ebuild is sad to announce its closure - it has become too time and resource intensive to develop, manage and maintain.

However, ebuild will remain on-line in archive mode (ie no posting facilties) for several weeks so that users can use it as an information resource.

We are going to get someone in to spray the inside of the house.

They use Macphersons, or another brand, which they say are part of crown/dulux. Are these OK brands or is it worth specifying a particular brand for an extra cost?

We might roller a room at a time as we get a bit of money gathered up again to decorate, but I am hoping this initial base will be pretty hard wearing and last us a while.

I used Macphersons for my complete house. It's good paint to use, miles better than all the dulux crap you would get in b&q.

Did you spray or roller it?

Roller for mine.
And yes unless you buy dulux trade, £65+ a tub, then it's poor paint esp on new walls.
Spray finish is a better finish if its done by a guy who knows how to do it.

It'd be crown or dulux trade we would upgrade too, you reckon its not worth the extra? The sprayer comes recommended. We can go see his work too if we want.

I would use the paint that the sprayer guy uses as its what he does everyday.
