Questions & Answers


Can this material be used to fill/repair ceramic tile joints in a shower stall?

Asked by John February 13, 2021

Not the correct product. This Joint Compound is for Gypsum Wallboard. You need Tile Grout... Sanded or unsanded depending on the width of the joint.

I ripped drywall paper taking off molding. Can i use this to repair the ripped paper? If so, do I need to prime the drywall before I put this on?

Asked by Stu13 February 2, 2021

Thank you for your inquiry. Yes you can use Sheetrock All Purpose Joint Compound to repair small sections of wallboard where the paper has torn. Peel and remove loose face paper. Apply a skim coat of joint compound with a joint finishing knife to damaged area and feather to get a smooth finish. Let dry and apply second coat if necessary. Sand and prime when dry.

Asked by Steve November 14, 2020

Steve Thank you for your inquiry. Sheetrock All Purpose Joint compound is ideal for taping joints and cracks with paper tape. It is easier to spread and dries gradually, providing a hard finish. Hope this helps.

Asked by Dave October 6, 2018

I'm just an amateur drywaller (remodeling my bathroom) - but here's what I did. I mixed the joint compound with a little water to thin it a tad for the 2nd and 3rd coats. I didn't mix it in the bucket though. I filled my mud pan a little more than half way with joint compound (mud), added about a little more than a half coffee mug of water, then mixed using a paint stick. It took a few minutes to mix and it made it much easier to apply and get a smooth coat. Had I known how much better it goes on, I may have done that on my first coat as well. Even if you're not adding water, you're still going to mix it in the mud pan as you apply it so I wouldn't worry about mixing it in the bucket. A professional drywaller may say otherwise (and I would defer to their professional opinion), but I didn't and my walls look great. I just finished painting and they are as smooth as can be.

Asked by Ted July 8, 2018

My suggestion would be to use a wallboard primer first. Even though today’s paints have primers already in them, when priming wallboard you want to give it a little “bite” bring it is a new surface. Again, my opinion.

How to repair 6" hole in wall?

Asked by Mark April 9, 2018

Square the hole, then cut a square piece of drywall to fit loosely. Attach the drywall with drywall clips, fill gaps with mud, cover with paper tape, then cover tape with mud. Sand and paint.

I use to use this product all the time. I would buy a large bucket to keep on hand but USG has, apparently, changed their formula so that any unused portion will get moldy within the bucket after only a few months. My guess is that it is an underhanded way to get you to buy more of the stuff (when you have to throw the molded left-overs in the trash). The last time I bought this, I only bought a small tub for a minor repair. When I tried to use it again, the 98% leftover had a slimy mold on top. I search online and others have reported the same... Whatever happened to the pride of making a quality product in America, for hard working Americans? I will try other products. Very disappointed.
