Fix the hole in the wall for 5 minutes

I’m glad you were able to school that 50-year old Mason on this basic and very well known method of sheet rock repair. Hopefully, you also showed him another trick of the trade where you put paint over it to make it look like the rest of the wall. I love these little secret tips. […]

I’m glad you were able to school that 50-year old Mason on this basic and very well known method of sheet rock repair.

Hopefully, you also showed him another trick of the trade where you put paint over it to make it look like the rest of the wall. I love these little secret tips.

For small holes like this I use a coffee can to draw a circle around the hole, then use the coffee can as a template to draw a circle on the new piece of sheetrock.

Use the keyhole saw to cut out the hole on the wall and the new piece where I position the coffee can on the corner of the new piece where I have two flat sides to start the cuts.

The repair is the same as shown but with a circle not a square.i am kind of amazed how they made the most simple drywall repair this complicated, can do this in three steps but turned it into 10, and when do masons do drywall lmaoo, as a carpenter this is just part of the job.

I honestly appreciate this post. I’ve got a few door knob damage push-thru jobs I’ve been delaying for too long.

This repair will be nice and strong, I just know it.Running the framing all the way around the hole instead of just the strip in the middle makes a stronger, less likely to crack fix.

You can also use metal stud and save having to get out a saw because it cuts with tin snips. Finally, it’s much easier to work with hot mix than 100% plaster.

Just sprinkle a healthy amount of plaster into a pile of joint compound in a hawk and mix it in – extends the workable time of the paste, dries just as hard, and sands much easier.
