    Hi all. Shower had a leak (now been fixed) which came through onto our living room ceiling and its left water stains in one corner. Problem is the ceiling is textured and the room is open plan to a kitchen/diner area so we don’t want to repaint the whole lot. What is the best way to get rid of the stain?

    Good afternoon. I’m going to be painting over plaster in my hall, stairs and landing. We want to keep the space light so we’re going with very pale blue paint. How many coats of paint will I need to cover the plaster? How long between coats of paint should I wait before the next?

    In the progess of getting the house done, full refurb. Do you think it is best to have treated wood skirtings and stair case or have them painted and a different colour on the wall to offset? House it rather modern but I do want it to age well!

    Hi - I am about to buy tile paint. I only need a small amount - I will buy Ronseal One Coat Tile Paint Satin Grey Slate. I need to buy a similar colour to paint an internal exposed RSJ steel beam - can I use this tile paint for that? Do I need to do any prep work other than cleaning?

    Asked by Nathan on 26th Mar 2020

    Hi, I've had lots of renovation work done and need to paint a load of internal walls. I’m just wondering if there's any particular paint brands that I should be using? There seems to be so many options and I don’t want to buy something with rubbish coverage. How many coats should i be expecting, including undercoat? Thanks

    Hi there, I fear I might have mould or mildew in my bedroom under a bay window. I have washed the walls twice now but it seems to be returning. Will an a mould killer do the job? I have debated sanding it over and painting/skimming the area but dont want to if it's going to return. Is there a special paint I can buy to go over it? How do i identify what it is exactly? Thanks in advance.

    Hi, I need to paint the new skirting boards and door frame in my living room. I'm not sure which paint to use. I know that the new wood will need undercoating but I just want to know what the best paint would be for a high-quality finish. I don't really like gloss painted wood so are there any other options? Should i be using oil-based or water-based paints? Thank you.
