Can a dam­aged bath­room wash­basin be re­paired?

Glossop Advertiser - - Home Advice -

CAN you rec­om­mend a good qual­ity in­door filler? Re­cently I used one on some walls but it came off like pow­der when I sanded it.

Neil Cald­well Use Bri­tish Gyp­sum Easi-Fill. It comes with dif­fer­ent set­ting times, from 20 to 60 min­utes.

A YEAR ago I re­paired a crack in my Ar­texed lounge ceil­ing by re­mov­ing the coat­ing, tap­ing the joint with por­ous, self-ad­he­sive

tape and then reap­ply­ing the Ar­tex. A bub­ble has now ap­peared.

UN­DER the crack there will be a pa­per tape that cov­ers the joint be­tween the plas­ter­board sheets. Cut out the bub­ble along the full length, re­move the old tape, then ap­ply the self-ad­he­sive tape and re­pair.

I HAVE a two-inch jagged hair­line crack in my ceramic bath­room wash­basin. Can it be re­paired? R Wood

A crack means there’s a fault and it’s likely to get big­ger if the basin is knocked. You could get a DIY kit, but I’d re­place the basin.
