Hi People,

I have a room with a bay window where the walls have been painted with oil based paint. There are numerous cracks like under the window collection and near the window. Pictures attached. What is the best way of sorting out the cracks especially the one next to the window which is rosewood upvc which I been told will expand more than white upvc.

Thanks Ray

Hi Ray,

It is unlikely but not impossible that you have oil based paint on your walls. Whatever the paint, it does not explain the cracks which you seem to think are caused by the window. Did you forget the photos?
