I've been using Leyland Acrylic undercoat and gloss for my doors , skirting and architrave, however it doesn't seem to matter what caulk I use it always ends up cracking.

I've been looking at different forums including this one and have found several other caulks I can try, however since I've already caulked and undercoated I was wondering what would be the best Gloss paint to finish it off.

So far so good, I painted over the cracks with Zinsser 1 2 3 and so far there are no cracks :) although you can see where the cracks were.


Can i ask what you would use for the finishing coat ? Was thinking Dulux Trade Diamond Quick-Drying Eggshell Paint, as said earlier I normally use Leyland water based gloss.

Sorry, missed this. Can't fault diamond eggshell tbh, million times better quality than the Leyland mush
