How to Repair a hole Using Your Stanley FatMax Jabsaw
Getting a hole in your sheetrock is going to be inevitable; how you repair it is another story. No matter what size hole you get it your drywall, the key to making a seemless repair, is to always cut the damaged area out.
- First, cut a piece of drywall to a size just slightly larger than the damaged area. Use this as a template to trace on the wall itself.
- Second, following the pencil mark you just drew on the wall, cut out the damaged wall section using your FatMax drywall saw.
- Third, cut two furring strips about 5-6 inches wider than the hole and secure them to the outside edges of the whole using screws. The furring strips are used to attach the sheetrock patch in place.
- Attached the drywall, making sure you do not leave any large gaps around the edges as that will require addition time and effort to tape and compound.
- Apply tape along the seams between the drywall patch and the wall and cover the tape with joint compound.
