How to Seal Small Holes in Drywall

4997-101413-gs4997Drywall holes can be as small as a tiny picture nail or can require a massive repair. However, sealing small holes in your drywall is one of the easiest home repair tasks to complete. Below is a step by step guide that will make the repair easy:




You will need sandpaper, spackle, and a putty knife.


Steps to Repair:

  • Sandpaper all around the edges of the hole to remove raised edges around the hole and roughen the paint
  • Use a putty knife to apply spackle to fill the hole
  • After spackle dries it may shrink, so another layer may be necessary
  • Sand the area smooth after the spackle dries
  • Prime the area for painting

Finally, paint over the patched area. And if the area to be patched is too big to be filled with spackle, you may need an additional piece of drywall to patch the hole. And it may be necessary to hire a professional to repair your wall. This is often the best choice if the hole is a larger size and you want to make sure you won’t have issues with the repaired area in the future.
