CertainTeed Gypsum

The protrusion of screw or nail heads above the gypsum panel surface is caused by one or more of the following:
  • Lumber shrinkage occurring after gypsum panel product application,
  • Loose attachment of the gypsum panel product to the framing,
  • Improperly aligned, twisted, bent, warped, or bowed framing,
  • Incorrect fastener length, or
  • Improper fastening
Fastener pops are largely caused by lumber shrinkage due to initially high moisture content lumber. CertainTeed Gypsum has some great tips on nail pops.
