Prestonett Multi-Purpose Filler Review

Posted Dec 1, 2022 | Product Reviews, Sundries | 3 comments

I’ve been a professional decorator for over 20 years, and for the past decade, I’ve used Gyproc EasiFill for any work on interior walls and ceilings. That’s until a few weeks ago, when a friend of mine suggested I try the Prestonett filler from PaintWell. Now I’ve had chance to use the product on a few jobs, I thought I’d sit down and write an honest Prestonett multi-purpose filler review.

Prestonett multi-purpose is an interior powder filler for use on plastered walls and ceilings, as well as surface blemishes on woodwork. You can also use it as a coving adhesive, or to patch larger areas of plaster.

You simply mix the powder with water until you get the correct consistency, then you’re good to go. The working time is 60 minutes, and you can use it in holes up to 5cm deep (although you will extend the drying time).

 

My Prestonett Multi-Purpose Filler Review

 

Let’s talk about price first. Prestonett Multi-Purpose is around the same price bracket as similar fillers products including EasiFill, and Toupret. There isn’t a massive difference in price between any of them.

On to the performance, and I can tell you this is the Maserati of fillers! I always thought EasiFil was the holy grail, but it’s like chalk and cheese. Prestonett Multi-Purpose is easier to mix, and you can achieve a smoother and creamier consistency. This makes it easier to spread too!! Shallow repairs dry very fast, so your prep time is reduced. Deeper holes take a bit longer though.

Prestonett Multi-Purpose is also easier to feather out and easier to sand. It’s just a nice filler to work with. So, in conclusion I’ll be swapping the EasiFill for this in future as I believe it’s a far superior product.

Prestonett do several other fillers, they’re all on my list to dry! Click here for more info.

    Very underrated brand prestonett, very similar to Toupret in quality. Don’t be scared to try it doesn’t flash through paint either and says this on the packet unlike easyfill.

    I’ve used both Easifill and Toupret. I prefer the Toupret but it does have a tendency to be lumpy. Does the Prestonett mix smoothly?

    I like the Toupret fillers but some of them say to leave 12-24 before painting, which is obviously not ideal when you need to crack on.

    That said, at least it is stated on the packaging. I can’t find this information for Prestonett; it’s not even in the data sheet 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Anyone know?
