Learn to Patch Walls Like A Pro

One of the most common household upgrades is painting interior walls. It’s a fast and dramatic way to make improvements to your home. But the often-overlooked secret to a great paint job is drywall repair. While drywall is a pretty good interior wall surface, cracks, gouges and screw pops are common flaws that need to be fixed before the paint cans get opened.

This is where my “Patching Walls Like a Pro” course comes in.

You’ll learn exactly how to achieve professional-grade wall prep and painting masking results, even if you’ve never done it before. After taking the course you’ll know how to:

  • Choose the essential tools and supplies for assembling your own wall patching kit
  • Patch those pesky and annoying nail and screw holes in three quick steps
  • Fix drywall screw pops at least as well as any professional drywaller
  • Understand the difference between drywall compound, wall spackle and setting-type wall compounds
  • Patch holes as big around as a walnut using nothing more than two hand tools, setting-type compound, spackle and a sanding sponge
  • Repair damaged areas larger than a walnut using strips of wood as backing supports.
  • Apply critical fine-tuning steps to patched areas before repainting
  • Choose proper masking tape for different applications
  • Apply special painters tapes like this so you get super-crisp painted results just like a pro
  • Use painter’s tape while caulking to virtually guarantee perfectly crisp results around bathtubs, windows, doors and anywhere else.
