Rated 5 out of 5 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 4 out of 5 by Good stuff but it DOES shrink. Anyone who tells you that there's no shrinkage with this product needs to get their eyes examined, unless perhaps they are only filling surface imperfections that are a millimeter deep. Small nail holes in siding for example will require a second top coat in order to avoid the dimple. It's a great medium weight and fast drying putty. Just don't set your expectations too high.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Spreads like the better butter The sparkle goes on easily and spreads uniformly. It works well but dries too slowly for multiple layers in large holes. A great product for cracks and small to medium holes. July 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 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 out of 5 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
