Your top 5 paint questions answered. REPAINTINGQ My wife and I have just bought a house and the previous owner painted the inside with enamel.

PLASTERING AND PAINTINGQ I have just erected new boundary walls that have been plastered. Now they need painting.

What would be the best way to remove it A If the paint is relatively fresh, rub it off using mutton cloth soaked in lacquer thinners. If its been quite a while since you painted, use Plascon Removall All Purpose Paint Remover RRA 2. Apply a thick coat over the paint and allow two hours to react, then scrape it off and wash with water. TILE OR PAINT FIRSTQ Weve finally saved up enough money to give our kitchen a much needed makeover. Now were wondering what to do first tile or paint A Our advice would be to tile first and allow the tile cement and grout to cure completely before covering the tiles with dropsheets and masking tape and painting the walls. It would be much easier to cover a floor when painting than to cover walls while doing the tile work. Have your home repairs gotten the better of you Email advicekansaiplascon.
