Drywall Repair

Nail pops in drywall are a fairly common repair for homeowners. They are especially common on stairwells and walls beneath stairs. But don’t worry; it’s an easy fix, here’s how:

  1. Begin by digging out the old nail or screw with a knife or pair of pliers.
  2. Next, install new drywall screws above and/or below the old holes so they are just slightly below the drywall surface.
  3. Fill all recesses with drywall joint compound, layering on more as each coat dries.
  4. If the surrounding drywall is textured you can match it by dabbing a scrap of carpet onto the fresh compound to feather it out and match the surrounding wall.
