I haven't painted much PVC but when I did I used SW's adhesion primer first then filled in with Elmer's like normal. Never got a phone call so it must have stuck!

Could you elaborate please? As I said I have not heard of any problems and these HOs would certainly notice but I don't want to do it again if it's prone to fail.

Btw I'm pretty sure they were nails....

Question

nails hole are fine....anything larger is not. The wood filler is not hard or rigid enough for a large hole. Especially on a exterior. Change in temperature and moisture causes movement, even though it may be slight if its not a two part compound or a epoxy or something that dries hard and dense-----> pop. Out comes the elmers. Seen it a thousand times on exterior repaints. May not happen right away....but over time it will.

I just use Caulk in most cases on exteriors. I can make it smooth out pretty good.

My hardwarestore is selling trim head screws with white pcv caps that you can just put right in the hole after the screw. I have seen samples and you can't even see that there was a screw there with the cap in.

I think it is probably GRK that sells them.

Looks like there might be a few manufaturers search "plugs" not caps.
