Prep the surface
Surface should be clean, dry and free of dirt, oil & loose material. De-gloss if necessary.
Overfill and sand
Overfill the repair slightly when applying so you can sand it down to a smooth, flat finish when dry. For repairs deeper than 1⁄4”, apply spackling in layers and let each layer dry before applying the next.
DRYDex can be used for both interior and exterior applications. For exterior applications, always topcoat with a good quality exterior-grade paint for long-term durability.
