Simple Ways to Fix Damaged Drywall

Drywalls can be damaged due to nail popping, furniture scuffs, loose joint tape, wear and tear, damage caused by vermin and moisture, among others. Fixing damaged drywall whether the hole is big or small is easier than you might think, in this article, we will give you simple steps on how you can fix damaged drywall.

  1. For small holes, use a putty knife to fill in the hole with mud, make sure that it is really back-filled so it is strong when it dries.

  2. For bigger holes, clean up the edges of the hole and put a large mesh adhesive patch. Make sure that it is nice and smooth and there are no creases or wrinkles with the patch. Fill in and push a lot of mud into the area that has the hole in it as we want to get a lot of mud in the back of the wall to rebuild the drywall behind. Once it is filled in, we can cover up the whole patch itself to make the surface nice and clean.

  3. After the mud totally dried up, sand it to smoothen the surface.

  4. Apply the second coat which is a skim coating by using a bigger putty knife and make sure that the area is thoroughly covered. Our goal here is to achieve a smooth finish.

  5. Use the feathering technique by applying stronger pressure in the outside of the patch area than the inside to produce a smooth and gradual transition from the old wall to a new patch.

  6. Cover the area by applying texture spray, then use a 10 or 12-inch knife and pull it evenly to make it as smooth as possible because this will be the final coat.

  7. Sand the mud compound until it is leveled surrounding the drywall, once dried, sanded, and smoothened, apply paint to the drywall.
