We have just painted an old weatherboard home. After completely removing previous paint we sanded & sealed with this product. We can not recommend it enough.- it has sealed well, which we need against Taasie winters. The old wooden windows are really good - its self leveling ability was best noted with them. The only negative was that it is hard work to apply due to its consistency.
- Verified purchase
If it was possible to give a lower score I would
- Does not seal treated timber at all.
- Dulux do not provide a suitable spec sheet or list of known issues on their website
- Completely ruined the possibility of getting our pergola built for Christmas / Christmas plans ruined.
Purchased this "sealer" to use on treated timber which was being used on my pergola.
Originally we used the acrylic version as we were told this would be fine from both Bunnings and a Dulux rep.
Timber was purchased along with the sealer and taken home. Timber was prepped as we have with a number of other projects an...

Can I use 1 step prep undercoat to paint over existing exterior stain timber wall paneling and finished with 2 coats weathershield low sheen?

I purchased Dulux Prepcoat 1 step Primer, Sealer and undercoat, oil based. The brush was dragging so I thinned the paint after about 5 mins it started again so thinned again. I used a brush yesterday and got very bad brush marks. So today I used a paint pad with the result that many of the little hairs have come out. I have stopped painting my outside door as I have given up and will wait for it to dry and sand it all off. I started painting at 7 am in case it was too hot yesterday only to have an even worse result today.
Is this product extremely heat sensitive i.e. is it better to use it in the winter, by the way I live in Hobart Tasmania so what I call hot is the coolest in Australia.
I have a very large tin of the other 1 step Primer, sealer and undercoat that is water based, will I have the same problems with it, is it also very heat sensitive?
