So we’re undergoing a kitchen renovation and I just noticed that in our living room ceiling (part of the same “great room” as the kitchen), there are 6 drywall nails that suddenly popped through. I know that this is fairly common in newer homes due to settling, but is this something I need to be worried about? We did shorten a wall in the kitchen by 3 feet, but it was non-loadbearing and 2/3 of the wall is still there.
I guess if these all happened over time I wouldn’t be very concerned, but the fact that they all popped out within a week of each other (? my best guess as I typically don’t stare at the ceiling very often), makes me wonder. They’re all near the peak of my vaulted ceiling. Could it be from all the banging around/demo in the kitchen?
Any thoughts are appreciated!
