Easy fixes for cracks inside or outside your home

This week I want to share some info about cracks that appear around the house. Cracks on the walls inside the house do not have to be stressful. And they don’t have to take three days to repair. All it takes is some Goodbye Cracks (appropriate name) and Dry Dex Spackling and about two hours.

Fill the crack with the Dry Dex and when it turns white, it’s dry. Then spray the Goodbye Cracks over the spackling in a light coat, let dry and apply two more thin coats. That’s it! Now you are ready to paint.

If you have a crack on the outside of the house whether it’s in the mortar of the brick, stone or stucco it’s just as easy to fix with More Flex. More Flex comes in a caulking tube and has the same texture as mortar. It comes in two colors, a light beige, and light grey. You can also have cracks in the stucco that covers up the slab. You can cover that up with the More Flex. I just want to mention that just because you have cracks inside the house, or on the outside of house, it doesn’t mean that your foundation is faulty. They build foundations to flex, and when they do, sometimes you get little cracks. So don’t let anyone scare you into thinking you have a real problem, when you don’t.
