This is a question I received from a home decorator who is clearly trying to do things right, not happy to slap a quick coat over the walls, but is getting in a bit of trouble.
I’m hoping you might be able to advise what I can do with regard to my internal walls.
We have recently moved into a relatively new house. The internal walls are plasterboard with the original paint the house was completed with. The walls have been finished with a tape and joint
finish and the paint finish is very smooth.
We have tried to re-paint a wall with very little success. Firstly we gave the wall a good sand down, removed all the dust etc and applied a mist coat over.
We then sanded the walls again and gave the walls 2 costs of Dulux Flat Matt.
The finish is rough to the touch and the paint does seem to dry out quickly when applying it with a roller. Is there something we can do to stop this happening?
