Mrs. When found my advertisement on the on-line PennySaver. She lives in Diamond Bar in a beautiful home overlooking the valleys. Her husband family had just moved from Connecticut and was hoping that this home was perfect home. The first week they had a surprise pipe leak with no idea where the problem was, only that the walls were leaking water. They hired a plumber who made twenty holes in thorough their bedroom, living room and dining room. After the plumber left he stated he did not repair holes in the walls.
This post shows the seven steps to repairing holes in drywall.
Step 1: Fig.1 this picture is of an inside wall, fig.2 the hole is near an electrical outlet. Be careful of electrical wires when replacing wall board. Know where the sheet rock screws are going, if you screw into an electrical wire, the cordless drill will become useless. It will save you from getting a shock but you will have to replace your tool.
Step 3: Fig.3 shows all the holes have been squared and vacuumed of any dust and dirt particles. Notice the blue painters' tape on top of the wood baseboards, it is there to protect it against the mud and the primer used in this area.

Step 7: Fig.8 shows that the job is done, the wall has been repaired, the texture has been applied. Now Mrs. When is ready to entertain in her new home.
