Can anyone tell me how I can fix moisture damaged chipboard? I have a wall unit, some of the base of which has expanded (it's in a dry area - the cat sprayed on it!!!). Pictures attached.
I'm tossing up between a wood glue or builder's bog.
Any steps to take would be helpful too - e.g. do I need to sand back first? do I need to put something heavy on it to ensure once the glue/bog is put on it sets level?
I want to be able to paint over it afterwards too.
Any help would be great

In short, you can’t. Because it is made under pressure in a factory situation, once MDF chipboard expands it looses integrity and replacement of that board is the only option. Can the wall unit be dismantled? BTW, the cat needs to be neutered.

Ive had some advice that the texture is easy to do by pulling the trowel away from the wall. I just dont know what type of plaster or render I need. Any ideas?

If the townhouses are strata title, then bodycorp should be the ones arranging repair / replacement. If Torrens title, 50/50 split with neighbour.
