Sometimes, no matter how careful we are, things happen to our walls. People bang into walls, accidents happen, etc. In the event that something happens to your drywall, it’s important to know how to patch holes. Don’t worry; this is a simple process, and anyone can do it. Here is our mini-guide to patching holes in your drywall:
- STEP ONE: Gather Supplies. Before beginning your patch project, you’ll need to have the proper tools. These include: paper drywall tape, a cordless drill, scrap wood, drywall knives, and wallboard.
- STEP TWO: Secure the Wallboard. Next, you’ll want to secure the wallboard in place! Cur a square patch of drywall that is larger than the hole you’re patching, and hold this to the wall. Then, trace around it so that you can cut a close match out of the wall.
- STEP THREE: Patch it Up. Now, it’s time to patch things up! Place the scrap wood inside the hole, screw the drywall above and below the hole, and screw your drywall patch onto the wood.
- STEP FOUR: Finish the Job. Simply finish the patch with tape and joint compound – then, you’re all done!
