Mrs D. wanted to repair a garage bedroom. She wanted the bedroom wall fixed, new baseboards to replace the missing ones, new ceiling and walls painted and she needed this job done as fast as possible. Her new tenet would arrive in three days.

This post shoes the five steps to repairing the wall damage from the moving of the coaxial cable to the top of the drier duct vent.

Step 1: Fig.1 shows the Westpac Materials All Purpose Joint Compound that will be used to repair all the damages in this bedroom/office.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the wall has been cut, the coaxial cable is on top of the A/C vent and now needs to be filled with joint compound.
