Choosing a filler

Fillers are available for a variety of uses, both indoors and outdoors, no matter the size of the job. When selecting a filler, you need to consider setting time, ease of use and quality of finish. The following guide will help you choose.

Interior filler

Suitable for repairing small cracks or holes in plaster, wood or masonry, an interior filler gives a smooth surface which can be painted and is strong enough to take screws and nails. Available in powder or ready mixed forms, these fine surface fillers produce a faster setting, smoother finish, ideal for minor cracks and blemishes.

Exterior filler

Tough, weather-resistant fillers will resist shrinking and cracking. Designed for repairing holes or cracks in external concrete, cement, brickwork or woodwork, they can be applied to doors, window frames, walls, steps and patios.

Lightweight filler

Lightweight, ready mix filler can be used to fill larger holes and cracks in internal walls and ceilings. Highly adhesive and easy to spread, it can be applied up to 50mm (2 inches) deep in a single layer, without risk of sagging or cracking when set.

All purpose filler

More expensive but more versatile than single use types, all purpose filler can be used on cracks and holes in plaster, wood, masonry and other materials, drying to produce a tough, slightly flexible surface. Some are designed for external as well as internal use. Comes in powder or paste form.

Metal filler

Fast setting polyester-based filler in two parts, which bond when combined. Available in rigid or flexible forms, these fillers are ideal for repairing cracks in metal, such as gutters and downpipes.

Wood filler

Available in ready mixed or two part forms, which set when combined, wood filler is flexible enough to cope with the natural expansion and contraction of wood without cracking. Some can be colour matched to different woods.

Frame sealant

Frame sealant is a flexible, non setting, rubbery paste ideal for gaps between masonry and woodwork where movement occurs eg between walls and door frames. Supplied in gun cartridges, it is ready for painting after four hours.

Foam filler

For deep cavities in most building materials, foam filler expands to around 60 times its original volume and moulds to fill the shape of the gap. Expensive but ideal for hard-to-fill areas such as round pipes through walls, and for sound and draft insulation. When dry it can be cut, sanded and painted.
