Hi, my name is Mark McClain. In this clip, we’re going to show you how to repair a nail pop. The nail pop is when the sheetrock is away from the stud. This is a way to identify that you have some nail pops. The best thing to do is draw those screws in, screw the sheet up, I think one more here. So, make sure that you actually screw the drywall back to wall, making sure that the screw is attached to the stud. Slightly sink the screw down. Now, we are going to move ahead and fix these nail pops right there here. A lot of the sheetrock was loose away from the wall. So, we are going to go ahead and take care of the next row for your work over here. Then you back with your hammer. You take care of the ones there. Now, we are just sinking back in the ones that are popped out and we just start fixing those. We are actually putting some hot mud in here. We are going to put a little chemical mud, we put a little water, mix it up. That will then able it to dry a little faster. I am going to, and then mix this up. Now, you can speed up the process this one. The other one is taking about 24 hours. The bag says right on it 20 minutes or 40 minutes or whatever, there are different minutes in this one. I am just going to put some of the mud on. You just want to make sure that you cover the nail or the screw that you put in there and tap it in is what you need, put some mud on. Basically, you are going to take your right back off, just hold it down and then strike it all the way up to the wall. Just take it right off, I am taking all the mud off, then wiping it clean, simple as that. Just put a little mud at the end of your knife then up to wall. Then roll those down. Let that dry then you will be ready for the next coat. As it gets hard, you just try to sponge on the edge, it takes away all the edge. You let that set up a little bit; make sure you do not take the mud out of the hole. In our next clip, we can also show how to fix a bad seam.
