Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by My Go-To Product for interior wall repair. I've used Ready Patch many times for interior plaster and drywall repair. It applies well, sands easily and is essentially permanent. When used to fill larger holes it is necessary to apply in multiple applications to allow for minor shrinkage and drying - which will take at least 24 hours. The resulting patch, painted over, will be invisible. October 17, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gourmet Spackling Compound Excellent product, wish I would have discovered this years ago. Just found out its been the go-to product for professionals for years. For a dollar more its worth it. Spreads like cream, and non-shrink. I found the product to be almost completely shrink free and totally crack-free, in fact I was amazed. I'll never buy regular spackle again - I finally I found an exterior Spackle that I can have faith in. January 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product I wouldn't call it spackle. I use it to patch and skim much larger areas due to its durability an it's firm but workable consistency.it doesn't Crack like compound and it dries quickly.works well on wood for nail holes as well due to its lack of shrinking. I give it an A December 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Happy I have been very happy with this product. I have used it on exterrior jobs to prep facia boards for paint and also on craftier jobs. On one project in particular, I used it to fill all the cracks and voids in a project I built from low grade plywood. It took a few applications, but by the end everything was perfectly smooth and ready for paint. After a paintjob you couldn't see any plywood cracks, joint seams, or plywood edges. June 16, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor This was recommended for patching dry rot on exterior facia. Forget patching large areas or anything greater than, maybe, a 1/32 deep gouge. It DOES sag even on shallow (1/16+) gouges and does not cure. Mine has been in low humidity, 90+ degrees and still won't cure even after 24 hours.Removing it all and starting over with another product. July 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MH Ready Patch works I used this product on the exterior of house built in 1978. The old T1-11 siding was checked and cracked and in places had a honeycomb look with pin holes. I took the surface down to bare wood and primed with Peel Bond. The I used ready patch, sanded and primed again. When my finish coat was applied the surface looked awesome. I like this product because it dries quickly, sands smooth and is very easy to use. I had no issues with bubbling or peeling over the patched areas. I highly recommend this product. August 30, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by H W Ready Patch great stuff This "spackle" was a revelation--unlike other spackle, it can be used anywhere, and it's completely easy to handle and work with. I have used it on wood, plaster, and outdoor brick. I even plugged large voids with it, drilled into it to hang stuff, easily rebuilt cracked and sagging plaster knee wall, rebuilt deteriorating porch trim. It takes paint beautifully --in short, iit is holding our old house together--literally. AND, if that was not enough, you can paint over it as soon as the surface is dry--minutes. It goes on smooth as satin, but you can also sand it. It spreads so thin with a wallboard knife that even an amateur like me can feather it out to turn uneven cracked areas into smooth wall. Love this stuff! March 3, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product I've used this product to repair missing wood from fascia chewed by a squirrel, deteriorated garage door side trim near the ground, and water damaged soffit. It dries to a hard surface that's almost like sanding wood and can easily be blended with the surrounding area. If appled in thicker coats it takes a lot longer to dry than light weight spackling to dry. I've experienced no shrinkage and the repairs I've made with it look great. October 24, 2011
