Why Choose Lituo Drywall Screws?

As a drywall screw manufacturer with 20 years of experience, Lituo has leading technology and rich production experience in the production of drywall screws.

Superior Holding Power

The drywall screws produced by Lituo have a unique thread design that provides excellent holding power. They are specifically designed to hold drywall securely in place, ensuring that it stays flat and flush against the framing. This superior holding power also makes them ideal for other applications, such as attaching wood to metal or other materials.

Easy Installation

Unlike traditional nails, drywall screws can be easily installed using a power drill. This makes the installation process faster and more efficient, which is essential for large-scale projects. Additionally, drywall screws can be easily removed and replaced without damaging the surrounding materials.

Reduced Risk of Damage

Traditional nails can cause damage to drywall and other materials, especially if they are overdriven or underdriven. Drywall screws, on the other hand, are designed to minimize the risk of damage. They have a sharp, pointed tip that allows them to be driven easily into the material without causing any damage.


The most common type of drywall screw is the 16-gauge screw. This screw is typically used for attaching 1/2-inch drywall to wood studs. If you’re working with thicker drywall, you may need to use a stronger screw. For example, a 20-gauge screw can be used for attaching 5/8-inch drywall to wood studs.

Coarse drywall screws feature coarse threads to secure drywall boards to studs. Fine drywall screws feature smaller heads and are used to secure drywall to metal studs. Self-drilling screws and pan-head screws can be used with metal studs or frames. Trim-head screws are used to attach wood trim over drywall boards.

Most drywall screws are a #6 with a bugle head. The geometry of the head makes it vulnerable to snap off, especially when used to fasten hardwoods.

Most common — 1-1/4”: Use 1-1/4” drywall screws to secure 1/2″ drywall installed on wood-stud walls. …

Less common — 1-5/8”: To prevent sags, thicker drywall measuring 5/8” is used on ceilings.

While nails tend to be more flexible and hold up better against shear pressure—or lateral force—screws have much better grip and tensile strength, which ultimately keeps drywall from pulling away from the studs. When it comes to holding power, screws simply can’t be beaten.

Wood screws are better than drywall screws for woodworking projects. Drywall screws are made of hardened, brittle steel, and the shaft will often snap during installation, especially if they’re screwed into hardwoods.

For general construction, screws can be up to 8 inches long for use in thicker materials. Since drywall is so thin, 8-inch screws won’t be used, but the thickness of the drywall still determines drywall screw length. The rule of thumb for screw length is: For ¼-inch drywall, use 1-inch to 1 ¼-inch sheetrock screws.

Drywall screws are specifically designed for use in drywall or gypsum board installation. They differ from other screws in a few key ways:

  1. Thread design: Drywall screws have a sharp, self-tapping thread that helps them easily penetrate the drywall without causing damage. The thread design also helps to secure the drywall to the framing behind it.

  2. Length: Drywall screws are usually longer than other screws to accommodate the thickness of the drywall and allow for a secure installation. The length of the screw is typically between 1 and 1.5 inches.

  3. Head design: Drywall screws have a flat head with a slightly rounded top that sits flush with the surface of the drywall. This design allows for easy finishing and a smooth surface.

  4. Material: Drywall screws are typically made from hardened steel or stainless steel, which provides strength and durability.

Overall, the design of drywall screws is optimized for use in drywall installation, making them a reliable and efficient choice for this specific task.
