Fixing a deep 15" hole in wall


Postby hapless » Mon Jul 07, 2008 7:16 pm

Hey guys,

A contractor has accidentally drilled a deep hole of roughly 15 - 17 inches deep into my bedroom wall. The hole is around 1/4 of an inch wide. Can you provide any advice on the best way to fill this and whether there could be any potential problems which may arise in the future? The hole is quite close to the exterior of the house. All input would be greatly welcomed.

Thank You!

Thank You![/quote]would have made him fix the hole, his responsibility, anyway, as long as the hole didn't break through there shouldn't be a problem, simply use some Spakfilla cement and fill, can buy premixed stuff now and is easy to do, allow time to sry then sand smooth
