Our Take on DAP Lightweight Spackle
Before painting the main living area in our new home, it was required for us to do some dry-wall repair and ceiling touchups. Since the repairs were small, we didn’t want to spend a lot of time spackling and sanding the areas before painting – we just wanted to get it done! When searching for a fast-drying spackle, we came across the DAP Lightweight Spackle and decided to give it a try for the small repairs throughout our family room based on the claims the product made about its performance.
When the product arrived, we went right to work making the repairs. The DAP Lightweight Spackle went on easily and dried much quicker than traditional spackle. After allowing the spackle to set we went ahead and painted directly over it. On the walls where we used a lighter color, you could not see the spackle coming through the paint. We did one accent wall a darker color – you could easily see the spackle through the darker colored paint and it took a few extra coats in that area to cover it.
Overall, we were happy with the DAP Lightweight Spackle – it went on easily and dried quickly which helped to move our project along that much quicker. No sanding was required for application and, although it did show through the darker paint we used, it was worth it to be able to get the room painted and ready to use in a shorter amount of time. The DAP Lightweight Spackle does what it advertises and we would recommend this to anyone who is doing home repairs.
