Customer Questions & Answers

I want to finish over drywall with a resulting look of concrete walls with a sandy troweled finish. Can I just add sand and color to drywall mud?

Asked by: Anonymous
No dice. This is still joint compound. It has no finish component. Add a little water to it after you get it on your walls and it will melt as fast as the Wicked Witch of the West.

How long before you can sand

Asked by: Wildcat
Thank you for your question. This can vary depending on the substrate and product thickness normally you can sand the same day.

Sheetrock plus 3 stills good after 1 year or more?

I have a half gallon of Sheetrock plus 3 compound, it's been in storage like about a year, my question is if it's still good? First it was storage in my shed during the winter, I then moved it to my basement, I guess it got a little harder but can I mix it with some water to make it smooth, will that work and dry normal or I shouldn't use it at all?
Asked by: eMusic
At the cost just get new. Once it freezes it usually is bad.

I removed wallpaper from my ealls amd there is a glue residue-can I put a coat of this on top to even out the texture?

can I use this instead of sanding them?
Asked by: Jessican
I recommend that you remove the glue residue than cover up the problem. Wallpaper adhesive is primarily water-based so it should come off pretty easily.

Plus 3 Lightweight All-Purpose 4.5 Gal. Pre-Mixed Joint Compound is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 34.

I used this compound when remodeling/replacing drywall in my bathroom in AZ. I used it for texturing the entire house. It is wonderfully easy to work with and needs little to no sanding. For a homeowner I was elated. I did the work in 2011. It's still there and the new homeowners (as of June 2016) love the texture throughout. Now, I live in the Green Bay, WI area and these HD stores do not carry it. I am so sad about that as I am ready to start texturing my home here. They do carry an ultralight version that has mixed reviews. Most of the reviews are split between 4 and 1 stars. Sigh. Why can't these stores give their customers both options instead of eliminating a most excellent product off their shelves.

Very smooth as a finishing coat. the only difference I've noticed is that compared to the regular compound, the Plus 3 seems drier straight from the can and the can overall is lighter (probably due to less water in the mixture). I find the only problem is that it tends to crumble when working on inside corners. Between the both, I'd probably stick with the green especially if you're working in a dry environment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from can't beat the price Decent stuff for the price. just remember to thin it down before you use it. Also for the guy that said he had mold. Your bucket had an air leak

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have used this for years I'm not a professional spackler but I rehab houses so I go through tons of this stull. I find it easier to blend than the general purpose joint compound so less sanding is required. If I require a third coat it's usually a touch-up coat to fill in pin holes. I'll cut this third coat with water to the consistency of pudding so it feathers nicely. Here's some pointers I learned over the years. Scrap down the sides of the bucket as you go so all the compound remains moist. Dried bits of compound in the mix equates to streaks on the wall. Load your hawk with small amounts at a time so you won't have to return unused portions to the bucket. Lastly, if you cut the mix with tap water cut it on the hawk and not in the bucket. This stuff will form a layer of mold in no time.

It's a lot easier and forgiving than the general compound stuff. It dries faster, less coats, less standing and it doesn't seem to shrink as much. I've used it for years and in every room and situation. I definitely recommend and is idle for a novice spackler.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little shrinkage good product If you are not one that has to mix their own mud, this is the next product on To-Get list. Little shrinkage from application to set time.
