  1. Do u have a death wish? No mask sanding sheetrock? Crazy!

  2. Last summer I had a softball teammate fix two damaged areas of my ceilings, after he had repaired 5 incorrectly-installed roof flashings, which had caused the internal leakage. I sure learned a lot about roofs and ceilings. His ceiling repair was quite similar to what you did. Note that the home was just 2 years old when we purchased it in 2004, so I think we skipped the inspection. Anyway, fixed now, and the faucets to the washing machine were reversed, so I just swapped the handles there. Oh well: just shows one never to blindly "assume" competence.

  3. Everybody can repair a dry water damaged ceiling.The challenging part is how to stop water dripping from the ceiling hole, especially when the resident is living in a condominium.

  4. Yeah I can’t put up mesh tape unless I have my handy dandy official mesh tape tool belt either

  5. How much does this approximately cost?

  6. I like your work. You are very thorough and clear. The job looks awesome. Thank you for showing us this video.

  7. Next time, wear gloves, safety glasses an possibly even a suit. There's more than likely mold. Spores will be on your body then traveled through the home after you break down containment. Shoe covers for drywall tracks.

  8. No respirator?

    Great video though

  9. You are my freaking hero! I learn so much watching your videos. Thanks man!!!

  10. crazy how you have to buy an entire sheet just for a little piece

  11. Ok: what tools do I need and materials ?

  12. You’re a goat. That texture came out perfect too. Love learning from you. Keep up the good work brotha ! 👌🏽

  13. When you demonstrate your skill.You need to explain how you do it and what materials you use and whether u sand paper or use the sponge etc.
    But so far so good.

  14. How many days does this take to complete ??

  15. What are those poles called you made your temporary wall out of

  16. Good afternoon…where can I find those stands u used

  17. Before you'd fix that?, Where you'd find the leak?; Is that through the rain water leak or pipe?…
