i really liked your website. kindly send some video clips on how to screw dry walls on the ceiling with resilient channels.
It might be helpfull for the average homeowner/handyman if you tell him there are two different types of drywall screws ..... fine threads for metal studs and course threads for attaching to wooden studs and also special little self tapping screws for installing the studs.
