Is the reason that drywall is supposed to be hung on a ceiling perpendicular to the joists a structural matter or aesthetical to attempt and hide sagging joists? I just hung a ceiling in my office onto 2x6 joists spanning 10'6" @ 16"o.c and I hung the boards parallel to the joists. Does anyone foresee any problems I may encounter in the future. I will be putting a crows foot type texture on the ceiling as well.
No announcement yet.
