Beside above, what is the fastest way to fix a small hole in the wall? Tiny nail and screw holes are easiest: Use a putty knife to fill them with spackling or wall joint compound. Allow the area to dry, then sand lightly. Anything larger must be covered with a bridging material for strength before patching compound can be applied. For holes between 1/2 and 11/2 in.
Correspondingly, how big of a hole can you patch in drywall?
Repairing large holes in drywall—anything over 6 or 8 inches—is different from repairing a small hole in drywall. Small holes can be patched over with drywall tape or a self-adhesive drywall patch, but large holes need a more rigid material to span over the larger opening.
How much does a sheet of drywall cost?
The cost to install drywall is about $1.50 per square foot. After material and labor are added in, the cost per panel can range from around $40.00 to $60.00. A typical 12x12 room, for example, will use 12 panels. This would put the cost at $480.00-$720.00.
