For anybody who have older homes with plaster walls and in getting ready to paint a room find a crack (or cracks) to mend first, here is a fantastic product that will save you a lot of time with your drywall repair. Drywall Repair Services
When We first started fixing plastsorter wall cracks, I used a pointed tool (in my case a metallic can opener) to put out the cracked area, loosen the underlying loose plaster and prepare for the repair. The drywall repair contained several applications of spackle, first to fill the gap (which could be lengthy and pretty wide) and lastly to smooth it over. It was followed by lots of sanding to smooth the work. This took a long time and a lot of work. Done carefully, this would be very durable. Although the underlying weakness may cause the crack to come back again in a few years.
But no more!
The things i have found is an item called “Krack Kote” and it is available in paint stores (I have not seen it in any of the “big box” stores, but it might be). It is a two part kit consisting of a thin fiber-glass mesh tape about 3 inches wide and a can of thick backing. This it works.
First of all, no gouging. Simply make sure the surface is smooth over the split. Sometimes I find the edges of the bust are slightly raised. Work with a taping knife to remove those edges and run it over the location to be sure it is properly flat.
Cut the record to cover the duration of the crack. In the event the crack is not straight, cut a few of pieces and try to make certain they can fit closely together.
Using a regular paint brush (I use a 2 in one because it matches well into the backing can), brush on a nice coat of the adhesive, slightly wider that the width of the tape, with the bust in the heart of your work area. Consider the tape and place it over the bust in the middle of the adhesive to help make the drywall repair. Make sure there exists mucilaginous under all the nylon uppers.
Using a taping/spackling cutting knife (a 4 inch extensive one works well) press the tape into the adhesive by running the knife over the record. This will embed the tape in the glue and force adhesive into the mesh. Be careful, pressing TOO hard with pull the tape with the knife. If you do that, return over it carefully and steady it out.
Using your paint brush, apply another coat of the glue over the tape. Apply a good coat, solid enough to hide the mesh of the record. Feather the edges of the adhesive out on the wall on either side of the video tape a couple of in .. Make sure you have sufficient adhesive to fill up all the mesh and hide the edges of the drywall repair.
You are done!
The instructions tell you that you can paint over the area in 30 minutes and if you are in a hurry, give it a try. My spouse and i love to let it dry overnight.
If you are not careful to fill in the nylon uppers, hide all the corners or the drywall repair is not correctly remove with the rest of the wall, a really light coat of spackle and minimum sanding will perform the job. But if done carefully, you do not need to do that at all.
That may be it. This is a great product that saves time and effort and lasts a great deal longer than any other repairs because it reephasizes the wall from reopening following your repair.
