Small Hole Drywall Repair

Small holes can typically be filled without requiring the damaged drywall to be cut away. What we do is, we first clean out any debris in the hole by smoothing the edges with a rasp. If the hole in your drywall is around 1 centimeter in diameter, we use simple spackling paste to fill the hole. We recommend to use a drywall knife to spread the spackling over the hole and wait for the spackling to dry. To finish off the job, use sandpaper to sand down the spackling over the hole.

Golf Ball Sized Hole Drywall Repair

For slightly larger holes, our carpenters use a professional patch kit. We first sand down the edges of the drywall with a rasp to remove any of the drywall debris. Next, we cover the hole with a self-adhesive mesh drywall patch. When this is done, we cover the patch with joint compound and apply the joint compound with a putty knife. Once the joint compound is dry, we then smooth it by sanding it down with sandpaper.

Larger Hole Drywall Repair

To fix a larger hole in your drywall, we use a serrated drywall saw to cut out a rectangle or square around the hole. For safety reasons, we always turn off the electricity in the room to avoid electrocution in case any live wires get cut. Next, we cut a piece of drywall to fit in the hole and screw the drywall patch into the wall using drywall screws inserted into a stud. We then patch the edges of the hole using mesh drywall tape and cover the drywall tape in joint compound. We finish the job by sanding the joint compound when it's fully dried.
