Hi

I'm having a kitchen fitted as part of this the sparky came today and chased in some sockets. They roughly filled with universal plaster which has cracked and hasn't completely filled all the chases. What should i used to fill cracked etc and give a good finish aster bring sanded? Would this be ok?

Thanks

Mark

In my opinion this would be better http://www.screwfix.com/p/toupret-powde ... -2kg/4911h because that fine filler is ok for very small shallow cracks but you have chases to fill and you need something with a bit more body.
The chase in the second picture is a bit deeper and may need a couple of applications to get it level but that shouldn't be a problem if you leave it to dry for 24 hours. I have used this many times and it is a good filler, maybe one of the decorators on here will recommend another filler that they have found reliable.
The only other one I would recommend is easy fill 45 as this is relatively cheap as well as easy to apply and sand.

Mike

That plaster could be off ... photo #1. See that it is not crumbly otherwise I too agree with toupret (and it is a little cheaper on toolstation).
