It's a patch - you don't need a special screwgun, you don't need ANY screwgun. Use screws - nailing drywall is an art form and takes a special hammer. Screwing is easy and takes a Phillips screwdriver. If you use a "not special drywall screwgun" stop before the screws are all the way in and use a screwdriver to finish. The head of the screw should end up ...

I'm assuming a flat wall (not textured). Use screws. Make sure they are black drywall screws. Make sure all the screw heads are below the surface of the drywall (Ideally, they should dent the drywall, but not punch through the paper.). Any driver will work, even a hand screwdriver. You don't need three trowel sizes. You can make do with the 6- or ...

Hollow panel doors like the one in your picture can be purchased at your local home improvement store for relatively cheap, probably in the range of $30-50. So the easiest thing to do is not fix them and just replace them. If you are set on repairing it, you should sand down the damage, fill it with wood putty, sand again, the prime and paint (the entire ...

That appears to be Corian (or something similar). You can find cleaning and repair guides on the DuPont website. These counter tops are not horribly heat resistant (as you found out), and can discolor or even melt it enough heat is applied. I've heard that letting baking soda sit on the stain for a while will remove some discolorations, but I've never ...

A typical way to fix this type of damage depends upon having a remnant available. Repair consists of cutting back from the door to good solid carpet material using nice straight edges. A replacement piece is cut from the remnant to fit and then joined to the original carpet using a hot melt carpet splicing tape. (Special tools are required for this process ...

Are you 100% certain that it blows when the thermostat opens the call for cooling circuit to shut it down? Or, does it run for a good while, shut down, and then you notice that the fuse is blown? If I were you, before going down that rabbit hole I would put one more fuse in it, run it for 5 minutes or less, shut it down from the tstat yourself, and see if ...
