How To Patch Damaged Drywall

Why a a How-To Video

if we are painters who paint homes, why are we educating you on how to prep and paint? We thought it would be a good idea to begin doing a few "how tos" to show our potential customers how we prep, paint and fix problems on our client's homes. If you want to do it yourself, we hope you learn a few tips and tricks. We really don't have anything to hide.

The first video, below was completed by our owner, Mike Chism. He was recently visiting his grandkids in Maryland, near D.C. when he was asked to repair some damaged drywall. His marketing director and son, David, decided to shoot the video and post it on YouTube! Why Not? So that is what we did. Mike demonstrates the basic steps on how to patch damaged drywall. The problem: The kids saw a small crack and began pulling off the small layers of drywall paper, which produced a lovely 3' patch. The solution: A quick primer, sanding, filling with mud, more primer and a few coats of finish and it was good as new! The Time: The project, not including drying time, took less than 30 mins.

We hope this short video will give you the ideas to tackle the project yourself or if you get stuck, contact Chism Brothers. Our mission is to provide our customers with a one of a kind experience simply by doing the right thing. Read what our happy customers have to say.
