Bad reviews.. but no idea if these people know how to paint.. 2 coats (and said it still needed 1 more, and 4 coats).. even normal cheap b&q paint is 1 coat if you know how to paint.
...it's all in the preparation...

That and using a decent roller sleeve.

B&Q value 9" skinny roller doesn't hold much paint and doesn't put what little it does hold on the wall very well .....

Open the tin/tub and fling the contents at the wall? X)

great deal
I take it this wouldn't be any good for floors?

Still a great deal though. Unfortunately I've just done the bedroom in magnolia as that was on offer at Asda, but would have preferred this.

I did buy some "anti mould additive" from eBay for a fiver though, so had a 5 litre tub of anti mould paint for £10. That stuff is really expensive if you buy it already with the additive in. Cleaned it all off with thin bleach then used my anti mould paint, looks so much better. Thought it was worth mentioning in case anyone has damp problems and wants a cheap solution.

probably best to also find the root cause! We once found that a little bit of guttering was mis-aligned - causing damp.


it cost £5 to repair the guttering and a hell of a lot more to treat the damp.
Great buy, Hot! none near me though!
most damp around window sill etc is caused by the condensation from just breathing at night, Thats why it's usually around the bedroom windows!
Best thing about this paint is I'm sure there is a satisfaction guarantee so if it doesn't cover in one coat ask for a refund!!! Personally I've got a trade card and use B+Q's trade counter for 10 litres of Leyland white. It's about £15 but it's very good paint, especially for new plaster work!
none in cardiff area
Chivas Regal

Simple solution. Stop breathing Yes, condensation is normally the root cause. Improving the ventilation so that the moisture laden air can escape is the easiest solution. If you do not want the window open at night then leave a gap when you go out in the morning so that the moisture can escape during the day.

Or fit a lofty - apparently the business, can cure the whole house! The Lofty Remcon Whole House Ventilation System - about £500 fitted i think. positive pressure ventilation.

Ha Ha Ha, if you knew how to paint you would not be using one coat paint! Ask any proffesional decorator, minimum of two coats!
Good price but none in my local stores.

No they wouldn't say that, they'd say, do it right and you only need 1 coat. Dunk your roller into the tub, put it on the wall and do 1 line per rolled, painted.
Lay it on thick, thats all you need. I'd much rather spend an extra £5 on paint than 5 hours painting.
Depends on alot of factors. best to get trade emulsion works well more expensive but you notice the difference.
Yeah one thick coat. Not the best quality however worth a fiver.(_;)
What's the paint that you can wipe clean called... is it emulsion ?
you need 20 coats
We used dulux one coat and as stated you need 2 coats (as the normal unprofessional user with a typical roller) ended up buying much more than expected at great cost. Got a 7.5l tub of crown magnolia matt 2 weeks ago at homebase for £10 and it was fab!
Great Deal. Heat added.....4 tins reserved for pickup!

this is amongst the worst paint i've ever used and i've been doing it 26 years now,no amount of prep is good enough for this paint. extra coats are needed than normal paint and i even went back to one job where you could actually peel the paint off in sheets.if i go to a job now and the customer is supplying b&q paint i walk away as it's not worth the hassle.
also if you read the instructions on almost all 1 coat paints it will say''apply second coat after x hours''.avoid

Good price for B&Q
none near me - shame.
Hot deal, thanks for sharing.
Does anyone remember the little tube of paint colouring you used to be able to get? Like concentrated to blue added to white to make what ever shad eyou wanted - can you get these anymore?
[quote=dean_brfc]I take it this wouldn't be any good for floors?

Would be ok with a couple of coats of varnish on top
Good deal voted hot. I've always found it decent paint tbh. Some of the colours are gash like, but you can't go wrong with neutrals.

great deal

yeh as people have said try and find the root cause - check roof tiles, guttering, water piping from baths/showers - is the bedroom above the kitchen - also whats above the bedroom - if its just around the windows - then its probably just normal condensation and lack of ventilation - remove all water sources like cups of water left at night and after showers and baths - leave windows open for a little while and wipe down surfaces before you leave the bathroom

heard Lofty is rubbish as there are better systems out there
Your better off using Leyland Trade paint from Screwfix thats always on offer one time to the next, usually around £14 for 10l so is near to this B&Q paint VFM wise.

Its good opacity, stinks a bit, but it goes far and gives good results.

Rubbish, on bare plaster, maybe if you're lucky on anything painted that's just pure nonsense. You'd spend more time doing 1 coat then wizzing round doing 2 and 2 would be a better finish in any case.
