After reading reviews on Polycell smoothover for damaged walls, i wasnt sure weather it would be worth the hassle, however whilst we are gutting our house and the majority of the walls have been skimmed, it is very immportant to try and save money wherever we could. There was one large wall which followed the stairs, which we didnt want to knock off, so we thought instead of spending £200 on skimming, we would give it a go. Im, not going to say it was really easy, but as long as you spend time on mixing the product properly there was no issue of it not sticking to the roller. It stayed workable for a few attempts whilst you get used to it which is a possitive. I managed to do the whole wall, it didnt leave a perfect finish, however i just went over a few areas with the product and a spatula to fill any small gaps. Finally i went over the whole wall with an orbital and a fine grade sandpaper, this may seem a bit excessive to some people, but i wanted a really good finish. Overall it works well and does what it says so £30 and a bit of work as apposed to £200 is a good saving in my opinion.
