Right, quick one: did a quote yesterday, interior, customer’s woodwork is in good condition, but satin finish that’s just starting to turn.
He wants it doing, and I see my options as a) one coat of oil-based satin, or b) two coats of water-based, probably Dulux Diamond Satin which I am familiar with and use with Floetrol.
Thing is, there’s a lot of woodwork and I’d really like to do only one coat, as it’s not in bad nick and I’ll save my customer some money. Don’t think I’ll get away with just one Diamond Satin though.
Is there any other product I could use, or might I just be better off speccing for two Diamond Satin on the basis it will stay whiter twice as long as one of oil-based?
Also, all walls are painted white, quite flat but probably nothing special. I would normally use Dulux Vinyl Matt PBW, but just out of interest (and because it’s TP) should I be considering anything better? If so, please say why. I want to know what my money is going towards!
