Rated 5 out of 5 by Silverfox Good choice
Not knowing much about paints or lingo used I bought Primer so had to exchange to undercoat. No problem with exchange staff understood my dilemma. Next home to paint ledges trim and doors!
Yes I know I ought to be in the garden but summer just started and time to paint indoors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by A Dab Hand Really useful practical product.
I am a professional Painter and decorator.
I use Homebase Undercoat to replicate the finish of eggshell paint that was applied over 4-5 years ago to 'blend in' areas of paintwork that have needed repairing ie chips and cracks. The dried finish is the same dull sheen and the colour, which is slightly creamy, is just the same as 'aged' white oil eggshell. The EU has forced changes to current paint recipes with the removal of the lead that mean that all the current oil paints are shinier.
*If you only want to 'touch in' repairs and not have to do all the woodwork again, then the Homebase Undercoat does the job perfectly as an eggshell topcoat.
As an undercoat, it is thick enough to do a good covering job and disguise imperfections -unlike some other brands which are thinner and runnier.
Sands well too..so practical and useful.

This is a great product. I replaced the old non coated hose with this one, it is easier to wipe and will long term be better then the old style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by girl painter excellent
In the past I have used a brand name for all my painting(which i do alot of). This time as there was a big difference in price, I decided to use home base own brand, to try and save money. Its BRILLIANT, Its covered varnish that has been on for 10 years or more. Very pleased and will definately buy again. Thanks Man in the shop for your advice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DeeZleUK Excellent paint
Covered well with no real problems. Excellent value for money and would recommend this paint wholeheartedly. If covering on bare wood use white primer first followed by a light sanding. If over old paint sand well before application. Lightly sand before applying your top coat.
