Tips & Advice
Preparing the Surfaces
To get the best results, ensure surfaces to be painted are sound, clean and dry (new surfaces particularly must be fully dry) and free from all defective or poorly adhering material such as dirt, grease and wax. New or bare surfaces should be primed with an appropriate Dulux primer. Thoroughly rub down previously painted surfaces, using ‘wet flatting’ methods where possible, then wipe off with a damp, lint free cloth. Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1960s paint surfaces over wood and metal as they may contain harmful lead. Treat any knots in wood with an appropriate knotting solution. Any surface defects should be filled with an appropriate Polycell Polyfilla
Do you know the area?

Great! Just add it below and find out how much you'll need.
Measure the height and length of the surface you want to paint (metres).
This is an estimate based on 1 coats. Actual coverage will depend on the conditions of the surface. If the colour change is strong, more coats may be required.Calculate again
