repair to plasterboard

Postby rnd » Tue Oct 02, 2007 8:55 am

hi all , can anybody advice me , iam a little confused , iam about to repair a hole in my plasterboard which will be about 1 foot square when ive cut it back and replaced with a new board . but before i go any further i was told to use bonding/ browning first then skim over ( when dry ) with finish .
but to add to my confusion someone else told me to just skim over with finish .
who is right ? or do both methods work .

Simply Build It

Hi rnd,
If the board is near level, should really be stepped back a little bit about 3mm or so, then just skim the board. Browning and bonding used for other apllications, normally straight on to brick and block work then you skim over!
Good Luck
