Fixing Wall Corner Water Damage
Hopefully the piccie shows what's going on. Apparently there was some sort of 'flood' in my house during the previous owner's tenure. I didn't realise it until I yanked the carpeting last year. And finally, a while back, the corners around this closet just dissolved.
I have a triple challenge: I am a total sheet rock 'noob'... and I'm partially disabled (I get tired)... and I'm on a fixed income. So I'm looking for a (hopefully) relatively easy/cheap DIY fix if possible. If it's something that requires a pro, just let me know.
I -guess- one cuts out the old sheet rock on both sides of the corner and then replaces. Correct? But how much does one cut out? Do you have to cut out large enough pieces on both sides to be able to nail onto studs on each side or can one just patch and tape somehow?
If this is too much for a question like this but maybe there are pre-made videos or books that demonstrate this is child-simple directions?
(And after this, I guess I'll have to tackle the floor stains!)
