Help needed please!
I am redecorating my hallway. The skirting boards and doors will be painted in Little Greene Flat Oil Eggshell.
The last paint I used on it was Sanderson spectrum oil eggshell paint which has been fantastic for wearability etc. The paintwork is in excellent condition having been completely stripped last time. I've now lightly sanded to provide a key but am unsure if I need to use an undercoat and if so which one to use?
A different problem is that we are also having new doors - these are already primed and undercoated - will I have to re-undercoat them before painting because I will not know which undercoat they have used? :scratch: I'm grateful for any advice please.

You should be OK to apply the oil eggshell directly over the existing paint on the skirtings.

The doors should be OK too if primed and undercoated.

If they are the "eggbox" type of doors that come pre primed though, I'd normally give them an undercoat just as a solid base for the finish coats.
