hole in drywall

Can a hole in my interior door be repaired?

Yes, it can. If there is a hole in the door it usually is a sign that it is a hollow core door. These doors are more comment than solid wood but tend to be more fragile and prone to damage. Typically, you can get them fixed up in no more than a day or two. Here are a few tips for repairing the holes in your interior doors.

First, you will want to cut away any loose or broken wood from around the hole or crack. Then pack the hole with paper towels. This will hold the insulation form in place while it dries. Fill the hole with expanding foam insulation. You can typically find this at your local hardware stores. You should leave the insultation foam to dry overnight before you cut or sand it down. Trim away any excess form with a utility knife and then apply a layer of spackle. Wait an hour or two for it to dry and then begin to sand down the surface of the door. You are now ready to paint.
