Hi All,

I have been scraping off some loose paint and sanding down some rough areas on an old sash window, so that I can apply a coat of primer for an entire re-paint.

My question is: on the whole, most of the current paint is not flaky and does not come off (and it doesn't really need to either) so do I simply paint over these bits with primer as well i.e. simply paint the whole thing evenly with primer?

Thanks in advance,

Jim

Just spot prime the bare areas, then apply your undercoat and gloss as normal.

OK that sounds easy and makes sense. Many thanks for the tip. However...for the areas which are still painted from before, I am now avoiding using primer but do I start again on top of this paint with undercoat or just the final paint layer?

Undercoat over old paint[*]. And old paint must be sanded even if it does not appear to be flaking, i.e. do not sand down just the flaking areas. Once you sand down the whole window you may have a better idea of what is flaking and what not.
