Had to knock out a single tile to repair a toilet supply line/valve. Luckily there’s a stud behind the knocked out tile. What’s the best way to repair the drywall and tile for just a single tile (with pipe obstruction)? My plan is:
Chip away the rest of the damaged tile and drywall.
Drill hole in drywall patch for pipe or cut semicircles in two pieces.
Screw drywall piece(s) into single stud in center. Fill borders with joint compound. Prepare surface and affix tile later.
My principal concern is if attaching the drywall patch to a single stud will be stable enough. I can’t use mesh patch because the neighboring drywall has intact tile.
Alternatively I can knock out additional tiles to the left and the drywall patch over two studs for firmer attachment.
