HOW TO FIX  A CEILING HOLE

Step 1

Locate and Measure the Hole

Measure the depth and diameter of the existing hole to determine size of filler piece

Step 2

Cut and Attach the Scrap Wood

Cut a piece of scrap wood that is 1/2" thinner than the opening to allow for the thickness of drywall. You'll also want to cut the piece a little smaller than the opening.

Step 3

Cut and Attach the Drywall

Next, cut a piece of drywall a little smaller than the existing hole. Screw the drywall patch to the scrap wood filler piece

Step 4

Apply Drywall Compound

Fill the gaps with a coat of drywall compound. Allow the compound to dry, then sand lightly. Finish off with a second coat of compound, followed by primer and paint.
