Bookmark and Share

Cracks quite often occur on bird baths due to wide temperature variations.  Repairing a crack on your favorite ornamental object is better than just throwing it away.  Use Devcon®home Gaps & Cracks to make a quick and simple fix.

Step-by-Step Directions

  1. Empty cracked bird bath of any water. 
  2. Clean surface area to be repaired from dirt, debris and any residue.  Use soap and water, if necessary, to thoroughly clean it.  Allow to dry.
  3. Using the Gaps & Cracks adhesive and filler, remove the caps and cut the tips from both bottles.  
  4. Apply adhesive into the crack or surface to be repaired.
  5. Apply a thin layer of the filler over the adhesive not exceeding 1/16" before adding the next layer of adhesive.
  6. Continue to apply adhesive and filler in layers until the crack is completely filled in. 
  7. When filling the crack, make sure that every inch of the repair is covered.  This will also help to serve as a sealant.
  8. Allow to sit for 24 hours before use.

 

Tips

  • Make sure to keep the bird bath in a dry, covered place when doing the repair.
