How To repair ceiling or wall cracks in Drywall without Humps in the plaster.
A Crack above a door?
Very typical. This normally happens when doors are slammed. Don't worry, everybody does this! Well, almost everybody.:-)
A Doorknob hole? Or worse - A BIG Hole! I'll show you how to make the Drywall Repair just up to the original surface.
No Tape Humps in the middle of the wall!
Don't fill that hole with Drywall! And don't use one of those Surface Patch Kits!
Those kits cause other problems like Raised Humps in the wall. They are a bad patch, not a Repair.

I'll show you how I would cut the loose tape out and repair the Tapeline.
What about the area around The Switches and Outlets?
Check under the Outlet and Switch cover plates. Do you have any broken or missing plaster? If so, this is not only dangerous, it cost money as well. If this problem exists, there is a very simple solution.

I'll show you what plaster to get and how I would mix it. Premixed patching compound IS NOT what we use. That stuff is good for patching, but NOT - Repairs!
