Great product
Works great. Mix well. Easy to apply. Easily comes off of floor. I used it to get rid of textured walls. Will definitely use it again for this kind of work.

    Does what its intended to do
    I have used this joint compound for almost 4 years now and have been happy with the results. It mixes up well with a little bit of water to thin it out for precise applications. It has met my expectations so far and I have not had a reason to dislike it. It is very affordable and this bucket will go a long way.
