Dear All,

I’ve a plasterer coming on Wednesday to sort out a small room but I’ve got some prep work to do. I need this hole filling in. I was going to use cement and old bricks but it’s angling down and will be hard for me to get anything to stick.

If I fill the hole with expanding foam will plaster stick to it? And if so, will I need to hack it back so he can attach some dob and dabbed plasterboard?

Thanks,

Andy

No it won't ... you'll need some sand and cement in there followed by bonding...

Doubt you'll have time for that to set in that timescale.

Ohh dear. Thank you. I’m terrible at knocking up sand and cement.

buy a small bag of ready mixed mortar (wickes/b and q etc.) just add water and mix up in a small bucket. Not too wet or it'll slump.

Thanks WineO. I’ve cement and sand in the shed. Am I to assume it’s a 4:1 ratio?

4/1 is about right, but looking at that hole you'll need summat to slow down setting, plasticiser for instance else it'll dy out too quick and crack...
