2. Install a backer-board
3. Cut a new piece of drywall
4. Tape all the joints

    Thanks for great project you have shared with us.Water damage and stains on drywall are usually the result ofa leaky roof or plumbing fixture. Water damage will cause a stain to appear on the drywall. This is usually the first sign of a problem.

    I like to cut the square plug first and then trace it over the hole.
