    "There are no products called semi-gloss paint only satin-gloss or eggshell for woodwork only IE skirt doors
    I wouldn't advise using water-based gloss as sometimes it can peel off if you catch it. And some oil-based gloss can yellow over the years I would recommend oil-based satin over an undercoat"

    "gloss or satinwood, if you have an uneven surface satinwood would hide most blemishes"

    "Gloss is very much a peoples thing ,you either like it or dont ,customers ate moving towards satinwood now as it has a nice shine to it and is washable without it having the bright shinning of the gloss in your face ,also if a cheep gloss is used and not on undercoat it tends to go yellow very quickley"
