Can I Fix Nail Pops Myself?

Although you may hope to save money with a DIY nail pop fix, the fact is that because nail pops are often a symptom of another problem, you should instead contact a professional expert.

It can be expensive to invest in any sort of home repairs. The question many people ask is, can you fix nail pops at home instead of talking to an expert? Although you may hope to save money with a DIY nail pop fix, the fact is that because nail pops are often a symptom of another problem, you should instead contact a professional expert. These are just a few of the reasons you probably shouldn’t try to DIY your nail pops fix. 

A Symptom of a Deeper Issue

Sometimes, nail pops in walls can be purely cosmetic. However, it’s much more common for nail pops to show up because of a deeper problem, typically a foundational problem.

Especially if you’re dealing with nail pops everywhere, you don’t want to brush over these problems. Plus, if you try to DIY a fix for what appears to be a small problem, you may end up with nail pops all over your house instead.

A free inspection from JES can help alleviate these fears. JES is well-known for its honesty. If your home doesn’t need an expensive foundation solution, a JES foundation repair expert will be upfront with you about that.

Foundation Problems Can Be Deadly

The foundation of your home is the most important part, and it’s the part you want to keep solid. If you end up with a foundation problem, it can build to a place where it may even become deadly.

You don’t want to deal with that kind of serious foundation problem on your own. You should always take nail pops seriously because they could be indicative of an incredibly serious problem.

When you contact JES for a free inspection, you get the best of both worlds. If you do have a foundation problem, you’ll get immediate advice on how to fix that problem. However, if it’s just a cosmetic issue, a JES foundation repair expert will deliver you that information immediately. 

You Can’t Know the Full Extent

If your nail pops are cosmetic, you can fix them on your own time, often with spackle and paint. However, if they’re a symptom of a foundation issue, you’re going to need to talk to a professional.

The problem is that without an expert who can tell the difference, you won’t be able to tell which nail pops you can cover over yourself and which ones you should pay more attention to.

A foundation inspection requires precision tools that you probably don’t have access to. That’s why it’s important to contact JES and request a free inspection. After the inspection, you’ll know that an expert took all the required measurements and processed that information to give you genuine advice on your nail pops problem.
