    Hi guys,

    I've removed some old skirting in my 1930s semi and there will now be a gap between the new lower height skirting and wall, which I intend to get a pro in to skim.

    I've PVA'd the engineered brick and added a couple of coats of bonding plaster (not fully dried and PVA between coats) in order to get the level somewhere near that of the rest of the wall for skimming. However this is fairly thick, probably will end up somewhere near 50mm in places.

    I'm worried this will crack like mad and then ruin any finish later applied. As I've only done this in a small, am I better to change my approach - maybe sand/cement then bonding or dot and dab board and fill gaps with bonding.

    Any advice really appreciated, and hopefully I've not got to get the hammer to it and start again!

    :oops:

    It will be fine as long as you build it up in layers and let it go off.
