Screw Pops Caused By Stucco Removal And Hardie Install


Have a recurring customer who had their house resided recently. 70's stucco removed and new hardie plank installed. The interior of the house was recently redone with a lot of the exterior walls being new drywall. Homeowners noticed drywall screw pops on several exterior walls mid way through the siding and have asked me my opinion as the siding guys are not taking any responsibility.

I do know that the drywall was in good shape prior and that something the siding guys did caused the pops. Most likely banging the old roofing nails from the stucco wire in. I'm curious what some opinions are on this? Is it likely that the screws that popped were set too deep to begin with? Could all the banging have caused properly set drywall screws to pop? The studs are old hard fir if that means anything.

Anyways, it got me wondering and because they've been good customers i'm interested in giving them my informed opinion one way or the other... I just dont know what my opinion is

caused by stucco removal and mostly by installing new siding.

siding guys should have brought it up in their proposal and contract language to deal with it....

I agree. I think it's to be expected on a job like this. Probably no contract or they wouldn't be asking me. I'm going to stay out of it but piqued my curiosity.
