Great paint - make sure heavy handed
I had read some reviews on this paint before using and must admit had reservations. So I called Taubmans Tech Dept before starting. Was advised to use more paint when rolling which would give better coverage.. it worked
Taubmans endure one coat ceiling paint
After 3 coats I rang Bunnings who offered to replace the paint,I also rang my painter friend and he stopped by and had a look and had no answers as to why it had ended up patchy other than to suggest I use a Bristol paint which he highly recommended so I’m About to apply a 4th coat of so called one coat endure ceiling paint.
Went back to Bunnings yesterday and had remainder of 10 litre drum replaced with same paint but from a different batch.
Bunnings would not replace it with dulux product as I was prepared the difference in costs as it would ...
Purchased in April 2019 at Bunnings.
Not a 1 coat paint
I dont believe there is such a thing as a 1-coat ceiling paint if you are painting over yellowed, unsealed ceiling, (unless you use a spray gun). Existing ceiling surface is usually unsealed gyprock + ceiling paint and is extremely absorbant, so you need a LOT of paint (around half the coverage on the can) to get complete coverage. Plus, the borders of the patches you paint with each roller load must be feathered to avoid obvous strips, so even if you overlap well, you will always have areas of incomplete coverage. Next time I will start with a less expensive sealer/undercoat, then possibly Ill manage to cover with 1 coat of a paint like this.
Is not a one coat paint
Taubmans Endure is usually an excellent product so I was surprisingly disappointed with the "one coat" claim. It covers well, but two coats minimum are needed for perfect coverage. Taubmans would do well to remove the "one coat" label and stick with "ceiling paint". Misleading claims may result in consumers questioning their other products.
This is not cheap paint, however it performs like the cheaper ones.
I thought I would buy a quality paint to save this time and effort.
Coverage was Ok at best, I have had similar results with cheaper no name brands so why pay more.
Would not recommend this product purely on its price.
Good product in right hands
Many people tend to apply ceiling paint too thin and use cheap rollers, plus it is tricky to see the coverage when painting on white. Just finished our house. This paint is a beautiful bright white and gives a quality even finish. Best of all easy to use and almost no spatters!
Don't even look at it, wish I could give it zero
Absolutely terrible ceiling paint. After 3 coats on some areas still needed more, decided to scrap it and by some haymes paint. Should have read the reviews earlier and bought it to start with. So so far superior and actually a bit cheaper. Do not buy the taubmans- go straight to the haymes!
The one coat ceiling paint is awfully smelling especially when used after storing it
Do not use it after storing it do not know how to get it off it would like more opinion on this advice urgently, solution needed reason for the smell ? Any body used this paint
Ways to get rid of the smell please
May be the paint was old a caution to say old paints should not be used should be there
