Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kk333 So far so good!
I am only going to give this product 4 stars for now. I used this on thin stress cracks on the ceiling of our mobile home which is drywalled and the home is in the ground.
We live in the desert so there is settling going on all the time and I have very heavy granite countertops with a 6 foot by 6 foot island and this is where the cracks are occurring because of the weight.
I am a female and decided this was going to me my project to conquer and so I did. I followed the directions as stated and it has now been 4 weeks and no cracks yet.
Very good product, but be sure to wear a mask when spraying because the odor is quite strong. Keeping my fingers crossed that this will do the trick and then I will give it 5 stars for sure.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chazoo Works sometimes on small cracks when other crack methods don't work
Have used this product over the years to repair nagging small cracks that always reappear after quick fixes with the "crack-resistance" crack fillers available in small tubs. This does the trick and with a good latex paint over the Goodbye Cracks spray,
There are some limitations; 1) This product only works effectively when applied to gypsum-based joint compounds and spackles. It never dries properly when sprayed over polymer-based fillers and spackles. 2) It is not affective when used by itself over deep, large cracks. The big cracks require gouging out with a can opener or other tool, to remove enough material to give a good plaster-based compound a solid foundation to bond and grab. Once large cracks are repaired this way, you'd need several cans of Goodbye Cracks to cover over it and if the initial repair is done properly, the additional overspray of Goodbye Cracks does not help. Nagging. large cracks are usually caused by other issues (water seepage, structural issues, etc.) and no amount of spackle or repair spray will provide a long term solution until the underlying cause is resolved.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Uffda Only good with proper prep
This product covers small cracks only if the cracks have been gouged out and spackled over (filled and smoothed) and sanded if necessary. I used DAP lightweight sparkling. Spray this on lightly. Paint and crack disappears. Good prep is the key. Poor prep and the crack area will still show.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pedalcar covers cracks that keep coming back
easy to use, the crack that kept opening back up after repairs was covered with this product and painted and did not come back. I used this product 7 years ago on another crack that would not stay fixed and it has not come back since I used this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Laszlo A very good product
I used this product on two occasions for repairing fine stress cracks in walls and ceilings. The cracks were from hairline to 1/8 inch wide and up to two feet long. Following the instructions on the label I was able to make the repairs successfully. Obviously it is very important to match the surface finish to the adjacent areas for appearance and color. I definitely recommend this product. Too bad it is no longer sold in our local HD store, but as it was be delivered free to the store, it is no big deal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rgregg804 Have used this product for years and always been satisfied.
For old homes like mine (plaster walls), this product has been great is hiding minor cracks. Paints covers nicely as long as you have a small texture. Only problem is finding this product in stores. Had to order on line. Painting project had to wait until product arrived.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fordie36 This product does an excellent job of hiding cracks!
I filled the cracks with painters caulk, sanded the lightly and then sprayed goodbye cracks over the cracks. After painting you could not see where the crack was.

I purchase this because I had some hairline cracks that I hoped to cover. But once I read the directions, and had to plaster before using I didn't feel it was worth it.
