Drywall Repair: How to Fix a Hole in the Wall



hi I'm Lisa Bernbach for howdini dot-com you know that hole in your wall that's driving you crazy every time you walk past it well EDL grande is here to tell us how to fix it he's the author of house-call how are you I'm doing great with me Suzy I may be good but your wall is not good a lot of people ask me and when do you know it's time to use a patch instead of just spackling a smaller hole I would just self a house for that no well here's the wasted with the rule of thumb i matter of fact we're gonna use a finger so it's close to a thumb when you stick your finger in a hole that's big enough to qualify for a patch so we're gonna patch this for you right now okay what are patches made out well first you could buy this kit from the $10 it makes it very easy see it comes with the spackle you also have your putty knife and then you do have the patches included so I would get one of these kits keep it around the host you can use it over and over okay and so in that one kit you have everything you need everything you need matter of fact I opened up another kid already and here's the main thing you need right here is the patch which is made out of white it's a mesh and that will actually hold a speckle in place and plus feel that see how it's tacky that elastic right to the wall for you but before you stick it on the wall you got to prepare the wall that's the pro trick get a knife you could get a razor knife or sharp knife and just get all the loose stuff out of there now the patch has something to stick to it was enough yeah that was enough remember this is tacky you just want to cover that hole and use that hole for a bull's-eye put it right in the middle and see how it's looking better already and then just yeah good you see you learnin already and just stuck that up there nice and tight now Edie you don't have to trim the patch no because remember we're gonna go over that with a spackle and if you really want to stick it down there's another Pro trick you could just use the putty knife itself to get it good and tight to that okay now here's the magic spackle this is my favorite spackle you can see it's pink radioactive really well no not really reactive but that pink is a very important color you know why why when it's wet it's pink when it's white it means it's dry and you could say little s you could see what you're doing to the wall now watch this we just got a nice glop of it right here stop where the hole is and you're gonna feather it out now see what I'm doing here drop the oil use some drop cloths on the floor and this will really get into all that mesh screens see I'm working in in uh-huh could take some practice before you actually go to the the wall that you're fixing so this is important you've done this a million times and you are biologically a man what but what about you right but for people like me who've never done this is it is it gonna be this easy yes it should be this easy maybe not as quick that's the only difference between a pro and an amateur the pros are just a little quicker so ed we just went to the movies we're back the thing is white and dry well now you're ready for sanding and then once you sand it wipe it down with a tech look and then you could paint it but remember Lisa the paint has to match the walls for that hole to really disappear right okay but you really think I can do this – absolutely and the hole is gone it's gone for good okay thanks so much ed you're welcome for howdini dot-com I'm Lisa Bernbach you

    Wow, thanks so much for teaching women that, despite not being biologically male, they too can patch a hole in a wall.

    So I did no big deal is it. My brother can do it too. But I took a class on how to. Some said diy although my boyfriends never expected me to so if I ask them and they can then they do.
