Preparing the wall for painting is essential. This will require patching. Sometimes, however, it is more than a little spackling or a knife. To get great results, we always use more than that.
We use self-priming filler.
Before painting, we prime patched areas made from traditional patching materials with a sealing primer. Foggy patches could result from patching areas not primed with a sealing-type primer. We always avoid this step by use of a self-priming adhesive. There are many brands to choose from. We look for the label that says ‘self-priming or with primer.’
Setup compound for big holes
While it is acceptable to repair small holes in walls with a patching compound, it is best to use a joint material that reacts chemically for more extensive repairs and deeper holes. These compounds come in powder form and can be set up in five to 90 minutes. We mix the water, and the reaction begins. The combination will harden within the time specified.
We always purchase the powder in a 5-lb. package. The compound sets quickly, and we apply it immediately. Setting-type combinations can be more difficult to sand than regular patches, so we strike them flush with the surface before filling the hole. Setting-type varieties are available wherever we can buy drywall tape.
Patching compound: Make a dent
A small ridge of old paint, drywall anchor, or picture hanger is often left after removing a nail or drywall anchor. This cannot be easy to cover with patching material. We make a small dent in the hole and fill it with drywall. The handle of most good quality putty knives has a rounded, rigid plastic or brass end that is perfect for creating a dent.
We also use the handle of a utility or screwdriver to make a dent. We then press the handle against the hole, twist it slightly, and then use pressure to damage the surface. We can also use our denting tool as a hammer if we aim well.
We Repair Spray to Cover Cracks
Stress cracks are often found around door and window openings. Framing movement causes crashes that are difficult to repair permanently. The spray-on crack repair can be a great way to extend the life of your drywall repairs. Spray-on crack repair forms a flexible membrane that can stretch and relax as the building changes.
We fill any cracks that are open with the patching compound. We also follow the directions on the can to apply crack-repair spray. To complete the repair, we allow it to dry and then cover it with paint. Crack-repair spray can be purchased at hardware stores, paint shops, or online.
One swipe can fill a row of holes.
Instead of filling each screw hole individually, we fill rows of holes with one long stripe joint compound. This method is faster and conceals the screw holes more effectively, making it easier to sand. Instead of rubbing around every hole, we file the entire stripe.
This tip can be used when filling in lines or close to them, such as holes left from a shelf standard.
We position a brightly lit lamp, so the beam rakes along the walls when we paint them. This will highlight imperfections, making them easier for us to fix and alert you to areas requiring more filling or additional sanding. You can be sure that your wall will look great when painted if they look smooth in the raking light. We are in town to serve you. Contact us to get the best results in your drywall repair project.
