What should I use to clean surfaces that will be painted?
Use a non-abrasive grease and oil cutting cleaner like Selleys Sugar Soap. Clean the surface at least twice with clean water and Sugar Soap each time. Clean until the cleaning water and Sugar Soap remain clean.
Do not use abrasive cleaning compounds. Abrasive scouring pads should be used when cleaning before painting.
Can I use Renovation Range outside?
Interior only product. We designed the paints using Acrylic Resins so that the product can resist yellowing and fading in direct sunlight through a window. However, they are not designed for exterior use.
What is the coverage of Renovation Range products?
All of the products have been designed to deliver 12m2/L per coat.
To establish the amount of paint you require follow the calculation below.
1: Work out the total area that you wish to coat.
2: Multiply by 2 for the number of coats required.
3: Divide by 12 to establish litres required.
4: Multiply the litres by 1.3 to allow enough for 30% excess to allow for waste, roller and brush loading and retention in the can and roller tray.
Where figures are less than full litres round up to full litres.
e.g for a 10m2 of surface. 10 X 2 = 20 20/12 = 1.67 1.67 X 1.3 = 2.17
Round up to 3 litres.
Can Renovation Range be applied to glazed terracotta tiles?
