Rated 5 out of 5 by MrsM - Devon. Amazing basecoat for nightmare walls.
I don't usually have time to pop reviews on but felt the need to make time for this product. It's amazing! We have a new baby on the way & stripped the wallpaper from the nursery to be, to find cracks, holes dark purple paint one side of the room & bright yellow on the other?! We wondered how we would be able to paint the cream colour we wanted & then I found this little beauty!!
My husband filled in all the large holes with filler & sanded, but as on the description of the paint, it says it will cover hairline cracks and that it did as well as the hideous colour paint, the yellow only needed one coat of this base coat & the dark purple 2 coats but the room is now a perfectly crack, lump free canvas for our cream paint. The base coat is lovely & thick but easy to apply (according to my husband!) the 2.5L pot did one small box room (1.8m x 2.7m) scraping up all the last drops! We're off to buy another tub today but the 5L one, as going to do our other children's bedroom too!
Great job homebase.

Bought this product for our bathroom which was very badly plastered. This product has done an excellent job, covering all the small cracks and uneven surface. I can highly recommend this Basecoat, I didn't expect such a good job, but in fact it looks like I have had the whole bathroom re-plastered. Would definitely use again.

If you have walls or ceilings with hairline cracks in then homebase basecoat is the perfect product to apply prior to using your top coat emulsion, also use over sanded filled in areas before painting to give you a perfect even finish. my tip is to apply 2 coats over cracks the first goes in the crack the second seals them.

The walls after applying this basecoat came out absolutely perfect and smooth. Shame I didn't make pictures "before" and "after" as my husband couldn't believe I haven't done some more "treatments" to the walls. They fill up to 3 mm scraches and dents without doing anything else. The only downside is the price as for single bedroom I needed two pots as I applied it generously. Otherwise - perfect fix for slightly damaged walls.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SaintsFan more or less as expected
Purchased to cover a green and yellow wall covering (ex Saints Rugby themed bedroom)!. Two coats eliminated the bright colours already on the wall, and time between coats drying was small...two coats applied to a smallish room in one day. Slightly dissapointed that minor wall imperfections were not 'filled' by this thick paint, but overall satisfied with the purchase and would reccomend the product for covering bright colours prior to application of a softer shade.

We had a hideous purple wall which needed covering up, we had to use 2 coats as the original paint was so dark but definitely nothing to complain about especially as it was a good price.
