Q:I have windows sills cracking, how can I use this product correctly to seal the small cracks.
by|Sep 16, 2022

Answer This Question

A:  Thank you for posting your inquiry. The DAP PATCH-N-PAINT is: ideal for filling holes, cracks, dents and defects on: drywall, plaster, brick, stucco and wood. Per package label and product literature: 1. Surface must be free of grease, oil and other foreign matter. 2. Stir thoroughly before use. (When using the 2.8 oz tube, remove top, grip tube bottom & twist up a very small amount (about 1/16”) of filler. Either apply directly to surface or using built-in spackling knife, scrape off spackling from top of tube & apply to wall) 3. Using a clean putty knife, press spackling into hole or crack. 4. Draw blade firmly across the surface to remove excess material in one strike. 5. For a smoother finish, dip putty knife into water and lightly smooth spackling. 6. One application is usually sufficient for small repairs. For repairs deeper than 1/8”, apply two or more layers allowing spackling to dry between applications. 7. May be painted within minutes with a latex paint. Please follow paint manufacturer’s instructions for application. 8. If sanding is desired, or if an oil-based paint is to be used, allow to dry thoroughly (approximately 24 hours). Should you have any questions or require further assistance, please contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477.

    A:  Thank you for posting your inquiry. DAP PATCH-N-PAINT is specifically designed and recommended for use as a wall/ceiling repair filler on minor/cosmetic repairs. DAP does not recommend this product or other similar repair filler products we offer for spreading, veneering or "skim coating" (resurfacing) applications. Because you did not provide enough details about your attempted application, it is difficult to provide a more detailed response or specific product application guidance in this format. At your convenience, please contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477 so that we can obtain some additional information regarding your project and to offer some additional application guidance and/or a recommendation for an alternate product.

        Answer This Question

        A:  No. Interior only. Use a cement stucco based product.

        by|Jul 1, 2022

          A:  Thank you for posting your feedback on DAP PATCH-N-PAINT Lightweight Spackling. While PATCH-N-PAINT is appropriate for both interior and exterior applications, it is not rated for stand-alone performance. As indicated on the product package label and supporting product literature: "For exterior applications, first apply exterior-grade primer, then apply spackling and finish with coating of quality exterior-grade paint." Should you have any additional questions or wish to discuss this further, please contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477.

            2 Answers
            Answer This Question

            A:  I wouldn't reccomend this product for that use. You need to either fill with grout or use a stronger product like bondo.

            by|Feb 20, 2022

              A:  Thank you for posting your inquiry. DAP PATCH-N-PAINT Lightweight Spackling is designed and marketed for minor cosmetic/surface repairs, such as dents/dings in wallboard, it is not designed or recommended for use on ceramic tile or as a substitute for traditional ceramic tile grout (joint filling between tiles). Should you have any additional questions or require further assistance, please contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477.

                Thank you for posting your feedback on DAP PATCH-N-PAINT Lightweight Spackling. This product is designed and marketed for minor cosmetic/surface repairs, such as dents/dings in wallboard (not large/deep repairs). The most common cause for slow dry time is related to environmental conditions (lower temperatures, higher humidity) and application of the product in excess of its recommended fill depth. As indicated on the product package label and supporting product literature: "One application is usually sufficient for small repairs. For repairs deeper than 1/8”, apply two or more layers allowing spackling to dry between applications." Because you did not provide any details regarding your experience, such as the application surface, temperature, humidly, depth of fill, or application technique, it is difficult to provide you with a more detailed reply or specific product usage guidance in this format. Should wish to provide these details, so that we can provide you with more specific product usage guidance or to recommend a more appropriate product, please feel free to contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477.

                  Thank you for posting your feedback on DAP PATCH-N-PAINT Lightweight Spackling. With respect to your commentary indicting: “it bleed thur my paint leaving brown circle”, would appear to signal that your wood contains sap/and or tannin (wood resin) or that there may be a metallic fastener in your wood (in proximity to the repaired area), as there is nothing contained within the DAP PATCH-N-PAINT formula that could produce a “brown” color as you indicate. Because you did not provide enough details about your attempted use of the PATCH-N-PAINT or your attempted finishing process, it is difficult to provide you with any specific guidance in this format. Should you wish to provide this information, so we can address your concern and to provide you with some possible repair options, please feel free to contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477.

                  Disclaimer: I don't have a LOT of experience patching drywall. But it spread like buttah and has done the job. My technique could be better, of course. Gonna store THIS one in the house, not the garage, though -- but I guess more than a decade is too much to expect of any spackle/caulk container eh? =lol=

                  This is not worth buying. It is under 4 oz with the container.

                  Thank you for posting your feedback. DAP PATCH-N-PAINT Lightweight Spackling is filled by volume (FL. OZ.), not by weight NET WT.

                      Too light weight
                      I needed a large amount of spackle to repair some holes in the ceiling and redo all the taping. I could not find a large bucket this size in "REAL" spackle so I settled on this product hoping it would work as well as "REAL spackle. It didn't. t is too thin and really only good for covering screw dimples and little nicks. Skim coats is all that it is good for. I now have to get "REAL spackle to fix the POOR hole filling (I taped first).

                        Junk
                        This has to to be some of the cheapest and most irritating spackle ive ever used. This spackle takes an extremely long time to dry and once it does its not even solid. This spackle resembles more of a flex paste rather than spackle. Its not a good product to use if you plan to sand it and paint over it. It simply is not good. Its rubber.

                        Thank you for posting your feedback. We're sorry to see your low star review on DAP PATCH-N-PAINT Lightweight Spackling. PATCH-N-PAINT is specifically formulated as a low moisture/low density spackling compound for faster dry time/paint time. PATCH-N-PAINT does not dry with the same hardness as traditional heavyweight spackling compounds. As this is a water-based (acrylic-latex) formula, the sole drying mechanism is the evaporation of water. Dry time can be significantly impacted by cool or humid application conditions, moisture in the application surfaces or by thick (deep) applications of the patch. The most common cause for slow dry time/development of full hardness, results from application in excess of the recommended fill depth or application outside of recommended guidance. As indicated on the product package label and supporting product literature: "One application is usually sufficient for small repairs. For repairs deeper than 1/8”, apply two or more layers allowing spackling to dry between applications." and "PATCH-N-PAINT may be painted within minutes with a latex paint. Please follow paint manufacturer’s instructions for application. If sanding is desired, or if an oil-based paint is to be used, allow to dry thoroughly, approximately 24 hours, longer dry time may be required in cooler and/or more humid condition or where deep repairs have been made." Full dry/full hardness will only occur once all of the water contained in the formula has evaporated. Because you did not provide any details regarding your experience, such as the application surface, width/depth of fill, temperature, humidly or application technique, it is difficult to provide you with a more details reply in this format. DAP offers several traditional spackling compounds that may be more in line with your needs/preferences. At your convenience, please contact DAP’s Technical Customer Service Department at 888-327-8477 so that we suggest an alternate product that aligns with your preferences. DAP
