    Chased walls need filling 14th Sep 18 at 9:53 AM
    I have had some electrical work done in my house where the walls have been chased. The electrician part filled the chases but I would like to finish them of myself without calling on a plasterer.

    I am going to place an order soon from Screwfix for lights etc so am thinking of getting something from there, can anyone recommend a product which is easy to use and sand down?

    Easi fill.

    The results will completely depend on your ability to get a nice finish though.

    If you leave the filler proud and sand back to the wall level, it's easy to get a good level result.

    I second Easi-fill as well but don't leave proud as it is a sod to rub down when applied thick,just fill tight to the chase then anoter thin fill over the top
