Installing drywall panels onto resilient channels is one of the first lines of defense against sound transmition through walls or ceilings.

Here is a summary overview of their use.  Notice there are more details in one of the videos which follow.

We are restoring the historic Snyder Mercantile building in Tenakee Springs, Alaska. The owner's residence is upstairs so we have resilent channels crossing the joists, 5/8" drywall then goes on then 5/8" of old growth recycled fir t&g. My question is about fastening the t&g. We don't want to screw it to the joists which would defeat the resilient channel concept I reckon. Can we just glue it with construction adhesive and throw a finish nail through the tongue into the channel to hold it until the glue sets up?

Really appreciate your opinion on this.
Thanks , Gordon

Hello Gordon,
Yes you can glue the t&g to drywall. If you want to avoid the finish nail -- use Quick Grab adhesive. No nails needed.
