Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product This product is easy to use and has very allowable time to continue to work with it until it dries. It is also great to thin down a bit with water and use to texture ceilings and walls. "Dry Time" is 24 hrs so it would be better if that was less in order to be able to put on more coats in a shorter period of time because you want to make sure that you apply this product very thin and do more coats to avoid cracking etc as with most joint compounds when applied too thick. It beats the alternative though of the "quick dry" formulas. December 15, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good stuff Used this to mud a newly drywalled bathroom. Easy to use (I'm no pro) and it stays wet long enough for those of us who are slow at this. I had no problems with lumps, etc. It was smooth and consistent. Thin it with water and it works well as a texture, too. 61 pound bucket is HEAVY. November 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by It ha s been the only brand I use . I have been doing drywall off and on for 30 years .This is the one I see on construction sites everywhere I go .It has the best spreadability if there is such a word ,and consistency . When I go to shop ,it's the green ,red and white I look for. Plus remains consistent longer than others .Even when it is opened and closed often. September 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Plastered This was really easy to use...took less time than I expected and the results are fantastic. I plan to use this all over my 1893 home. November 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by easy to use During my remodeling project I went through a lot of joint compound. This was not the original brand I started with, but ended up buying it because I needed the bigger tub. What I will say is that out of the other two brands I used, this one had the easiest to work with consistency (it was a little thicker). Also, it was the only brand out of the three that when you open it, there wasn't a bunch water that had separated out. I would buy this one again and again. November 2, 2009
