July 6, 2007, Newsletter Issue #32: Fixing Cracks In Drywall

Tip of the Week

If you are dealing with a "creeping crack" problem in a section of drywall, the repair is fairly quick and simple. You'll need a sanding sponge, drywall compound, and a can of elastic crack coating. Sand and smooth the crack area with the sponge, fill in the crack with the drywall compound, and let it dry. You'll need to sand the area smooth, then apply the elastic crack coating. Make sure the area is well-ventilated before you spray. This is one of the easiest drywall repairs to do, and a very good way to get your feet wet in home improvement tasks. Once you've gotten this under your belt, you'll feel more confident tackling more complex DIY jobs.
