Patch Job


Forgot. I meant to bring a sheet with me. Executive decision time.
Made due with the cut outs from plumber.

Re: Patch Job


Oil primer for bonding/setting. A must when using quickset. 4-5 coats of 5 minute mud. Skim/float coat of bucket mud. Time 8:00-2:00. Could have finished but had to get to another job to complete and get paid.
Returned next morning with vacuum sander......5 minutes....clean up. Get check.

Re: Patch Job


No matter how many times I tell my plumber not to, he still cuts at the wall to ceiling seam. Drives me nuts.

I would like to do those repairs every day of the week

Too bad you fixed it, it could have been marketed as a Modern Art masterpiece.

Re: Patch Job


Wouldn't have been easier to cut it all out and then use two boards? That way you could picture frame around that opening, lessening future corner cracks.
Or, you could have been artistically inspired.

Re: Patch Job


I'm just impressed that the plumber made some decently straight cuts compared to what I usually come behind to patch.

I should take that picture to my plumber and ask why can't he make holes like that

Re: Patch Job


Does a plumber even know what a straight line is?

Sure he does. It's that curved framing he puts his perfect piping next to.

Drywall supplier. That’s National Gypsum brand. Lowe’s carries it here in some stores.

Re: Patch Job


I meant to bring an 8 footer and forgot. Weighed the situation, could have cut from base to counter and eliminated those seams but the time wasted was a washout.

And yes, I work with that plumbing company a lot. Perfect lines. I refer them a lot too.
