You sound like you know your drywall business. I have another question for you. Whoever drywalled my house did a lousy tape job. In most every room you can see the seams. Most are concave but a few bulge out. In some rooms you can count the nails holding the drywall up. Can these be repaired by filling them in and sanding the ones that bulge even with a few coats of paint on them or how shoud one proceed to correct this problem?

Any help would be appreciated.

Yes it can be done take a utility knife and cut out the bad spots,for the nail pops see if you can set them in with a hammer then put another screw next to it.now is the time for mesh and 90 min.joint compound on the cracks and no mesh on the screws it will set quickly then use an easy sand, I use plus 3. What kind of walls are they should asked first textured smooth enamaled ?

Sounds like good advice. The walls are not textured but smooth with flat paint.

Thanks
