drywallrepairfinishWhether you’ve spent a year or ten years in your house or apartment, you’ve undoubtedly taken some measures to make that residence your own. Over time, you may have painted the walls, hung pictures and wall art, and installed fixtures to make your location comfortable and beautiful. Unfortunately, though, many such measures can leave behind ugly, hard-to-repair scars on your walls. Whether you’ve got a few small holes from a fixture that was just too heavy or a large blemish from a DIY project gone wrong, you may need to seek help from a professional drywall repair company before you move out.

Generally speaking, very small holes in the walls, i.e. those left behind by screws and nails, are easy enough to patch up on your own. After removing the nail or screw, your first step is to flatten out the area that needs repair so you have an even surface to work with. You can gently sand down any rough edges before you dive into repairs. Once that’s finished, arm yourself with spackle and a putty knife and spread it evenly across the area–two coats should be plenty for a strong hold. Finally, sand down the spackled area so it’s flush with the wall and coat with paint, and voila! Your drywall holes have been easily repaired.

However, large holes and damaged areas can’t be fixed with a simple coat or two of spackle. While some homeowners and renters choose to go the DIY route, it’s best to leave large wall repairs to the professionals. There may be electrical wiring or plumbing behind the area that needs repair, and it can be extremely difficult to create a flat, evenly positioned surface if you don’t have professional experience. In the long run, trying to repair your drywall holes on your own can leave you with more damage than you started with.
