DAP Drydex Spackling and Nail Hole Filler, 5.5 oz
Paint scraper 1-inch
Mr. Victor Longpont hired my services to remove his garage door that had become damaged after a bad rain storm. The door had not been painted for over 30 years, the bottom of the door was damaged by a badly worn door shoe and sweep that allowed water into the bottom of the door.
This post shows the three steps to caulking the drill holes within the pre-hung door frame.
Step 1: Use DAP Nail Hole Filler to fill in the holes from the drill. DAP states from their website that the Nail Hole Filler contains an indicator that causes the application to change from pink to white. This spackling compound is good for outdoor use. It did shrink a little but applying a second coat to the nail holes fix that problem, and the nail hole filler was easy to sand and later paint.
Step 2: Fig.1 shows two areas that hole filler was applied and filled the holes.
Step 3: Fig.2 shows the hinge side of the door frame, notice the pink holes in the frame show that the area is still drying.
