Repair the dry-wall

Tuesday, September 06, 2011

This morining one the local drywall repair/installer stopped by our house. We had called him earlier to fix a broken drywall at our place and he had scheduled the visit this morning. He surveyed the damages and told one needs simple patch work and other needs a replacement drywall piece.

We asked him to begin his work. He then proceeded to cut out a bigger rectangular area on the room where the damage was big. He then placed a rectangular new drywall smoothed out the corners and put on a gauze-type tape over it. For the second room he simply used the gauze-type tape all over the damaged area. Then he put on quick dry white cement on the top of both the areas and allowed to dry for about 15 minutes.

After it had dried he mixed some material that was white and resembled the dry masonary on our walls. He generously applied that white cover coat and used the mason’s trowel to smooth the area to match rest of the wall surface.

The job was completed about 1 1/2 hour and we were happy with the finished job. We paid him with a personal check.
