For a immediate estimate, call Hole in the Wall Drywall Restore at 407.283.1069. Then there are two methods to repair nail pops: use a screwdriver or hammer to drive the nail again into the studs (image 1), then bracket every nail head with closely spaced drywall screws (image 2); or, remove the nail and drive a screw as an alternative, together with a second screw nearby, to re-secure the drywall to the stud.
Use metal snips to chop a piece of new nook bead to suit the restore area (picture 3). Apply a coat of joint compound to the nook, set the bead in place then apply another layer of joint compound over it. Let dry fully then add one other layer or two of compound depending on what is needed (picture four).
While the compound continues to be wet, place a strip of fiberglass tape over the seam, bridging the hole between the ends of the present tape (image four). Use a putty knife to softly flatten wrinkles and to bed the tape into the compound. The cost of hiring a contractor to restore injury to drywall ranges between $125 and $1,200, relying on the extent of the harm.
Now, screw your drywall patch to the wooden cleats, again being careful to not break the drywall’s paper coating. Use a utility knife to chop vertically alongside the drywall, connecting the top and bottom cuts from the hacksaw on the left and right sides.
Place the cleats flush with the face of the existing studs and set up them with drywall screws or nails. Drywall damage that extends throughout a number of wall studs requires more in depth reinforcement and restore. We have been more than happy with the method and results, and are pleased to recommend you as a contractor.
