 No matter how many precautions we take, accidents will always happen. That is a fact. The bad thing is having to deal with the consequences! For example, you can be walking around your home, trip, and end up with an unsightly hole on your wall.

If this, or something similar, has happened to you and you want to restore your wall to its original glory, Thistle DKI in Las Vegas will tell you how to do it here!

How to Patch Drywall


Roundup the Materials

  • PaintPaintbrush
  • A big enough repair patch
  • Trowel
  • Drywall compound
  • Sandpaper

Get it Ready


It’s time to get ready! First, you need to cover any furniture, clothing or floor that can be ruined by the materials used in the repair.

Then, clean the affected area in the wall and get it ready to work on! Smoothen the surface and remove any pieces that may be falling off or sticking out.

Repair and Patch


Now for the actual fix! Take the repair patch and stick it directly over the affected area, making sure to cover it completely.
Then, take the trowel and drywall compound and cover the patch entirely. Try to make the surface as even as possible while you’re at it! 

Finishing Touches


You’re almost done! After the compound is completely dry, all you have to do is take the sandpaper and rub it against it to make the area smoother.
Lastly, take paint in the hue the wall is in and a paintbrush, and go over the patch. This way, it’ll all look like one piece again, as if nothing happened.
