Why do patch kits leave off halfway through the project? If you are handy enough to keep paintbrushes around you probably have spackle and a putty knife in your painting supplies. The spackle is likely to be dried out by now, so that’s a trip to the store.
For those other thousands of people who don’t keep hardware supplies around are the same people who end up with a damaged wall and have no solution to repair it except load up on supplies, and do-it-yourself.
The following list represents what other professional recommend for repairing a damaged wall. Drywall compound, something to spread it on the walls like a putty knife, sand paper, paint brush, or roller and pan, primer, paint, utility knife, hammer.
Most patch kits offer the first half and then you are on your own in the paint aisle of Lowe’s or Home Depot.
