Thank you so much.
If the screws are backing out, you will need to countersink into the sheetrock. Put a thin coat of mud over the holes and feather out. With a damp sponge, smooth out once the mud is dry. Repeat for a minimum of 3 times. Then you can paint. We hired someone to hang our sheetrock & finish. When they left, it was only 1 coat of mud. We ended up paying them only for hanging because they insisted that is all is needed. I think that is the standard now and it just isn't going to hold up over time.
