Fixing small drywall homes

If you are a homeowner you probably know how common is to accidentally make dents or holes in the walls. Either you are moving furniture or you party too hard, it can happen to anyone. If you ask a contractor about fixing a large hole in drywall for you, then you are looking at a few hundred dollars in labor, not to speak about the cost of the materials.

In this article, I will show you an easier method that you can do by yourself while keeping the money in your pocket. In addition, the few tools you need for the job are an investment, as you can use them anytime an issue occurs to the walls.

Tools for drywall repair

In order to fix holes in drywall as a professional, you need a few drywall repair tools. These tools will not only help you save money, but they will also fix the holes in the wall as they did not exist in the first place.

First on your list should be a cutter or an utility knife. You need the cutter to clean the holes and to give them a more common shape.

Then, you need putty knifes of various sizes. If you had to buy only one, then I recommend you to choose the 6" wide one. It is an excellent compromise and it should help you to fix almost any size of holes.

Last but not least, you need a good sander so you can smooth the putty before painting the wall. You need to use several grits of sandpaper so that you smooth the patched surface until it gets super fine. With these tools in your bag, you will be the carefree homeowner, as you can really repair any hole in the wall that might accidentally appear.
