Rated 1 out of 5Â by DrewConsumer Do not use on exteriors, especially decks.....
After power-washing and sanding my deck, I tested a spot with Elmers Wood Filler Max. It appeared to be a solid patch and for exterior use, so I applied it to several areas on my deck and let it cure for a few days. I then applied three coats of stain and the deck looked great, 6 months ago. Now EVERY place I applied the filler has disintegrated and I now need to dig out all the filler, find a product that works, and start again.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Termite Original Formula Much Better
Difficult to work while wet and hard to sand. I made the mistake of buying this and expecting an improvement over the original formula. Big mistake in expense, working and cleanup. Home Depot should stock the original formula which is better and less expensive.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by TomL Dries very hard; To re-liquefy just add water
An improvement over the previous formula in that it dries much harder. It is more grainy, though, which takes some getting used to. If the lid doesn't close tightly (frequent complaint) and it gets dry, just add a little water and stir: it'll be good as new.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by srotto5 Great product
I used this to patch a large and deep area next to the bathtub where the floor had rotted. Because the area was so deep it took 3 applications. However, the product dried incredibly hard and sanded extremely smooth. I was very satisfied with this wood filler.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by bdepot not for smooth surfaces
+easy of use, no mixing hardener +low odor
- too gritty. Hard to get the smooth surface I needed and ended up using Minwax filler for subsequent coats.
