Question Nails or screws for drywall????

This will be a fairly big job, replacing drywall in two rooms, walls and ceilings. Should I rent a nail gun or use my cordless drills? Thank you.

Use your cordless drills and drywall screws, especially for the ceiling. Nails can pop. Screws won't.
Just dimple the sheetrock surface at the screwhead without breaking the paper.
Good luck!

You can use a drywall dimpler attachment for your cordless drill. Go to your local building center and ask for them from the tool area. Dewalt has one and so do other manufacturers. Some of them are expensive. I have found the Dewalt ones to be around $3 for a package of 2 of them.
