Confused!

published

Renovating our house and have used the standard bp ceiling paint, 2 coats, in bedrooms and hallways with a fantastic result. Thought I would try the timesaver paint and prime for lounge and kitchen ceilings ,(maybe get away with one coat) did all the right prep works and after 2 coats the finish is terribly patchy. Don’t understand why!

Purchased in January 2021 at Sydney Wide Chiropractic for $136.00.

Misleading surface coverage.

published

I had a 38 square meter area to paint of raw plasterboard. The label advised of 10 square meters per litre and it was good to use on unpainted plasterboard. So I bought a 4 litre tin thinking I would cover at least one coat and cornice. I was only able to cover about 30 square meters. Product was to thick and hard to apply with a roller compared to other ceiling paints. For me any of these dual purpose ceiling paints are a waste of money.

Too thick to use

published

Waste of time. Too thick to stir and roller wouldn’t absorb it. Wasted time and expense. Bunnings refunded paint but lost money on roller and paint tray. Have used dulux paint without difficulties. This is the third time I have tried a brutish paint product. All have been disappointing. Will stick with dulux

Terrible mess

published

Paint and Prime ceiling paint. We have spent a substantial amount of money on 2 x 10ltr cans of this paint. We have just spent $1000's on having our ceilings rescrewed and plastered. Fantastic job. Then to paint. What a mess. The paint is too thick. The build up on the roller makes it almost impossible to use. We now have ceilings that are patchy and thick roller marks everywhere. The cornices have had 2 coats and their still patchy. I think we will have to sand it all back and start all over again with a different ceiling paint. Any advice would be really appreciated. The time and money ( paid a friend to help paint)spent on this is crazy)

Hi David
Thank you for reaching out, yes you can coat Versilux with British Paints Ceiling Paint & Prime Flat. Please ensure the surface is clean and dry prior to any application. If there is any water stains or marks you are best coated with a stain blocker such as Dulux Precision Advance Stain & Odour Blocker. Please also keep in mind that painting over this surface may block the tiny acoustic holes on the surface and compromise its acoustic properties. If you have any further questions please contact Help & Advice team on 132525. Our operating hours are Monday to Friday 7:30am to 7:00pm, Saturday 8:30am to 3:00pm and Sunday 10am to 4pm AEST.
