Does anyone have this in any written "official" form from any of the big drywall manufacturers?

So they called this morning, they want to come tomorrow to fix the pops. Problem -- there's a foot of snow on the ground and diffused light (light coming from all directions) is flooding the house. You can't see ANYTHING! They also refuse to use a "trouble light" on the wall to find flaws because that's not their policy.

UPDATE: He said "they have to pay out of pocket for the drywall guy to use a light. He agreed to use a light, but, we won't come back out to retouch the paint."

He said they also will not be replacing any screws that were overdriven as the directive is only to drive in new nails above/or/below a popped nail, but not a screw. Hmmm. Does anyone know for a fact otherwise?

I can't find exactly what I'm looking for in this document:

Not sure what is going to happen here. The original drywall crew was fired because of poor workmanship. This wouldn't be like this if they didn't screw it up so badly to begin with.

"Mark the pops" they told me."

Yet one more reason why all of my jobs are done with skim coat plaster. There is absolutely nothing I like about drywall. Nothing.
