We are not in a conservation area, but we would be keen to find something which (at least from street level) looks similar to our wooden casements.
Pine not - thanks for the reply. We would love to go with wood, but we are being quoted £3500 upwards for just 2 windows which we are struggling...
Can anyone tell me if all windows can be fitted from the inside please? We want to replace out single-pane wooden windows but live on the third floor and want to avoid paying for scaffolding if at all possible.
If it helps, we live in a victorian conversion and the external...
All good advice, thank you.
I am leaning towards a full oil-based system, finishing with Johnstone's Flat Oil. The areas I am painting will not get any direct sunlight, so I am hoping this reduces the chance of premature yellowing.
Cheers Pigeo85, we have lived without a panel on the bath for about 6 months and I haven't seen any water leave the bath or shower in that time so I figure the risk is small.
Thank you all for you help.
Ahh, missed the "crazing" comment. My mistake, sorry.
I am surprised that there isn't a solution which is both reasonably water resistant and with a matt finish (oil-based matts tend to be more 'satin').
I have some Johnstone's Trade Acrylic Durable Matt to use up. The back of the tin says I should water it down to seal absorbent surfaces, but it also says to use a primer on bare timber.
I am not sure whether either of these methods is best to protect MR MDF though.
