Dulux Weathershield Aquatech opaque and Zinsser Coverstain partnership.
A nice project I was asked to complete last summer. It had been previously painted with oil wood stain. The spec from the customer was they wanted a satin finish and would like to be able to close the windows each night without the risk of window stick in the process of re decoration.
The answer was to apply a waterbased finish. Thats the top coat dealt with but what about the primer? The previous decorator had used an oil based stain and I wanted a waterbased topcoat. If I applied straight on top of the oil it would leave the substrate in a really bad state as it will start peeling, something we dont want. A primer was needed and a good one! So i went for the ever faithful Zinsser Coverstain. This primer sticks to near enough anything, has a good opacity plus the added bonus of being over coated in 2 hours, quite unreal really for an oil based product.
The Gable end of the property needed some repairs to the boards, that was not a problem to get repaired or replaced.
Once replaced and repaired Zinsser Coverstain was used as the primer and then screw holes filled and sealed with filler. Another coverstain on top of the filler and then ready for the topcoats.
The property was finished off with two coats of Dulux Weather shield Aquatech and the walls were completed with two coats of Dulux Weathershield Masonry paint.
This project was again a pleasure to do. The transformation was amazing to see.
