Frequently asked questions about exterior painting
I repainted the internal doors of our home in an outdoor shed using Empire Furniture Paint. It has been several days now, but the paintwork is not yet completely dry. Is there something wrong with the product?
On the last day of my holidays I worked long hours to finish painting my house on time. The paint I used was oil-based Teho. The surfaces that I painted last were clearly duller than the surfaces painted earlier. What went wrong?
The wooden floor can be treated with Valtti Wood Oil or Valtti Wood Oil Akva to protect the surface against dirt, moisture, and cracking. Alternatively, it can be painted with tintable wood preservatives such as Valtti Akvacolor or Valtti Color. Because of the action of water on horizontal outdoor surfaces, we do not recommend products that form a coat on the wooden floor. Paints and coat-forming wood preservatives also make the floor slippery.
Please remember that the final colour of translucent wood preservative is greatly affected by the original colour of the pressure-impregnated timber. Wood oils can be tinted green.
Products suitable for the handrails include opaque waterborne Valtti Opaque wood preservative and solvent-based ValttiTeho Wood Finish.
