re: What kind of paint to put on exterior facing doors? - BasilFawlty
You can certainly paint it black. I had black doors and shutters on the east side of my house for years. It will collect dust, just wash them with cold water and simple green every so often. Use the best quality 100% acrylic latex (satin/semi-gloss/gloss) you can afford. That's the key to your fadi...

re: Cypress porch columns - finish question - BasilFawlty
Valspar, Sherwin, Ben Moore, Cabot all have viable clear sealers. They usually don't build a gloss, which makes it easier when it comes time to recoat. IMO, stay away from Thompson's. TWP is also a good choice. I'm a little rusty on what's out there, I haven't sold that stuff in a while....

re: Cypress porch columns - finish question - BasilFawlty
If you don't want to sand/restrain, your best option is to topcoat with a spar urethane. You'll probably have to recoat every 18-24 months. What you're going to run into is the stain fading. The parts that receive sunlight will basically bleach out. My personal choice would be a solid stain, paint...

re: Bathroom paint issues - BasilFawlty
I assume it's a basic neutral colour and not something more medium or deeptone? Here's what I would recommend to one of my customers. Wash down the walls with clean, cool water. If hairspray is used in the bathroom, add Simple Green to the water. Prime with Zinnser 1-2-3, repaint with an acrylic e...

re: Best paint remover for tubs & appliances? - BasilFawlty
If it's latex, something as simple as Windex (or another ammoniated cleaner) will remove it. Oil is best cleaned with mineral spirits while it's still wet. It'll take more elbow grease if it's dry....

[quote]So I’m good with using regular interior stain and applying some spar urethane over it? [/quote] Personally, I wouldn't use an interior stain. Exterior stains exist for a reason. You can spar over an exterior stain. Bear in mind that anytime a clear is used on an exterior surface, it becom...

re: Luxury vinyl plank flooring - BasilFawlty
Used it in a bath reno we did over Xmas break. PLAN, PLAN, PLAN. Then plan again. Once your plan is good it's fairly straight forward. Laid 12x24x7mm over existing ceramic. Had to level a small area where old vanity was installed, but floor went over that quite easily. Score with utility knife ...

re: Glass Cooktops - How Fragile are they? - BasilFawlty
