Repairing Wall Damage

The first step for wall damage repairs is to ensure that you know your plan of action. There are two ways this can go. You can either aim to get the entire wall retouched, so that you cannot even tell there was a damaged area. Or you can focus on fixing up the area that was damaged, and leaving it at that. If you are doing this on your own, you will opt for the latter. But if you request professional services, the company will ensure that the entire wall looks as it did before the damage occurred.

You will need tools such as a drill, drywall saw and a utility knife. And you will need construction adhesive, drywall tape and masking tape. Depending on the wall and the type of damage that was done, you may need some additional tools and materials. The key part of the process is to ensure that you are covering up any dents or dings that are in your wall. If there is a small or moderately sized hole, you will probably want to fill it with spackle. Using spackle is easy, and the job gets done within a day. Give the spackle a day to dry, and then you can continue.

Now you will want to finish that part of the wall as best you can, because you want it to be even with everything else. The finishing part can take a bit of time, because you will want to get it right. Sometimes you may start to finish some of the surrounding areas, so the area where the hole was made is not so prominent. If you are not planning to sell your home anytime soon, you can get away with this much work. But if you care a lot about how the wall looks, you may want to call a pro.
