What To Do About Nail Bulges In Drywall?
While kilzing the walls in the house, I've noticed bulges in a straight line that would match that of the studs. Apparently, the Drywall was nailed into the studs instead of screwed. Anyway to get rid of these bulges to get a smoother looking wall? Perhaps this is only a Winter time, drying/contracting issue? At any rate, I was thinking of putting in a drywall screw right next to the bulge to fasten the drywall back to the studs but will this make the nail heads pop through the drywall?
