How to repair your own Drywall
These days, with everyone social distancing and staying home more, the kids home from school and lettings all of their energy out indoors, accidents are bound to happen. Holes in drywall and stucco can happen pretty easily in the home and if you’re not too picky about the area, or can cover the area up there are some things you can do to patch the holes up yourself.
You’ll need some basic tools to get started:
• Wet sponge of spray bottle
• Wall hole patch
• Putty knife
• Drywall patching compound(spackle or plaster)
• Wall hole patch
• Wall texture spray
After you have all of those tools, make sure to clean the area around the hole, clean out any debris or loose drywall, then sand the edges of the hole.
Once the edge of the wall is sanded, you can attach the wall patch and apply the compound to the wall patch as the instructions indicate on your package.
Once you have the compound on, you can use a putty knife to smooth out the area.
once its smooth, wait about a half hour and then start sanding it down, until your wall is nice and smooth.
Still with me? if all of this sounds like too much work, call the drywall repair professionals in Ormond Beach to repair your drywall, stucco, or plaster walls. However if you are still following along, once you have the area smooth you spray on the texture spray. Make sure to read the instructions on the can as they vary and you need to follow the instructions of the exact product you’re using.
It definitely won’t compare to a professional look, which would be alright for a child’s playroom, or somewhere that nobody goes.
After you’ve done those steps, you’re ready to paint! Use a paint that matches the wall color and then apply a few coats to get the desired look.
and voila! you have fixed your own hole in the wall!
