  • Commonly Asked Questions...

    Do I always need an acrylic sealer undercoat on bare plasterboard?

    Answer: It is strongly recommended that a wallboard sealer (or sealer undercoat) is applied as it provides a uniform surface for subsequent coats, and contributes to colour and sheen uniformity in the finish.

  • Commonly Asked Questions...

    What clear coating can I put on my timber bench tops?

    Answer: Generally, a two-pack polyurethane, or a single pack moisture curing polyurethane gives the best overall protection. Haymes Easy Floor Gloss is also an excellent product to use.

  • Commonly Asked Questions...

    How can I stain my timber floorboards?

    Answer: Using a stain directly onto the timber is not generally recommended for two reasons. Firstly, it is very hard to achieve an even finish on such a large flat area. Secondly, if the floor coating wears through and into the colour, it is almost impossible to touch up the stain without having to sand completely back to raw timber. To avoid these problems, it is best to add a small amount of dye/spirit-based stain into the first one or two coats of a solvent based clear. Always finish off with a clear coat so that when the floor wears or gets scratched, you are only affecting the clear coating.
