    I have a problem in a bathroom where over the years several fixings have been attached to the walls and as such the plasterboard has numerous "old" holes in it. These have all been suitably filled, but finding a suitable firm piece of board to attach new fittings too is not possible.

    I am thinking about cutting a section of the plasterboard out and replacing with new and then re skimming it - is this the best way to go ? or is the a better way of handling this ?

    Thanks

    You could overboard the whole lot.

    Ideally, if you need fixings , you want some ply in there.

    Two options,

    1 cut out the board where you need fixings, fit ply, over board and skim the lot

    2 Put ply on top of existing, board over that and skim.

    Depends on which you think is easier and how far out you can afford to bring out the wall
