It’s frustrating to walk into a unit that’s scheduled for turn and see wall damage. Now you know you have to repair that damage but how do you repair holes on a smooth wall without the patch standing out like a sore thumb? How do you repair a few scratches on a textured wall without the newly applied texture looking like it was slathered on with a putty knife?
Getting The Project Started
How do you repair a few scratches on a textured wall without the newly applied texture looking like it was slathered on with a putty knife? By utilizing the products and services available through your PPG Paints store, we will show you how to repair holes in drywall, smooth or textured. What's more, we will help you take that wall repair to the next level of professionalism so potential residents won’t even be able to tell that there had been any holes to begin with.
Transform Drywall Repairs
Let’s start with some standard, simple wall repairs that you see all the time: small holes and scratches on smooth and textured walls. Now, your typical drywall compound can be pretty difficult to apply even in small patches. All too often, these drywall compounds have a tendency to break down during the sanding process which can cause unwanted small holes to appear in the final steps. In the case of overfilling the hole, you can still run into trouble as the drywall compound is likely to bulge out. This is not only unsightly, but it makes the sanding job more difficult than it needs to be. This is where PPG Paints can help transform the way you do drywall repairs.
Patching The Hole & Applying Texture
For smooth wall repair, you need to simply apply a generous amount of your preferred PPG Paints patching compound to the hole. You will notice that as the product dries, it will change in color from pink to white. This color change indicates that the product is dry and ready to be properly sanded. This easy sand formula takes the guesswork out of the equation entirely, leaving behind a finished product that looks like new with its smooth, unblemished appearance. For textured walls, you need only to apply a coat of Homemax Orange Peel Texture Patch. This product’s canister comes with an adjustable nozzle that will give you more control over the amount of texture applied to the wall. This makes it easy to match the repair patch to the existing wall’s texture by simply adjusting the spray.
The difference between using the old, conventional drywall repair methods and those offered at PPG Paints is like night and day. The results are in the finished product and your clients will definitely be able to tell the difference. With this, you now have at your disposal new knowledge on how to repair holes in drywall.
