    How to repair a hole in a wall?

    Plasterers

    How do I repair a hole in a wall? It is plasterboard, one of my kids has managed to go through the wall with a door handle. It is a rented property and I am worried I will get charged. Do I need to plasterboard and plaster the whole room?

    "Cut the area into a square with a stanly knife or padsaw, cut a peace of plasterboard to fit, drew to bit of wood behind the excisting wall, then acres the plasterboard to this, then use some easy fill over the area of plasterboard and onto the excisting wall leave to dry and sand flat"

    "Get a piece of plasterboard, cut a neat square out, fit the new piece with a bit of baton behind and fill gaps with easy fill. Sand down and repaint should do it."

    "A hole created by a door handle can be filled with polyfilla
    Allow that to dry before sanding down. it can then be painted over. Painting the entire door would produce a better and a more complete job."

    "For a simple handle repair job, I’d advise you to cut a Square out of damaged plasterboard. Once exposed get 4 bits of wood and fix them inside of the square. Only fix half of the wood leave the other half for the new bit of plasterboard to be fix too.

    Scrim the joints with scrim tape and plaster over with muiltifinish plaster. Once dry, paint. Good as new."

    "No just cut a neat square hole and put a bit of timber in then plasterboard into that then fill it. Then put door stops on the skirting boards."
