Hi there

As per the picture, I am in the process of removing wood chip. Most of the walls look ok - but one wall looks like this! Could anyone advise on best steps?

Many thanks!

Thank you.

If I go for the filler and sanding option - can you recommend a good filler? I've seen lots of negative opinions of readymade but then friends who have done this themselves suggested pre-mixed was better?

A fine powder filler would work ok. Don't put on too thick. I like gyproc easy fill personally

Thanks for the recommendation. Presumably I just keep applying thin layers until it is smooth? Sanding each time? Can I use this same product for lager holes in addition to those shown in the picture?

Thanks for answering all my novice questions - bitten off a bit more than I can chew maybe!

Use a good Pre-mixed fine surface filler. But what is equally important, buy yourself
a good quality filling knife! One with a wide blade (say 15cm at the end)
You will find that this tool will place the filler just where you want it (in the faults and not on the surface)
You will find yourself with a wall that needs very little finishing sanding.

Yes that's correct. Fill, sand, check, repeat.

You can use it for larger holes again in stages if really deep.

We all started somewhere and we all had to learn. This site is invaluable for advice without prejudice

Thanks for this. I only have a smallish one at the moment so will get a larger one. If I find myself with a wall that needs little sanding I will be delighted...

Toupret filler example and multiple knives. If you get two wide ones, you can use one to carry the filler and the other one to take bits of filler and apply it.

Probably too late now, do not use a steamer to remove wall paper, instead lots of water.

Could be worth while washing off all paste residue before filling and painting (as paste and paint will not agree with each other).

I have not yet attempted the filler but I was just wondering whether it will also work on walls like this? I removed the woodchip paper but there appears to be another layer in places (pic).

My main concern is whether it is realistic to get a decent finish on this surface...

Thank you

You need to sand those edges and fill. If you don't the paint will peel when fresh paint is applied.

Don't forget to sugar soap the walls prior to painting to remove dust
