Have you tried to pull any yet. If they did not glue it will come off so easy.

You Americans are crazy. I've done so much drywall in my life and have never seen or heard of anyone glueing it.

What I'm hoping to find is foam that can be sprayed into my finished walls so that I dont have to pull all the dry wall down. Any one come across a product or company that offers a product/service like this? If not I'll have a fun weekend of pulling down dry wall that was nailed in place
Did you actually pull a permit for this?? If so, WHY?? If not, whos cares about the damn code?!?! Insulate as you see fit and finish it off.

What the out of control building inspecters in this state dont know wont hurt them, or cost you more headache!

Do you not have a plastic vapour barrier between the framing and drywall on exterior walls??? If so does the liquid nails stick to the plastic vapour barrier?? It sounds like a good way to ensure you wouldn't get any screw pop outs from loose drywall, or over tightened screws...

i havent pulled permits but i will be. a - i'm doing most of the work and want it done right and to code, b - i want to be able to claim it as finished sqft so i can get some value back when i go to sell the house. i have to do this regardless so i might as well get some financial benefit. i'm sure my taxes are going to go up but should also be able to get rid of PMI if my assessed value goes up.

i dont plan on doing any plastic vapor barrier, the foam board is going to be my vapor barrier. i was researching it on the internet and the theory i liked is that vapor barrier against the drywall would just keep the moisture trapped inside the wall potentially causing more issues. i've already spoken with an inspector in my town and he's okay with my plans
