Nail popping repair; it depends on the cause of the nail pop, if the pop is convex and on the ceiling near a wall and the nail head is visible, the nail should be pulled out using a pliers and spackle the hole over, do not try to hammer the nail back as it will reappear and also in doing so you are not providing a firm attachment point for the drywall. At Drywall Repair Team we recommend that the nails be installed within 16 inches of a wall to prevent these types of nail pops from happening. If the nail pop is more than 2 feet away from the wall and looks like a dimple, you should stand on a ladder step or stool and push up on the drywall. If the dimple moves then the dry wall has pulled away and the nails has remained intact and the determine which direction of the ceiling the joints runs and then use a drywall screw placed in line with the joist to draw the drywall back in place.
