  1. Hi - Recently I refurbished my concrete garage floor. Scrubbed and acid-etched it, applied epoxy primer and 4 coats of epoxy paint for a lovely deep colour. Then finally applied a transparent protective topcoat, which went horribly wrong. The topcoat was supposed to be "smooth satin finish with excellent flow”, but it was actually quite viscous and didn't flow or settle well. Even worse, it didn't dry transparent, but with a cloudy white effect - the floor looks like a glazed doughnut. All materials were highest quality major brand and all bought retail on-line from sam
  2. Hi all, About 12 months ago my partner and I bought three ceiling lights from Dunelm and fitted them using the recommended bulbs. Over the past 12 months dark stains have appeared on our ceiling above each bulb. A sample light was sent back to Dunelm who investigated the issue with the supplier and eventually accepted liability, offering to pay to have our ceilings repainted. This is all great and we're happy with the service. We obtained quotes and sent a middle-of-the-road quote to Dunelm for approval, however they refuse to send me the money, instead insisting the money is pa
  3. I am currently tidying up the house doing little jobs. The bannister rail was varnished in a dark colour, most of which I have been able to remove and will keep going until it is fully removed ( bit of a job) The question is whether to re-varnish in a lighter colour or to prime paint, then coat with a hard wearing oil based white paint. With varnish over a period of time, grease from hands gets into the varnish making it unstable and needing to be removed, re-varnished. With white paint, it will get a little dirty over a period of time, but if you clean it regularly with a d
  4. Home base have done me wrong! I'm here because I've never had an issue to really complain before. I had paint mixed to the colors I wanted in satinwood but even though it says satinwood on the tins it's matt. All my hours of rubbing down the chairs ruined, also they've been freshly woven with fabrics so to repaint is impossible but it's all peeling off. Also my kitchen cupboards are ruined and peeling. I am an amateur so thought I'd done something wrong but as I'd sanded and sugar soaped everything when a friend who paints visited and I asked them why the peeling was h
  5. On the 10th March 2014 I ordered some car paint from a company called Car Paint Repair and paid by VISA debit card £16.49 including postage. After a week days and no delivery, I emailed them to query it and the reply was that the goods were in post and to wait a few more days. Yesterday and today I emailed them and no reply. I have tried phoning but no answer. I have since done a search and found a number fo bad reviews for this company. My fault I should have checked them out first for reviews. Is there any way I can get my bank, Nationwide to cancel the transaction and refund th
  6. Hi folks I am stuck and hope one of you clever people can help me. I bought a new VW Caddy last year for work, 03/11, and after a few months the paint started flaking off the 2 rims on the driver side only. No problems on the passenger side... I mentioned this to VW at time of service, 03/12, but heard nothing back. Yesterday I cleaned the van and noticed that the paint has now flaked off on about 25% - 35% of the driver side rims. Both front and back. Drove over to VW and they fobbed me off with it's down to "external factors" and will not be covered under the warranty. WHAT
  7. Hi guys, Need a little advice as to what my rights are on this!! So, let me start at the beginning. Happy little ol' me gets new car home, waits a month and then takes into the garage about 6 weeks later for its 1000 mile/1 month service. Now to begin with, it arrived with a scratch which they had admitted was done when fitting a panel and agreed to repair. This was only small and in a fairly unobvious place so I was fine with the small paint touch up required to fix it. Here comes the worst part. While there, parked in the lot post service, some lovely inconsiderate idiot opened
