    Hi there! I’d like to know a bit more about the various paint sheens that exist and which ones are best suited for painting a living room? Will the more expensive products be noticeably better or could I end up being ripped off?

    Hi, I have just bought a house although, in good condition, I don’t like the Artex ceiling in the house, so looking to create smooth Ceiling walls in the whole house. Can you suggest the best solution for it that does not cost too much? I am based in Feltham, West London

    On average, how long should I wait before I can be confident that plaster has dried? Is there a way to actually check to make certain that it’s dry?

    We are looking to render our house but have read multiple conflicting reviews regarding K-Rend. Originally chose polar white as we want a slightly off white but have been told it’s more cream/yellow? Anyone have a better recommendation as to colour?

    We have an apartment in a large, newly built apartment building. It is a monolithic structure with concrete block dividing walls. The block was covered in plaster and painted. We now have a crack in the plaster a few months later. Our contractor said to wallpaper because plaster walls could crack due to building settling as the apartments are all built out internally. We wanted paint though. The crack basically follows where a channel was carved into the plaster for wiring. It is not one clean crack, but rather a series of many hairline cracks that from a meter or two away looks like one crack. It seems there are many opinions on how to fix suck cracks. I do not understand the best way though. How should I repair it?

    Just had a gable end wall rendered with tyrolean leaving a very lumpy uneven finish with outlines of the blockwork showing through (ghosting I believe its called) . The original render was hacked off, then a very thin coat of a grey material was sprayed on to the blockwork before they started spraying on the tryolean, they also did not removed a wood burner flue just sprayed around existing render. Now after rainfall not only do we have the uneven finish but the area around the flue looks damp for days. Builder has offered to recover the wall due to poor finish but I am worried job was not done correctly in the first place - should there have been some form of render applied after the thin grey substance and before the tyrolean?
