1 2 How To Patch Screw Holes In Drywall Step 1: Prepare the Face Paper Step 2: Butter Your Drywall Knife Step 5: Sand Rough Spots Down Conclusion Despite the inconvenience, even a complete beginner may easily patch these holes.

More information is provided below.

There are numerous varieties of drywall mud available. However, a tiny pale of pre-mixed joint compound is your best bet if you simply need to patch one or two screw holes.

Instead of covering bigger screw holes, use spackle to conceal extremely small nail holes. Similar to joint compound but lighter and excellent for small holes is spackle.

What you’ll need to repair drywall screw holes is listed below:

PATCH SCREW HOLES IN DRYWALL: DIRECTIONS Prepare the face paper in step one. Trim the face paper if tapping the holes doesn’t result in a clean result.

BUTTER YOUR DRYWALL KNIFE IN STEP 2 Keep your knife from getting too much muck on it. A huge mess will result from this.

Now turn the mud-covered knife toward the wall. Fill the hole with joint compound by running the knife over it. (Repeat this step if the area contains divots.)

After applying the initial coat, give the joint compound time to completely dry. This typically takes 1-2 hours for small screw holes, but you can check the joint compound bottle for an exact drying time.

The joint compound shrinks and occasionally breaks as it dries. You will therefore need to add a second coat to the screw holes.

SAND ROUGH SPOTS DOWN CONCLUSION, STEP 5 To make the process as simple as possible, use an all-purpose joint compound that has been pre-mixed. A wall that is smooth and hole-free will be achieved with two coats of compound and light sanding.
