 Post subject: Painting outside of house
PostPosted: Wed Oct 18, 2017 8:40 am 
One of my next jobs on the old Council house is to paint the outside white to give it that clean look.
However I have noticed that all four houses are cream coloured which I thought was strange considering they are all private.
Now I am wondering if there is some rule saying they can only be painted cream.

How could I find out if there is any ruling ?

PostPosted: Wed Oct 18, 2017 3:46 am 
Hi Guys,

I was reading the old post regarding the situation with oil based and yellowing, i am aware it was an EU ruling and out of the control of paint manufacturers, i have tried a few different water based glosses now and am not amused no matter what you do it turns out pants never mind the 3 tins minimum instead of 1 of the good stuff, water based its useless apart from being ...

 Post subject: Sikkens Rubbol BL Satura Satin black
PostPosted: Tue Oct 17, 2017 3:26 pm 
I have recently done some Painting / repainting in my house using BL Satura white and been very impressed with the levelling, finish and durability. I now have some exterior woodwork /trims that I was hoping to paint satin black but don't think it is available in sating black. Does anyone know of a hybrid water based paint similar to BL Satura that is available in Satin Black?
If no advanced hybrid is available in ...

 Post subject: Benjamin Moore question
PostPosted: Mon Oct 16, 2017 5:53 pm 
I've got a feature wall to paint and customer has chosen Benjamin Moore.

We're looking at a matt finish, but I see they do a Matte and flat finish.

Is there a great difference between the two?

 Post subject: Best mini roller sleeves for BIN
PostPosted: Mon Oct 16, 2017 11:11 am 
I have a lot of flat panels to turn white from pine and I wondered what the best min rollers are. When I have used gloss rollers, the foam type, the solvent tends to break the foam up after a short while and these leaves debris on the finish. Has anyone found the best type of roller to use please ??

Many thanks

DWD

 Post subject: Painting a caulked skirting seems impossible, I have no line
PostPosted: Sat Oct 14, 2017 4:47 pm 
I have been trying to caulk and paint skirting boards in my house but I seem to have a massive problem.

If you cut in to the ceiling, you have a ceiling line to cut up to. The same when you're cutting into architraves from the wall, you have a line.

When you caulk the top of skirting boards you do not have a line, you have a small curved surface (usually left by the ...

 Post subject: Emojis on this forum.
PostPosted: Sat Oct 14, 2017 11:20 am 
Many times I've tried to post emojis on here from my phone, and some will work others won't ,

It only seems to be a problem with this particular group and not the other tapatalk ones I use.

Is this something admin could look into?

Thanks in advance.

 Post subject: Apprentices
PostPosted: Sat Oct 14, 2017 6:44 am 
Has the apprenticeship slipped of late, or is the trade just getting the dregs of school-leavers and general quarter-brains?

Been doing a large house, where there is a multi-trade firm on board. I'm deccing the house, bar the kitchen, which the firms decorators are covering. All well and good, as they are a couple of nice lads and an apprentice. But...............

The apprentice is in year 3 of his SVQ level 3, which is 'almost ...

 Post subject: Mdf letters painting with emulsion
PostPosted: Fri Oct 13, 2017 11:55 pm 
Hi. Really hoping someone could give me a quick solution to this!

I bought some mdf letters to go on the wall in my sons bedroom and wanted to paint them with some left over emulsion that was used for one wall in his room. Rushing a bit, not researching enough and trying to use what I already had in the garage, led me to use 2 coats of pva, sanding in between coats, to ...
