It turned out that the central AC drain line was backed up. Luckily, the parental units had purchased an extended warranty on the system. They had purchased this system from Sears in 2004 and continued to renew the warranty each year. Each renewal also includes an annual service so it nearly pays for itself. Not to mention that in the heat of August here in Florida, the whole system went down and they ended up replacing the motor (a $700 fix) at no additional cost thanks to the warranty. Anyway, my point is that warranties for expensive things are nice to have. The warranty completely covered the drain line fix and the ceiling drywall repair (about $900 fix). …happy dance.
Use a drywall or putty knife to apply spackle or joint compound (mud”) directly to small blemishes or to apply mud over mesh tape. Apply several thin layers (with drying time allowed between layers) rather than a single, thick coat over deep voids and taped areas. Applying thick layers or subsequent coats too early can result in shrinking and cracking. For hairline scratches, caulk or spackle can be applied directly to the area with a putty knife, caulking gun, or even your finger.
Below this image is the final stage of repair. I applied spray texture, using a spray texture hopper gun, attached to a air compressor too force compound through the hopper, it has a texture dial for 7 different spray patterns. This is a Marshalltown sharpshooter sprayer,I used the smallest setting to apply a fine texture to perfectly match the exsisting wall texture.
Smooth the compound with the putty knife. Pull the blade toward you in one steady, smooth motion, letting the knife make a 30-degree angle with the wall. If your finish doesn’t look smooth, simply wipe off the blade, wet it and scrape the wall again. Make the mud as smooth as you can, but don’t worry if it’s not perfect. You will be able to sand the compound later when it’s dry (although this can create a bit of a mess, so it’s best to leave it as smooth as possible before it dries).
