How to Repair Drywall

Aug 7th 2010 5:37PM What a crock, what you may not have noticed is that you now have these big ugly lunps after the spackle dries that can be seen from across the room since you have now built up the damaged area almost 1/8 of an inch higher than the rest of the wall. You can see this on this video as the wet paint shows how deformed the wall is after his method.
If you are going to use these mesh patches you must first score around the area where the mesh patch will be placed and remove the drywall paper backer to lower the area so when you put the patch in it is lower than the wall. Now add spackle and sand so the patch is the same thickness as the rest of the wall.
This mesh is the same as drywall seam reenforcing tape and is used to seam two sheets together, however if you have ever worked with drywall you will know that the 8 foot edges have a groove almost 1/8 thinner than the rest of the board to allow for the use of drywall tape and spackle without creating ridges. So when done the fill should appear seamless.

By the way this mesh is not necessary on the last patch, the spackle won't crack if your gaps from the wall to the patch drywall board are less than 1/4 inch.
Good luck everyone.

How to land a job, even with bad credit

Aug 13th 2009 10:39PM Hi Bishop,
I am here to tell you, anyone that judges a person only on a paper that a machine generated is a fool. I know many true scum bags that look stellar on paper, for example the one accountant friend who was arrested for the third time for embezzlement, seems he keeps getting jobs like:
bank president, corporate controller and CFO running several charity's since each time he gets busted the employer chooses to drop all charges as to not suffer the public embarrassment and make the papers.
I can also tell you it is a shame that businesses now a days are just too lazy to take the time to meet individuals and actually use a humans senses to decide if a person may be honest.
I assure you a credit report proves nothing about a persons character, honesty or dedication. It only proves that they may or may not have the ability to pay their bills. And I do not know if you have been paying attention but the country is in real trouble and an enormous amount of people are in serious financial trouble, also currently it would appear that the biggest thieves seem to have perfect credit ratings, after all stealing, cheating, swindling and lying is very profitable just read about the banking industry...
I had a business for 14 years and used all of my senses to decide if a person had what it takes, did they show up on time, were they dressed proper, were they respectful, were they calm, did they smell, did they swear, could they look me in the eye, were they organized, I asked questions to decide if they were intelligent or if they had been to prison you know the stuff that is really important.
