exterior spackle....


think I'll probably just have to buy another piece of AZEK, trying to avoid wasting a piece. It's expensive!



here's a direct link, may be able to take a closer look.

after a long day working, apparently too long, I cut a piece a bit short. I cut two 45s and attached another piece, not liking the connection I was getting when I just used bevel cuts and over lapped the pieces.

I scuffed/bruised up the piece real good when I was sanding (yeah I used a belt sander). I've got the two pieces flush, and I was wondering if there is an exterior spackle I can use on AZEK. I know I will have to paint it now that I am using spackle, but I've had to do some caulk work as well so it needs to some paint for a semaless look.


as always, thanks!

You've just spent more in time and material than you would have if you just bought a new piece, and to boot, it'll never look right. Buy a new piece, cut your losses.

Never really had any experience with it. From what I understand, it's early yet, as most who put it up do so to not have to paint, among other reasons. I've asked about it and from what I've been told, you paint it just like any other material. Time will tell.

I dont care what brand of exterior Spackle, what they claim. None of them will last long. At 45 degrees it will expand and contrast, ending up with hair line cracks. The only stuff will last long is caulk. Big Stretch is one of my favorite.

The only patching compound I've had good results with exterior is Bondo. It's a pia, but it's the only one I've had that doesn't crack and fail. They now make a bondo for home repair.
