What is a snagging filler?

A term used in commercial decoration. When you've finished the job the builder will give you a snag sheet. A list of what he considers could be improved, missed filling, nail pops etc.

if i spot something i missed that's when i reach for my Onetime.

A Punchlist in the UK is what we use to determine who has upset us at work the most in any given week. The top offender is the one who gets Punched.

A snag list is as Paulingrad described :laughing:

We use em all.

Not too particular unless it's bigger or in a hi-viz spot.... and we usually blast any sort of repair with the small texture pump since it's usually set up anyway....

For just small nail holes, fluffy wuffy stuff. It's extremely useful because I don't always see every single hole, until i'm already painting.

Some places, like kids rooms have a lot of holes, then it's time for mud.

Some holes are bigger than a nail, maybe a screw that's been backed out and needs to be tapped with a hammer or blunt end of the 5n1, mud for that too.

The brands don't matter as much as the fact that, for us, it is a two-step process. We fill with fluff, let dry, sand, fill with a knife-grade spackle, sand again. We've found this is the only way to make them completely dissappear . . . we don't get that crazy on all jobs but on the higher-end stuff we do. It really makes a difference.

Red Devil OneTime, easy to apply, dries almost instantly in small holes, if it dries out in the bucket, just add more water and it's good as new. I've even thinned it with water as makeshift joint compound in a pinch

Started using Crawfords just this month! I like it a lot. Have always used the regular painters putty but with the Crawfords (waterborne) it is not as mess to the hands and it won't bleed through like regular painters putty can do sometimes.

Besides, we consider it more environmentally friendly and it goes with our new green marketing program better.
