Default Re: patching drywall?

Unless the wall looks like it was hit with a machine gun I would not start ripping down sheets, I would repair each hole individually! The above method is very quick and extremely accurate! You should NOT see where the patch repair work was done regardless of the lighting angle!

As far as your wood backing strips goes, anything goes as long as it is long enough and straight! With some of the smaller holes a single 2 x 4 on the flat can be used.

Remember a hole is a hole regardless of what size it is!
