I recently had to deal with a little water damage from a leak in the second floor bathroom. The ceiling appears to be dried out after a few days of pushing air through it and the only real water damage occured around the edge of a recessed can light fixture just like this one
The problem is that while removing that can light to get to the water the wet drywall around the hole crumbled away. Now the hole is too big for the can light. The flange around the edge of the fixture that should press against the ceiling almost fits right through.
What is the right way to go about fixing this? Cut away a larger square of drywall, replace it and re-cut the hole for the can light? Is there something easier that doesn't involve taking out more of the ceiling?
I know I could just get larger bezels and hide it but I'd rather not replace all the bezels in the room. Plus the light doesn't fit very securely any more.
