One of the most annoying home problems involves one of the smallest bits of the construction materials. Popped drywall screws are a real pain, especially if they’re coming through beautifully painted walls. The problem usually happens when the lumber to which the drywall is attached shrinks, especially if it was installed while the wood contained a large amount of moisture. Screws popping out can be especially bad when you have the heat running in winter, but any time the frame warps or changes shape can cause this problem.

Without a level subfloor, your hardwood or tile flooring can buckle and crack, damaging these expensive materials. Prevent this by taking the job of levelling your floors seriously!
