    "a satin finish is a modern finish and because it has a low shine, it hides uneven marks on the surface."

    "I use loads of Leyland Satinwood,good coverage and self undercoating saves time if paintwork in good condition.
    I assume pearl finish you mean eggshell?
    Not normally requested by my customers
    If bare wood primer undercoat needs to be used first"

    "A Satinwood finish is often requested by my customers due to it being longer lasting, more durable as opposed to a gloss finish."
