Plastering Question

How are walls ment to look fter being replastered

i have just had plastering done in my flat, but not happy with the results as there are marks and digs on the walls and cellings .
is it worth me trying to put polycell smooth over as i would like to make the walls look like new, or could you suggest anything that would make it finish of smooth

Hi hussain cant you get the plasterer back to do the job properly you should not have to make good new plastering.

Hi there
If you can not get the plasterer back give all the rough areas a sand down, then the best bet would be to paint over the areas in mist coat and possibly second coat then see what you have then start your filling gyproc easy fill is good,but all this should be done by the plasterer or a reskim but if he can not do it right the first time then i can not see him improving .
