couple of inches away. Feb 1 '20 at 20:36
