Painting FAQ'S

We answer your most frequently asked questions...

Q: Can water-based paints be applied over surfaces previously painted with solvent based paint?

A: Yes, but the surfaces must be rubbed down and cleaned to ensure good adhesion, failure to do this will result in the coatings being vulnerable to impact damage.

Q: Why am I having difficulty applying emulsion paint to new plaster walls?

A: New plaster is highly porous and absorbs the paint very quickly therefore causing it to dry rapidly. To ease application and quench the absorbency always thin the first coat down with clean water by up to 10%

Q: What has caused the emulsion paint I have applied to my kitchen walls to split and crack?

A: It is highly likely that surface contaminants are causing the problem. The walls should have been washed down to remove all traces of contamination such as grease and dirt.
