How to Patch Drywall
It is inevitable that at a certain point, we all want to have a hole in a place in our home that we need to repair. The bad news itself is a simple inconvenience as well as cubicles when it is located in a clear zone. The good news is, this is very easy to fix. The better news is, it’s quite easy to fix it and make it look like there wasn’t a chance to have a hole in the drywall at the start!
The special drywall patch that I have been through recently is to cover up holes in drywall that must be cut to lower the pipe leading to the kitchen sink. My wife finally got the sink she wanted. Very exciting, those who understand me know how short I am … I can stand up straight in the sink and you can’t even look at my head !! Okay, so that’s a bit of a stretch, but the point is that it’s a very deep sink. Moreover, the tub is so deep, that after being discharged, the pipe that is connected at this time is very large. Because there is no [cheap] technology that opposes gravity, one option is to cut the cubicle and lower the pipe.
I want to arrange the sink installation and the actual piping modification in a separate post. For this time, we only focus on correcting the bad dreams of drywall that we made to carry out these projects.
First of all you want to take a drywall saw and cut the debris. This is assuming you unplanned put something in the cubicle (sort of like your fist, yes, you know who you are). The dry cubicle is about to collapse, but certainly not to be a good clean form. So, start near the edge of the damaged zone and fairly square cut to eliminate the damaged drywall. I planned to make a hole that I fixed. So, when I cut it, I was very careful and saved the drywall that I got rid of. If this issue is intertwined in your project, live the same thing, it wants to save $ 10 or more to buy drywall. The smallest dimension of drywall is 8×2. There could be something different, but this is the smallest I know. If you are not planned to make a hole in the cubicle, maybe you should buy this sheet. It runs near $ 11 at Lowes. If you do have to do this, go ahead and measure your hole and you can cut the gypsum so it is worth the zone. Have close, but not necessarily perfect.
Next, you want to cut your piece of wood that is close as wide (it takes a little space on the side to put your hands in place while screwing) and is closer to 2 inches at the top and bottom. Just imagine a rectangle positioned vertically above a square. After being cut, place it in a hole and place a wood screw or gypsum on the hole so that it can catch wood in the right or left corner. Go for the same thing for opposing angles and make both angles at the bottom of the hole. At this time, you can place the piece of drywall that you cut (or put) on the wood that is currently tied to the chamber. Pretty install and install 4 screws in pieces so that it is tight to the wood too
The hard part is basically trying. At least measure, cut, and fuck! Now is the time for him not to be very striking. Now, take your putty knife and dig up the compound compound. Press into the crack you observed near the piece of drywall that has just been stuck. After this is over, you can take the drywall tape and cut as far as you need to cover all four sides of the cut. You want the masking tape to cover the gap so that there are some masking tape in the booth and some tape on the new piece that you just put in. With the advice of my father-in-law, I obtained a small bowl of water and dipped the strip. ribbon in it moments before I applied to the cubicle. It seems to “fill” a little and always help him always better. Plus, it helps the compound get better with masking tape. After applying the plaster, it is good to start applying the compound to the chamber. You want to spread it close to 3 “outside your work zone to the inside edge of the ribbon. You want to be careful not to apply it very much, because you don’t want bumps to appear in the zone. Don’t be greedy with that, it can have the reverse effect and come in. However, you can always sand it if you improve very much and you can increase more if you don’t improve appreciably.
After the compound is applied, you must let it dry for about 24 hours. That’s with instructions on most compounds. If you don’t use that much (if you don’t put it in one zone), you can continue working in a shorter time. It just needs to be really dry. After your area is dry, you want to take the sanding equipment (hopefully it’s sturdy, but you can also use sanding beams) and start sanding the compound to make it smooth. You want to look as much as the original booth, so pay attention to the edges. Sometimes, putty knives want to attach their lips to a compound near the edge. You may not look at them, but when you paint a path, you want to see it. After the sanding is over, check your work. There may be zones where you need to increase more compounds. Sometimes, a small hole will be created where there is air in the bottom of the environment. Fill in this … again, they might not seem like a big problem, but when you paint, they want to stand out.
After you are satisfied with the compound and really dry, rinse. You want to remove all dust and debris from the cubicle before you go further. At this point, assuming your room is textured, you can take the texture can you bought from the material notes above and apply it. Check out the instructions. You might be obliged to play a little because most textures have different settings for different effects. Some of it might be like a fog to him, but it has arrangements to make it look more like a spark. You must be a judge in this matter. My suggestion is to take a cardboard box and practice, then compare it to a cubicle to see how it looks. This thing is dry flash. So, once it’s in the room and you’re happy with it, you’re ready to paint it. Hopefully you have a coat of paint that you originally used in something in your garage. If not, you must take a piece of drywall to your hardware feature store and make it accordingly.
Hopefully you don’t want to have big problems with your drywall. However, if you do, I hope that there is some pretty useful data here to help you patch the hole! If not, give me an opinion about your atmosphere. Let me try to expose what is the problem and give you feedback. I’ve messed up a lot, especially recently so I got the answers I need!
