What Are Nail Pops and Why Do They Happen? 

Nail pops are a common occurrence in drywall. They happen when the nails or screws that hold the drywall in place start to work their way out. This common type of drywall damage can happen for several reasons, including:

  • Moisture: Moisture can cause the drywall to swell, putting pressure on the nails or screws and causing them to pop out.
  • Age: Over time, the nails or screws can rust, weakening them and making them more likely to pop out.
  • Improper installation: Improperly installed nails or screws are more likely to pop out.

Nail pops can be unsightly and even dangerous. They can also let in moisture, which can lead to mold growth. If you have nail pops in your drywall, fixing them as soon as possible is essential. Not only will it preserve the integrity of your wall, but it improves the aesthetics and value of your home or office.

PatchMaster is a leading provider of drywall repair services. We have the expertise and experience to fix nail pops quickly and effectively. We will use the same materials and techniques as the original installers, so you can be sure the repair will be invisible.

How PatchMaster Fixes Nail Pops

When you hire PatchMaster to complete your drywall repair, you can rest assured we will take the steps necessary to execute the repair to a flawless finish. The first step in fixing a nail pop is to remove the popped nail or screw. We will then use a special compound to fill the hole. The compound is expertly sanded by one of our near-dustless sanders and painted to match the surrounding drywall.

PatchMaster takes a meticulous and professional approach to nail pop repairs. Our expert technicians employ industry-leading techniques and high-quality materials to ensure a flawless and long-lasting finish. We understand that every nail pop repair is unique and requires a customized approach tailored to the specific needs of our client's walls or ceilings.

In addition to our ability to provide seamless repair, PatchMaster uses state-of-the-art specialized tools like near-dustless sanders to create a strong and durable repair. The most dangerous types of dust are those with small particles called PM2.5. In some cases, these particles can be inhaled deep into the lungs. PatchMaster uses advanced technology that provides a dust-free finish that is 99.97% effective in removing particles smaller than 0.3µm in size.*
