Use of easi fill
Can easi fill gypsum be used directly onto plasterboard instead of a proper skim coat?
My builder has ‘dot and dabbed’ plasterboard onto my brick wall, and instead of skimming it, has used easi fill with the intention of sanding it down as a finished result before painting
Will this be as strong as a proper skim? Will it crack?
It is about 1.5m x 2m in size
As you can imagine it won't be as strong without the layer of skim, it's just quicker and cheaper. It won't crack. It's a common finish on new builds these days.

You need to Plaster it's mutch better
Using easifill is fine on new plasterboard works as long as a paper tape or fiberglass tape is used on the joints. Three coats of easi fill should be used each coat applied after the previous coat has set.Personally i think skimming is a better job
