I have recently been told during a renovation that glueing drywall to the studs is a new standard practice. After the drywall was installed instead of seeing all screws I see nails & screws, I especially see nails in locations that will be under the final molding around closets & windows but not exlusively. There are ~30% nails & 70% screws total. When I questioned why nails were used at all and not only screws that were indicated on the plan I was told this was standard practice now & the glue holds everything tight. I was also told the finish molding would cover the nails & the glue will hold.
My main question is will the nails & glue hold up over time, we are consantly repairing nail pops in our 40 year old home and I wanted to avoid that, hence the note indicating screws on our plan. Also why would they not use screws everywhere? Have you seen nails & glue with screws in drywall, is this a standard practice?
Also, are the screws that will be under the final molding typically mudded & sanded?
