Atypical drywall install

Jerry Simon

Recommended Posts

In the garage attic, I saw these metal nailer-strips (?) attached to the bottoms of the trusses, and the garage ceiling drywall was screwed into the strips. Normally, the drywall would be nailed/screwed to the bottoms of the trusses. In fact, in the house attic, the drywall was nailed to the bottoms of the trusses. Why so in the just garage? Some sort of fire-separation thingy???
