After the advice given to my question on how to do some fixing up of my sash windows I thought I would ask a question on the final stage of the repairs, the painting. After 23 years in the RN I am no stranger to bimbling round with a paintbrush and actually took some pride in preparation and finishing so am quite looking forward to this bit. Therapeutic in a strangely disengage brain and concentrate on application of the paint way. Anyhow, a bit of further advice or opinion is needed. I was going to use Dulux Weathershield simply because it always appears to be the best. There do now however appear to be some other products available including one by Sandtex. Has anyone experienced these new 'kids on the block'? Would you recommend them or curse the day you ever opened the tin! Does it cover as well as Dulux? does it last as long, not just the guarantee, but in practice?
