When it comes to repairing cracks, punctures and small leaks in your ceilings and walls, Chris’ Advanced Drywall Repair is the #1 choice for Laguna Niguel drywall.

Carefully sand the dried compound, using a drywall sanding block or increasingly finer grits or sandpaper.
The California patch” skips straight to the tape (while some approaches even skip the tape and use the actual paper face of the drywall patch as the tape), while most have a step here to place a backer as described above. Once the repair is smooth and feathered, look at it from side angles to see if it looks smooth.
In addition to the patch, you need drywall patching compound to smooth out the patch and a putty knife to spread the drywall compound over the patch. Apply one or more additional coats of joint compound until the patch and drywall tape are well covered. Poor drywall repair or texture work that exists from a previous painter or drywall contractor can be repaired to almost new looking again.
Before you start worrying about the newest hole in the wall, choose to work with Performance Painting Contractors. Our house painting specialists bring this same mindset to work when they perform drywall repair or removal. Drywall tape, when applied by a skilled painting contractor, can create a clean and seamless surface that even a well-trained eye cannot readily detect.
Hold the new piece over the hole and trace around it. (Be sure to mark the top of the patch as a reference for when you install it as it’s not likely to be a perfect square.) With a drywall saw, cut along the lines that you just traced. Make sure to leave extra backing all around the patch to attach to the drywall surrounding the hole.
