After having vinyl siding installed I noticed hundreds of nail pops on every perimeter interior wall in my house. My house was built in 1968 so I don't attribute it to moist studs.

The pattern of the NEW nail pops is not that of the normal 35 years of wear-n-tear of my walls. These all arrived at the same time and have the same pattern, I can now find EVERY stud in my home from across the room.

Six neighbors had houses of the same age sided by the same contractor and didn't have nail pops. The only difference with my home was that their homes took 3-4 days in mild winter weather - mine took 2 weeks in below zero degree weather...any ideas as to why this occurred. The contractor refuses any responsiblity and I need to be sure that it was a result of the siding installation before making any further moves. What else could have caused this? Please help. Thanks!
