Thread Drywall

How can I get screws to be flush with sheetrock?

I installed quiet rock. It was 1/2 in thick. The screws I'm using are Grip Rite Fasteners. They are Coarse Thread Drywall Screw 1-1/4" 3.175. I used a drill with a sheetrock drill bit.

I drilled the screws in straight (most of the time) but they would never go in all the way. It seemed that when the head of the screw hit the sheetrock. The sheetrock would bubble around the head and that would be it. (Very few made it past the bubble that I describe and went flush or alittle bit in on the quit rock) I couldn't get the screw in any further.

I am ready to spackle but I know that you will see the screws. Should I use tape, would that hide the screws, or is there a way to get the screws in just a little bit more that I don't know?

You could hit it with a hammer to countersink it.

I'm being serious. Carefully hit the screw head with a hammer to drive it in just a little, most of the time you will make a slight dent in the sheet rock but you can spackle in the dip. You may have to sand it a bit to get it smooth and flush but it's worth it. If you tape and spackle over the head you will see a bump when you paint.
