Wall Repair That Works

If you have wall texture that needs repair, check out Zinsser’s four aerosol textures: “light” and “heavy” knockdown textures and “fine” and “medium” orange peel. Each type costs less than $10 per can, and covers 30 to 110 sq. ft. (Homax Products also makes knockdown texture sprays, but we haven’t tried them yet.)

Testing is everything with this stuff—set up a half sheet of drywall or a piece of cardboard and experiment with the spraying distance to get the best match with your wall.

The spray has a strong odor, so only use it when you can open the windows and vacate the room for a while. It’s incredibly messy—use lots of painter’s plastic on surrounding floors and ceilings. And be sure to shake the can every few seconds of spraying or the nozzle will plug.
