Default Re: patching drywall?

What is going over this repair when its completed? If its being tiled you dont need to do a perfect job. When repairing holes I always use a piece of sheetrock the same width of the hole but about 6 inches longer. I put glue on the top 3 inches and bottom 3 inches facing me and insert it inside the wall openeing. Dont forget to run a screw or two dead center for a handle. The just run a few screws through the top above the hole and a few below. Let the glue dry. Remove the screws and just glue your patch piece over the backing piece that is now firmly glue to the back of the wall.
