have just done a redec of house where i stained the woodwork in sadolins extra 4 years ago , but did a tricky to get to gable facia in jacobean walnut barn paint . the facia issouth facing , the wood was previously done in sadolins extra , but hadn't been done for 10+years bu the look of it ,so you can imagine the condition of it , although it hadn't split or cracked was still in a half decent condition .
apart from needing the lightest of a sand down and wash the barn paint had not flaked or peeled ,in fact it didn't really need doing
the windows and and other south facing bit that i did in sadolins had not fared so well .

another job i did around 4 years ago was again south facing white windows with a black sill. the customer had it done previously by someone else with dulux w/s u/c +g which only lasted 3 years .did it all in MSP, had a look the other day ,still in tip top condition.

seriously considering making it my no1 choice for woodwork

Thanks.. it's good stuff but possble three coats on some bits... with the white, the matt black is amazing though, twice the thickness of the white, I also re painted the gutters and downpipes and a plastic electric box in the black and it all looked the nuts.. it really is Multi Surface Paint

i have used the msp chocolate over windows stained in sadolins , that was 5 years ago , the only place it has failed is where the wood had scorched out on the sills which weren't rotten , just cracked and dried out borderline whether they needed replacing , the sashes were still in tip top condition and this was south facing , full sun .

the Bedec factory is only half an hour away from me , so occasionally i've been over to pick my order up , it is only a micro business , a few buildings on a farm in the middle of nowhere ,

hi roy , bedec is the maufacturer , they make a wide range of water based paints - the 2 faves are msp (multi surface paint , this can be used on just about anything , no primer or u/c required , all that is needed for bare wood is a thinned coat of msp and away you go .
another good one is the barn paint , again water based , great for cladding , fencing , you can paint it over bitumen without any sealer , so it's great for plinths , doesn't fade like bitumen
all the paints are breathable ,,further info available http://www.bedec.co.uk/
