Porous or rough surfaces will require additional paint for the first coat. Complicated mouldings and fittings will require extra paint. Surfaces being painted for the first time normall require a coat of sealer undercoat. Please remember to measure doors, windows, and other areas that may not be painted (width x height) and subtract the square metreage from the overall project. Quantity of paint is calculated at 14 sq metres for interior and exterior walls, and 12 sq metres for ceilings.
The recommended number of coats may vary accordingly with the product used and surface to be applied, please check the product labels for further information, contact Haymes or visit your local Haymes retailer for assistance.
