plaster repair


Postby ruff cut » Wed Nov 05, 2008 10:49 pm

Hi all this is my first post on this forum so bare with me. I have a large plaster repair to do at home i took off a dado rail and a load of plaster with it leaving just exposed brick. i want to board this area and re skim as opposed to floating (to messy). The plaster is 15mm thick, would i get away with 9.5mm board dot and dabbed to brick or would that bring it out proud of the existing plaster. or could i use mechanical fixings i looked on british gypsums site and saw nailable plugs,can you skim over these??any advice would be appreciated. ps what about normal screws and plugs??

9.5mm are fine, dot bad method best using wall adheshive, leave about 3mm of board recessed back so can apply plaster finish.
