Hello! I have parrots, so have to take into consideration a product's VOC's & keep all dangerous ...

Hello! I have parrots, so have to take into consideration a product's VOC's & keep all dangerous (air based) emissions as low as possible during my remodel. I was wondering if this product would work for me or if there's any 'greener' alternatives I should be looking at for patching my walls prior to painting. Thanks!
Asked by: Tabby
I have a parrot along with pet house bunnies & I wet sand this compound after it's 95% dry, yet not fully cured to keep any dust to a minimum. I wet sponge the area to limit the areas that are raised which leaves me with very little sanding to do.

Is the lightweight joint compound good for repairing holes from nails and bolts without using mesh or tape?

Asked by: Art
As long as your repairs are small & you over fill the patched areas in order to not leave a "dimple" appearance.

I'm patching a hole (about 6 inches in diameter) in our wall. Will this work well?

Asked by: Ash
any hole that is 6 inches in diameter really isn't patching....you'll need to repair it. Joint compound alone won't hold up without mesh tape and screen to effectively let the joint compound set up and dry evenly. Joseph

Customer Reviews

All-Purpose 3.5 Qt. Pre-Mixed Joint Compound is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful My boyfriend bought this garbage a few days ago as I was running out of compound. This stuff is awful, it's consistency is way too loose to be useful. Floating it on a wall any thicker than a millimeter results in air pockets as deep as the compound layer, and of course I'd have to sand it all the way down to get rid of those. What is the point of a joint compound that can't be laid thick enough to cover wall damage? The issue is that they made this compound so loose that it doesn't have enough surface tension to be laid even moderately thick, which makes it useless. I did not have time to go to the store so I was stuck with this and it took me three times longer to cover the chair rail damage than any other compound I've used would have taken. I was under a time crunch tonight fixing these walls so needless to say I'm very angry about the wasted time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from long life shelf life on this after opening was amazing! I got tired of throwing out 1/2 5 gallon buckets due to mold,the one gallon size is easier to store in limited areas. after opening the bucket and using a small amount,I resealed the bucket and after 6 months I reopened it and it was as clean as the day I used it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty Good Stuff Long story short I bought this because the ultralight 5 gal compound ran out, upon applying this stuff I noticed a significant difference in consistency and the curing time this stuff cures in like 1 hour the ultralight green stuff takes days. I would of been better off with this stuff in the first place, you live and you learn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beats other products for conistency I've always used this product. Was in other box store and needed some for quick remodel work and didn't want to buy large bucket. They didn't carry USG in this size. In a hurry I bought the DAP product and was sorry I did. The DAP product has the consistency of caulk and spreads like it and smears and hard to build up. Always go with the USG green bucket and you won't be disappointed.
