Postby rnd » Fri May 25, 2007 6:20 pm

can you , ( or anybody ) please help , i have just started a project at my home where all the walls are so uneven, i have as much as a 20mm gap from the top of the wall , but at the bottom of the wall is perfect, and straight to the featheredge . i am bording the walls . How do i put a corner beed onto the wall ( or skim over ) such a large gap between the wall , as there is such of a difference .

do i just skim over the wall adisive as i have leveled it off , or do i need to do something else .Ferthermore the angle beed fits ok at the skirtingboard end but is well out at the top 20mm, what do i need to look at....? a different beding or do i apply the finish in more than the recomened 2mm covering . please help this is driving me mad .

If you are boarding the walls you can fix battens to it and pack out the battens where necessary to get it upright and flush. Special shims can be bought just for this purpose and they simply slot in behind the battens. Click on the link below to see and/or buy them. ... 071&m=1228
