Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy sandinf I've used this product for drywall repair and it has its quirks but is good for a variety of jobs. For fillings cracks, holes, and depressions it works well. It sands easy but does sometimes bubbles and certainly shrinks as it dries so a second application for larger holes is often needed. This product procuces a consjderable amount of dust when sanding if fully dry. The biggest draw back of this product I've found is that it is not very durable but for the majority of quick jobs I used this as my go to as it's already mixed and applies easily/quickly. There are a number of applications where I would elect to use a different product over this one however.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I would not rcommend this product for anything other than top coat. It has no strength when set and is very soft.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor product - don't spend your money on it. Do not spend your money on this product. It certainly has dust control. However it is gloppy and does not smooth out properly. You constantly are fighting with the finish being even. DONT' SPEND YOUR MONEY ON THIS PRODUCT. BUY ANOTHER ONE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good mud. Works as described, decent dust management. I would buy again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hard to sand Tried this product and found that ordinary drywall mud is a much better choice. This is so watery and after drying is hard to sand. Ended up in a trash container. Not recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Redi Filler If your patching over existing painted walls be prepared to have some bubbles in your taping..sanding between coats and retaping over the area will eliminate the bubbles.

How good is this for skim coating? Is it better or worse than CGC Synko Lite Joint Drywall Compound?

Asked by: DIYer
CGC's own literature states "Ideal for skim coating" in this file: https://images.homedepot.ca/pdf/Interior+Finishing+Product+Guide+-+Synko-pdf.pdf Why would you say it is ideal for skim coating and now tell me it is not recommended?!

I used this compound for my first coat for all tapered/butt joints and corners, can i still used this for second coat then for the third coat is Ultralight drywall compound? Or is it better to use ultra light for second and third coat?

Asked by: Eric
You can but you don't have to. If you add a bit of water to the compound you will find that it flows on easier and will reduce the amount of sanding you will require.

I'm brand new to drywalling and didn't make the best cuts so there's some gaps that are up to 3/4 inch in one corner but typically the sheets have about 1/4 inch space between. Would this work to fill these gaps? If not, what is recommended to fill them?

Asked by: DDM1990
We would not recommend a ready-mixed compound, and product you selected is a Western Canada product. Since you are in Western Canada, we would recommend Concrete Fill, given the size of the gaps. It is very user friendly. Pro-Set 90 is another option, but you will need a few coats to fill the large gaps.

Will this product work for bedding a paper/vinyl corner bead (strait-flex, no-coat, level line ec)? Does it have adhesive in it that is equal to other "all purpose drywall compounds"?

Asked by: Matt403
Hi Matt403, Synko Redi-Filler is an all purpose drywall compound recommended to use for all levels of finish (taping, filling and finishing).
