Hi, I live in a block of flats and in my bedroom radiator pipes or something run at the side of the wall protected by a hardboard box. It's that thin stuff you might find stapled onto the back of a bookshelf. It's got quite a lot of damage, I'm not concerned how it's going to end up looking but what's the best sort of glue to use that will allow it to be finished off nicely at a later date. It looks like someone has tried to repair it in the past with Polyfilla and it hasn't worked at all. Many thanks.

For the cost, I would change the hardboard. You can even buy it "ready painted" in white


Other suppliers of white hardboard are available.

Take it easy, a forum is only a collection of opinions. Above, are mine.

you can buy lengths of MDF in various section s and colours. whatever you use will depend on the framing, usual is 50mm x 50mm, behind the hardboard.
MDFcan be ripped for width.
