Hi, have a customer’s shed to paint and need some advice on coatings. It’s currently bare wood, but a bit humid inside as you can see from the ceiling joists. So I need a system to keep that at bay. Customer has stressed that finish doesn’t need to be spectacular, he’s not bothered about having the wood sanded, for example, but he would like it to last! He also would like it in Pottere Clay 2 or nearest (a light Dulux grey, but not stuck on Dulux).
The floor is another issue. He would like it “varnished” in a dark colour (he mentioned mahogany, to hide the marks). Heaviest thing he has in there is lawnmower, but also kids bikes and general storage. To my thinking, it’s better to go a bit overboard on durability just so he’s not calling me in 12 months time saying it’s coming off. Again, bare wood that just needs a clean and light sand.
