Gyproc EasiFill 20 has a working time of 20 minutes and the second coat can be applied after 40 minutes. Gyproc EasiFill 45 has a working time of 45 minutes and the second coat can be applied after 80 minutes. Some plaster products shouldn’t be applied to a depth of more the 12mm in one go. If this is the case, you may need to make two or more applications Apply the filler by working it into the holes of the patch and towards the edge. Feather out at least 50mm beyond the edges of the patch to create a smooth, seamless finish. Leave to set for a minimum 30 minutes.

Now you will need a piece of plasterboard to fill the hole. Ideally this needs to be thinner than the current plasterboard. Measure and cut to fill the hole. Fix in place against the noggins with plasterboard screws or nails. When working with plaster, it's best to only work with small amounts on the hawk and trowel. Try to build up a rhythm so you can cover the patch repair before the plaster starts to set Caulk can’t really be sanded down so you need to get it as smooth as possible. For any larger holes you are much better served by a more suitable filler. How Do You Fill Screw Holes In Plasterboard? Once the first coat has set if you find any ridges, lumps, bumps or trowel marks, gently scrape these away using the edge of your filling knife, or leave to fully dry before sanding.Read on to find out how to repair holes in plasterboard with the Gyproc EasiPatch Plasterboard Patch.

Once dry, you can gently rub down the plaster or filler, and then paint the repaired area to match the surrounding wall. How to Fill Large Holes in Plasterboard Measure and cut a new piece of plasterboard to fill the hole. Fix in place with plasterboard screws or nails. Mix up plaster, apply and leave to dry. Yes you can use decorators' caulk to fill small holes such as nail and screw holes, but it's not really suitable for holes any bigger than quarter of an inch. Add a dollop of caulk and smooth out with a putty knife or a wet finger for nail and screw holes.Depending on the shape of the hole, whether its circular or has jagged edges you may need to use a padsaw, jabsaw or hobby knife.

Picture the scenario. You have a job list as long as your arm, but you’re seeking efficient solutions for your customers, saving you time but not cutting corners.Another complication that springs to light when you have unfortunately made a hole in a plasterboard wall or hollow door is the void behind it due to the construction of the stud work used to hold the plasterboard up or provide the framework for the door meaning that you can’t just use filler as there is nothing to bond it to. Add as much filler as you need to until the hole is filled flush with the surface of the wall. Use the trowel to get the surface as flat as possible. Once the patch is dry and firmly in position, gently remove the screw. Use patching plaster, all purpose filler or multi-finish plaster — mix up enough to cover the patch and gently press into the hole and spread with a putty knife that is larger than the hole to help get a smooth finish.
