General Repair Uses

Durham’s® Rock Hard® Water Putty fills voids like holes, cracks, and the like. Just fill the void completely until the putty bounces back. After the putty has set up, remove the excess. It adheres to the sides of the hole for permanence. Use Durham’s to patch cracks and holes in walls, repair furniture, tighten loose wood joints, fill holes in wood so dowels and/or screws can be reset, fill edges and imperfections in plywood, and repair all kinds of antiques.

Patch Cracked Plaster Walls

Use a putty knife to spread Durham’s into cracks and cavities of plaster walls. Durham’s Water Putty does not shrink so the cracks disappear. Plus, your repair will last and last.
