    I've just had new skirting boards fitted and need to fill the screw holes. Is this the best stuff to use?
    My only concern is that it sets like concrete and therefore difficult to sand.

    It will do especially as it seems you already have it. You can pare it down with a chisel whilst it's setting and that will reduce the sanding required.

    Edit: If you've had the boards fitted, why didn't the installer fill the holes?

    Use the 2 part but use a french blade so it is slightly recessed, when it's gone off go over with lightweight filler then lightly sand.

    It will do the job, don't over fill, fill the holes flush and if required finish off with a second fill once cured.

    Done window boards with this before then tupret fine surface on top. Invisible...till 18 months later. Avoid screws in window boards at all costs now.
    Anyway, sure you will be fine with this

    He is due to come back so will chase him to fill, but wasnt too sure whether that normally falls under his remit, or was up to me to do.

    Wether it is the chippies job or the painters job is an ongoing argument, I foam my skirtings on so don't have this problem.
