I’m a domestic goddess, and I love to DIY. You can imagine how excited I was when I had a new home built and could finally get my hands dirty with some serious home projects.
However, there are many materials that have been used for building homes over the years, such as wood and concrete.
But what about PVC? PVC doesn’t have quite the same ring to it as “wood” or even “concrete.” In fact, you probably aren’t familiar with this material unless you’re in construction or know someone who is. But can you use wood filler on PVC?

What to use to fill holes in PVC?
When it comes to filling holes in PVC, you can use the following materials:
- PVC filler
- PVC glue
- PVC glue and filler
You can also fill the hole with just glue, which is what most people do. There are two reasons for this. First, it’s easier and cheaper to buy these products than a full set of clamps.
Second, there’s a chance that clamps may squeeze out some of your glue or filler if they get too close to one another and push against each other while they dry.
This could lead to an uneven surface on your piece once everything has dried completely.
How do you fill Brad holes in PVC trim?
To fill Brad holes in PVC trim, you’ll want to select a wood filler that is specifically designed for plastic. You should also use a high-quality filler that has a smooth finish and easy application.
The best way to do this is by selecting a water-based wood filler, which is more flexible than solvent-based fillers.
This means it won’t crack or shrink when exposed to heat and cold–great news if you live in an area with extreme temperature fluctuations!
Can you fill holes in PVC?
Yes, you can fill holes in PVC. There are a variety of ways to do this, but the following steps will teach you how to use the best method for your situation.
- Use wood filler. If your home is small and shallow, wood filler is an ideal option because it’s inexpensive and easy to apply. Simply coat the inside of the hole with wood filler and let it dry before sanding it smooth.
- Use epoxy to fill holes in PVC pipes (or other objects made from plastic). Epoxy has been used as a filling material since ancient times because it can bond with both plastic and metal surfaces without melting them down like some glues would do! The most common type of epoxy is two-part epoxy resin glue which requires mixing together equal parts before using on its intended target object(s).

How do you fill UPVC door holes?
- There are two main types of filler: epoxy, which is great for large holes, and deep scratches, and polyester, which is better for small areas like cracks and gouges. You can use either type on UPVC doors—it’s really about personal preference.
- If there’s a lot of damage to your door, the best option is probably an epoxy filler. It will fill in bigger gaps more effectively than polyester filler will, but it’s also more difficult to apply neatly (especially if you’re new). Polyester is good if you have some small dings or scratches in the door that need filling up; they’ll look more professional once filled than if they were left untreated
- Some people think it might be better just to repaint the whole door instead—and this may work out cheaper than buying lots of different fillers—but it has one major drawback: there’s no way for paint alone to hide old damage inside a gap between panels or around locks, etc., whereas filling does provide such coverage
How do you fill UPVC fascia board holes?
UPVC fascia boards can be tricky to work with. But they’re often necessary if you want your home to look new and modern.
If you’re wondering how do you fill UPVC fascia board holes? The first step is to determine whether the hole is going to need a whole lot of filler or just a little bit.
If the hole needs only a little bit, it’s best to use wood filler that comes in an aerosol can. You’ll simply spray the filler into the hole, apply it with a small brush, and allow it to dry completely before sanding off any excess residue from around edges of your hole with sandpaper or wire wool.
If there’s more damage than just one small hole, then you may want another option: applying foam sealant around all four sides of each piece where damage has occurred by spraying foam into cracks or gaps between pieces until they are completely filled up.

How do you hide screws in PVC trim?
- Use a caulking gun to apply the filler: Fill the caulking gun with the appropriate amount of wood filler, and then use your finger to push it into place.
- Use a putty knife to apply the filler: Pour some wood filler onto your hand or into a bowl, then use your finger to spread it over any holes or gaps in your trim.
- Use a small paint brush to apply the filler: This will allow you to get into tight spaces more easily than using fingers alone would be able to do.
- Use a small piece of cardboard (or something similar) as an applicator for applying wood grain fillers. The cardboard will give you better control over how much material goes where and can help prevent messes from occurring during application process!
