Drywall Repair

Your first instinct will most likely be to panic, but don’t. Your walls are bound to get damaged eventually, so it’s crucial to know how to fix them when a problem arises. Even the gigantic hole pictured above is fixable with a trip to the hardware store and some patience.

There are a couple of methods for fixing drywall, and it all depends on the size of the hole. For smaller ones, a simple patch job will usually suffice. You can buy kits at your local hardware store, which include most of the items you’ll need to get the job done.

Larger holes or cracks will require some more materials and a little more care, but can still be repaired without having to call in a professional — freeing you from having to sit and stare at the hole for days until the pro comes to your rescue!
