Fix the holes in your wall of the door knobs – house repair


Fixing holes in your wall can be a challenge if you have no idea how to repair the wall or even how it is built.

Have you ever slammed a door because you were a little crazy about someone. Well now have you already slammed a door a little too loud and then heard a sound as if something was coming to the wall.

Well now, it would be the sound of your door knob going through the drywall or plaster. Oh shit now what am I doing. And do not try to blame this one on the kids either. Right now, you're wondering how I'm going to fix that and not let it happen again

You should have a nice round hole in the door. Try to remove the piece of drywall without it falling into the wall. After getting this piece of drywall, put it on its side for possible reinstallation. Now, take a tape measure to see if the wall is framed with 2 x 4 or 2 x 6.

If the wall is framed with 2 x 4, it will measure three and a half inches between drywall or plaster. If it's a 2 x 6 frame wall, it will measure five and a half inches between drywall or plaster.

We will use the wall 2 x 4 for our example on fixing the hole of the pommel of the door. Cut a piece of 2 x 4 about 5 inches long and taper the two ends of the 2×4 so that you will be able to slide the piece of wood into the damage hole.

When you slide the wood into the edge hole and screw the sides into the drywall. This will hold the 2 x 4 in place. Next, reinstall the piece of drywall that you removed and screw it into the drywall. Now for the secret of finishing the wall.

Go to your local home improvement store and buy a round rubber door stopper that sticks to the wall. These rubber and sometimes plastic doorstops will be about 6 inches in diameter and will work well for these holes.

You could also buy a few more to protect the walls from bad big door openers.

Keep your temper in check and you will not have to continue writing them
