    How do you deal with rain spotting on the surface of a wall?

    What is the best waterproof paint to use for external woodwork on seaside properties?

    Asked by Marian on 8th Apr 2021

    Hello, I am currently redecorating my room. There has been a persistent mould problem which has been looked at. We are planning on installing a ventilation system. Mould occurs on the exterior walls particularly around the window. I know I want to use Dulux. My plan was to use the bathroom paint, but I am wondering if the Easycare washable paint will suffice? There is little price difference between them so I was wondering what is the most suitable for a bedroom like mine? The only downside for the bathroom paint for me is that they don't come in a matt formula this however is not the end of the world! Any advice much appreciated! Thanks!

    There’s mould growing on paint on the exterior of my house. What can I do about this? How can I fix it? How long might it take to sort it out? And what products/treatments do you recommend not only to remove the current mould but to prevent fuutre mould growing? Thanks.

    There’s been a loss of gloss from painted surfaces in my home. How can this be fixed? Will it need a new gloss treatment that is better than the latter? What other products might I need to use?

    Have any experienced painters had to remove lead paint before? Is it dangerous to do yourself? Is it better/safer/cheaper to remove it from timer door and bay window frames or remove and replace them with MDF?

    Asked by Mischa on 15th Feb 2021

    Is there a paint type primer or something I can paint older plaster to help hide minor imperfections (I’ll fill/sand and smooth as much as I can first) before painting a dark paint colour? I don’t want to use lining paper. Cheers 👍🏻
