Drywall mistakes happen – whether it is from a DIY project or new construction. Here are a few of the most common drywall mistakes:
1. Over Sanding — Trying too hard to smooth a drywall joint. If you sand too vigorously, you can actually remove part of the paper face.
2. Drywall Pops — These are nails that have moved from under the surface of the drywall and popped through the finish. Screw are less likely to create pops.
3. Overcuts in Drywall — Accidentally overcutting a drywall hole. The hole needs to be filled in before finishing.
4. Bubbled Tape — Appears when the tape has been completely embeded into the joint compound or the bond has been unsuccessful. The tape can become loose and a bubble appears on the wall.
