    I like this guys, most of the time they are right but this time I’ll cut
    off the old one, and install a new drywall (looks like a 24×24 inches) and
    it should be a 5/8 drywall for the sealing

    I wish they would at least address why they don’t recommend just cutting
    out the old and replacing. This is the only time I’ve questioned if I’d
    choose a different option than Tom.

    That was a very good video. A repair that I have unfortunately had to do
    before. Nice to see from the pros that I did it correctly. Just wish it had
    I included (for my needs) popcorn ceiling application over the repair.

    Lesson learned… invest in plywood for a floor in the attic instead of
    buying plywood for repairing a ceiling. Cheaper in the long run when you
    figure materials and labor.
