How to Fix Drywall Nail Pops/Screw Pops

In this video I show you how to fix drywall nail pops – one of the most common types of household drywall damage. Screw pops  happen when the wooden wall frame in your home dries and shrinks, causing drywall screws or nails to shift. It happens most often when a house is new and the wood of the frame continues to shrink as the wood dries. The resulting disturbance of the paint and plaster is usually round in shape and ugly.

The video below is part of a online video course I offer called Patching Walls Like a Pro. If you want to finally fix those ratty walls of yours, this course will give you the know-how.
