Hi guys,

New to the forum and after some much needed advice. I recently had my whole house skimmed which didn't turn out as expected. Lots of uneven walls, bumps etc. Not the best job and these guys were meant to be professional plasterers.

Couple of questions, would using a machine sander help even this out? And secondly, what can I do with the wall in the pic?

Thanks

Sadly they were not pro plasterers. That's a mess. you could try sanding back to flat a lot of work involved though.

I know mate, got well and truly screwed over! Apart from being messy, would a rotary sander reduce the amount of work needed?

Good luck with sanding, get a plasterer in to over skim it, do then prep it yourself, blue grit it the day before.

That reminds me of my first ever go at plastering a decent sized wall. 3 hours to plaster it, then 3 days days to sand it flat :lol: :lol:

I would get someone else in to skim over that, you could get some easifill to flatten out and it will look good in the end, but will be loads of work and tons of dust when sanded. Also defeats the purpose of getting it plastered properly in the first place.
