Buckbox Move Out Guide:

Patching Damaged Walls

Damaged walls happen to each and everyone of us -- the only question is how bad are they?

Buckbox Wall Hole

Don't worry! From little nail holes to that gash in the wall from that rager, your Buckbox will fix them all.

We'll walk you through the whole process below, so lets get going!


In your Buckbox, we’ve included everything you need to fix up those holes and get your walls looking good as new. This may seem like a big challenge, but don’t worry, with Buck it’s a cinch.

With the materials and tools included, you’ll be able to patch up everything from tiny nail and screw holes to something a bit bigger that may have come to pass -- during that night you don’t talk about.

 

A couple of quick painting tips:

We screwed the touch-up paint cap on nice and tight to make sure it didn't leak on it's way to you, so make sure you give it a couple of taps on the corner of any hard surface (like the edge of a table) to loosen it up so it opens easy.

Also, make sure to wipe off the paint brush on the rim of the canister so that it doesn't drip while you're doing your thing.

 

Smaller Holes

  1. Start by using your finger to clear up whatever remnants or detritus may be around the hole. If there are any uneven bits, make sure to remove those too. If you need, you can totally use the putty knife to help you out here.

  2. Once that’s done, use your putty knife to scoop up a little bit of the spackling paste and use it to fill the hole.

  3. Now, use the putty knife to scrape the hole clean, so that the spackling paste is flush with the wall.

  4. Once the hole is all good and filled, you just have to wait for about a half hour until it dries.

  5. When the spackling is finished drying, take the sandpaper, and go over the hole once or twice, again making sure that it’s all flush against the wall.

  6. If you’d like, you can go over the hole with the touch-up paint to finish up the job.

Bigger Holes

Crazy nights happen--I get it--and sometimes, they leave a mark. If that’s happened to you, don’t worry: Buck has got you covered.

  1. We’re gonna start off by cleaning up the hole. If there are any hanging bits or paint falling off, now’s your time to take care of them. Once that’s done, give the area a quick going-over with the sandpaper, just to make sure it’s all ready to go.

  2. Then, just remove the backing, and stick the patch over that hole.

  3. Now, take your putty knife, and scoop up some of the spackling paste. Use the paste to fill the hole.

  4. Then use the putty knife to scrape the hole clean, so that the spackling paste is totally flush with the wall

  5. Once the hole is all good and filled, we just have to wait for about a half hour until dries.

  6. When the spackling is finished drying, take the sandpaper, and go over the hole once or twice, again making sure that it’s all flush against the wall.

  7. If you want to paint over the patched hole, you can go over it with the touch-up paint in your Buckbox.

 


Once that's all done, let's move on to the next fix your space needs.
