Has anyone any experience of using Ronseal 'Smooth Over and Repair'? I have read very mixed reports about it so far. Before shelling out on it I need to know whether it is easy to get a smooth finish on a wall without too much sanding down or even without any sanding down afterwards (I don't like the dust when sanding (mask or no mask) and, in any event, I have read that smooth-over products can contain a form of asbestos - something to be avoided). Thanks,
Hi Dave, if you only want to do very small bits then I would say yes but it will be similar to put on as plaster and the finish will only be as good as you are at putting it on. So expect some sanding if you have not had much practice at this type of thing. If there is a lot to do like an whole wall then I would plaster it or if you can't do it yourself then get someone in. It shouldn't cost too much and you will have good surface to work with afterwards.
