Hi, I'm Steve Clark of RFC of San Francisco. Today, we're gonna be speaking about what is the best spackle for drywall? If you have a dent in your drywall, you can purchase premade spackle at a store which will work fine, but the problem with premade spackle, it takes about one to five hours to cure, and it also, it doesn't sand the best, and you cannot use it for exterior exposure. I, personally, like to use a different product than spackle when repairing drywall. This is a 20 minute topping compound. That means in about 20 minutes, it will set, dry, and you can sand it, do your priming and your painting, and you're done. You can also buy it in 45 minutes, and 90. So, you not only save time, but it's a better product and it's easier to work with. I'm Steve Clark, licensed general contractor, licensed plumber of RFC of San Francisco. Thanks for watching!
