 The thing about drywall is that, while it may be a perfectly fine construction material, it can also get damaged fairly easy. A fall, an accident, a blow or some other kind of mishap, may mean that you end up with a hole in your wall.

This problem can be very annoying but thankfully, it’s rather simple to repair (as long as the hole isn’t too big). If you’d like to deal with this situation yourself, Buffalo Builders Inc., DKI in Colorado Springs will share this guide on how you can repair your drywall.

How to Repair a Hole in Drywall

  1. Get your supplies: a repair patch that can cover the hole completely, drywall compound, a putty knife, sandpaper, paint/paint brushes, blankets, old clothing.
  2. First, get prepared: you’ll need to move away any furniture that’s nearby or cover it with blankets so they don’t get ruined. Likewise, wear old clothes you don’t mind getting dirty.
  3. Then, prep the wall. Start by removing any loose pieces of drywall that may be hanging in there still. Then, clean the area of any debris or dust so it is ready to be repaired.
  4. Now, it’s time to repair the hole. First, place the repair patch over the hole, making sure to cover it entirely. Then, use your putty knife to spread a layer of drywall compound all over the patch. Allow it to dry thoroughly before moving forward.
  5. Lastly, you just need to fix the details. For example, if the drywall is rough and uneven, use the sandpaper to smooth it out. Also, make sure to paint over the repaired area so there isn’t a noticeable spot on your wall.
