Located in Jacksonville Florida Mr Drywall has been operating for over 20 years, bringing excellence in Drywall Repair to the Jacksonville Area. Lift the edges of the overlapping paper and be sure to get a good coat of drywall compound under all overlapping paper. A hole in drywall that’s larger than the head of a nail requires more repair than just the application of some spackling. Now, screw your drywall patch to the wooden cleats, again being careful not to break the drywall’s paper coating.
Every HIW Drywall Repair staff member has received extensive training, featuring industry best practices and proprietary techniques to ensure that the repair looks as if it never even occurred. Newly formed drywall sheets are cut from a belt, the result of a continuous manufacturing process.
Note that in some cases we show mesh tape with lightweight or all-purpose compound applied over it. Strictly speaking, for maximum strength mesh tape is best used with setting-type drywall compound. Cover the hole or dent with fast-drying spackle to bring the spackle level with the drywall surface and let it dry 24 hours – or the time recommended by the manufacturer’s instructions.
Set the drywall patch in place and screw it into the furring strips, sinking the screws beneath the surface of the drywall. After the drywall joint compound has dried, the drywall is then sanded down to create a smooth surface. The BEAR CLAW DRYWALL REPAIR CLIPS can utilize a piece of 12.5mm (1/2″) drywall to repair a wall of any thickness.
All you have to do now is prime the patch using a drywall primer then paint the patch to match the existing wall color. Let it dry, then apply more drywall compound, feathering the edges as you go. Like we did for the patches we discussed earlier, it will take several coats, as well as a light sanding, between each coat.
