Primers can be tinted to the exact colour. If it's a just primer, it will appear thin and flat. The topcoat paint will look fuller, and...

No, an oil based will give a more natural feel. I would suggest Osmo Polyx or Liberon Finishing Oil

I wouldn't lose sleep over it. I would ring the Wattyl assist line and ask what the difference is between the two products as they're both...

I think painting isn't a bad option, however ensure that you make sure you get the painter to provide the full 15 year warranty that Dulux...

I'm a bit confused where you would actually put an outdoor kitchen in that space. Normally you need a blank bit of wall to put it up...

Correct it's a primer, so you would topcoat with an external grade non-epoxy metal paint. Alternatively you could use this product after...

Can vouch for Sanden. Very efficient, very quiet. Japanese made heat pump unit, Australian made tank. Would easily be offset with small...

What is your question specifically?

It’s not durable at low level, so you want to be mindful of that, but Hebel is also susceptible on corners, but this stuff would be next...

Akorn Kamado BBQ from Bunnings. It’s insulated so it holds heat. Can use it for short cooks or long, slow cooks.

I think uPVC has a good reputation because they seal really well, plus double glazing seems to be standard, so they would probably have...

Also I’ve heard that uPVC isn’t suited to Australian heat as its predominantly a European product, although it might be getting better.

If it’s built in the 60s, it may well have no insulation in the wall and very little in the roof. The only way to check is to stick your...
