Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Robert Excited to try, disappointed to use
Excited to try this product. Applied and waited for pink to change to white. Cool to see that. Then waited two more days before painting. When painting over the patches, they began peeling off. Very disappointed by the results. Went to hardware store to complain. They said I should have used a primer before painting, yet nowhere on the product instructions does it recommend using primer first. Messed up my paint job. Not looking forward to spending another weekend re-doing what I just did.

This was recommended by a friend to fill nail holes in my new baseboard. It worked great for that. I have always used DAP products in the past and have always had great results. This time I used it on a new buffet cabinet I was building. Used to it fill nail holes from attaching the face frame and to fill a small gap from trimming out the top. I used it on solid hard maple. Dried super quick, sanded down no problem. I primed and painted the entire cabinet and it turned out great.

This spackle is great. I've been repainting a 5 bedroom house and a 32 oz tub of this stuff is plenty for this house. I've used it on bigger holes and patches, up to an inch, and it works great in layers. I love it so much. I wish it said if you could paint directly on it or if it needs primer. I've been priming it so far but I think I'm going to experiment with not priming it and see what happens.

I've used DAP Spackle products before without a problem. I applied this to quite a few areas on previously painted (latex) drywall and there was a 3 day dry time before I painted (latex). The paint would not stick to any of the areas with the spackle and literally peeled off as a rolled paint over it. I ended up having to use a putty knife to scrape off the paint and spackle. This was a complete waste of my time. Now I need to go and purchase a different brand and redo the work.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Raymond This product is not for outdoors, don't waste your time
I used this product last summer, scraped and prepared my house wooden window sills and frames. By this spring, all the paint had peeled off leaving a white powdery substance. At first I was not sure it was the primer or the Dap spackling. I prepped the windows again using this product on the cracks etc yesterday. On purpose I left some out to dry in order to test how it would take moisture as rain was forecast the next day. It went to mush just like drywall compound. DO NOT USE THIS OUTSIDE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Even though the label states INTERIOR/EXTERIOR You will totally waste your time as it will need to be done again. It might work well inside, it is easy to sand, but that is it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sam This was fantastic!
I used this product for several uses. In the bathroom to repair where a towel bar was ripped out by my four year old, a hole where a door was opened too hard and the handle went through the wall, and screw holes from shelves that were removed. This product worked great for all of the purposes. I used a metal infused mesh for the larger holes and this product went on smoothly and evenly. It was definitely thick enough for the purpose, not at all runny. The only reason that I didn't give it five stars is because I could not understand by the packaging if I could paint directly on it after I applied or if I had to use primer first. After sanding and wiping down, it still has a powder grit finish so I primed it first and it worked like a charm. Also, it goes on smooth and I have a orange peel wall. I took the curved edge of a paperclip and carved orange peel markings in the product after it dried and it matched the wall completely after paint. Very pleased with the results!
