Drywall is much like your skin in that it can develop some visible signs of age as the year’s progress.
Where you may develop lines and wrinkles, drywall can suffer cracks that if left untended can lead to some major issues. Cracks in the wall are incredibly unsightly, but the good news is that they are pretty easy to, even if you aren’t all that handy when it comes to DIY projects around the home. In just a few simple steps you can have a wall that looks as good as new again, without ever having to turn to the pros for help.
You don’t need very many supplies to complete this task, making it easy on the wallet. Some pre-mixed drywall compound, a utility knife, a putty knife, and a sander of some kind should be all that you need. Things could get a little messy during the project, so be sure to lay some plastic sheeting on the floor where you are working. You don’t want to finish one job only to start a major clean-up job because you didn’t take the time to protect your carpet or hardwood.
