Mudding Drywall Repairs
Mudding is used in drywall repairs too. There are four main categories of repairs that require the use of mud to properly fix them. They are:
- Pings and dents can generally be repaired just by administering mud onto the surface.
- Small holes, like those running 2-3 inches, are typically repaired by applying mud over a mesh patch. Several coats of mud are usually needed.
- Medium holes of around 6 inches or more call for drywall to be used in order to fill in the space. The repair generally takes 2-3 coats of mud.
- Large holes are repaired with drywall that is attached to the existing drywall with screws and joint tape. The work is then covered by several coats of mud.
