Sometimes Accidents Happen
Accidents happen to everyone. Fortunately, drywall is relatively simple to install and relatively easy to repair. It’s also easy to repair badly, which can leave a lumpy mess that sticks out like a DIY patch to anyone who enters the room. To repair a problem such as the picture above, the sheetrock will need to be cut back to the ceiling joists, so that solid nailing or screwing can be found. A new piece of drywall will need to be installed, the joints need to be fiberglass mesh taped, prefilled with quick set drywall compound, and two to three thin coats of joint compound will get the area ready to sand and texture. Depending on the type of texture, a spray hopper will have to be used. Some textures are stippled, rolled, sponged, or applied with a trowel. Matching textures requires a trained eye, experience, and quite a bit of practice. Needless to say, some consider drywall repair as an art form.
Fortunately, many drywall repairs are not so large.
Sometimes, drywall needs to be replaced due to water damage or mold issues.
