Screw pops (also called nail pops) are a common problem in new homes as wet framing lumber dries and shrinks. Fixing them involves removing all the old compound, replacing with fresh, then sanding. ...

Repairing larger holes involves the use of setting compound applied as a foundation layer. Another essential trick is trimming away frazzled paper from the edge of the damage zone.
