    I have a house of windows to paint, a stone listed cottage. These have to be white and have previously been painted in white gloss, they just need freshening up.

    The customer has requested a satin finish, i was wondering which product to use. I prefer oil based paints, and have used WeatherShield Gloss on previous projects, but never the satin which seems to be waterbased.

    Any recommendations which way to go? I think ill be fine with one good coat there are 20 windows and 2 doors to do so I would like to try do it in one go. Is this wise for durability?

    Is there an oil based satin one coat product? Any tips?

    Thanks

    Russel

    Providing your existing glosswork is in good condition using a mild detergent sand with 400 grit wet wipe off and allow to dry, then give it one coat of Crown Solo available in both gloss and Satin.

    I don't understand how people that know nothing about painting can class themselves as professionals. :rolleyes:

    Tell me Joe what makes you such an objectionable person, do you in anyway have some sort of disease or habit that in some way affects you or is it simply that you get a kick out of being disliked.

    I object to complete numpties passing themselves off as professionals. I guess you disagree eh?

    Ive been self employed for 5 years, after 2 years as an apprentice. I have plenty of experience and am fully booked every week. I work for myself and by myself, and enjoy decorating. I dont advertise, all my work is word of mouth or repeat custom.

    I havent used many other products other than WeatherShield on exteriors as most of work is indoors at my choosing. I prefer wallpapering and other such work rather than exterior work where weather plays a part.

    I class myself as professional in my application and approach, just because i havent experience of exterior satins doesnt make me any less professional than yourself.
