Screw pops in walls
Hi, we are just finishing up construction of a 7500 square foot house. A couple of months ago, our GC noticed a few screw pops in the sheetrock. They mudded over them and repainted those areas. Now, we are moving into the house and finishing up final touches and we have noticed screw pops everywhere. They are in just about every room and leave a round blemish on the walls. Has anyone had any experience with this? Our GC says this is the first house he has ever dealt with this. I read up on it and it seems to be common in new houses as the wood shrinks and settles. But to this extent? So, who is responsible for paying to fix all of this? I assume the GC is. He is bringing the guy down this week that we bought the lumber from to see if maybe this is something the lumber place can file on their insurance?? Someone is going to have to pay for all of these walls to be repainted. Any experience with this will be greatly appreciated!
