Quick Product Review (Drywall Patch)

Today I want to do a quick product review for Wal-Board Tools ™ “Drywall Patches”. I am not affiliated to this product or its company. This is just an independent review based upon personal use and the fact that I am very impressed by how much time you can save and by how well this patch actually performs.  This is great for any professional or DIY’er because it’s as simple as peal & stick.

Step 1: Once you peel the paper off the patch just place it on the wall covering your damaged area. It is self adhering and will stick right to your drywall.

Pro tip: Clean all debris and loose parts of the damaged are with a utility knife before placing your patch. This will ensure your patch will stay flush on your wall and avoid bumps.17967995_1344377625630499_2010138988_o

Step 2: Apply a thin coat of joint compound and let it dry. Just enough to cover the patch and 2″ -4″ surrounding the patch.

Step 3: Repeat step 2 as many times until you the patch is covered completely. Sand lightly with a fine sanding sponge then prime and paint. It’s that simple!

Removing Wallpaper

Removing old Wallpaper can be a real hassle and it is always difficult to estimate a job that includes removing Wallpaper. You never know exactly how long it will take and what obstacles you will run into. Different factors can slow down the process such as what kind of glue was used and whether the wallpaper was applied on previous wallpaper, painted walls or directly on drywall. In most cases I found that the wallpaper will be applied directly to your drywall which means that you most likely will need do some  spackling after removing your wallpaper. It can be very costly if you hire a contractor to do the job and you will most likely end up paying them by the hour to remove the Wallpaper.

There are many products  you can find at Home Depot™ ,Lowe’s™ and Wall-Mart™ for instance that will help you soften up the adhesives specially when you are doing commercial projects  but If you are doing a residential home then I suggest using warm water and dish soap.That seems to do the trick for me. I start by really soaking  the walls with warm water and soap and let it sit for 20 minutes. Then I will go back and repeat that process before I start peeling. I try  soak 2 sections at a time once I start peeling. The wetter the paper stays the easier it is to peel.  

You can see where I started soaking the paper below

Once everything is removed I do a skim coat with a light weight spackling compound.

  Once the compound is dry I proceed to light sand, prime and paint the walls.
