“Sandtex masonry textured paint”

Written on: 15/04/2014 by Dericki232 (1 review written)

I have purchased two tins of this paint and after storing it in the shed over winter period it is useless. Cannot stir it or paint with it. According to Sandtex it has to be stored in above freezing conditions, meaning both my shed and garage isn't suitable for it to be kept over winter period. Can someone please tell me how many other members of the public think, oh yes it's going to be cold over winter I must bring the Sandtex paint indoors, or perhaps a hot water bottle each night out in… Read Full Review

“blotchy colours in the white paint”

Written on: 30/06/2013 by ahopkinson (1 review written)

After two coats of white textured masonry paint from Sandtex, I am still getting an orange type colour coming through, and stain marks where there has been Polyfilla repairs to cracking underneath. This is quite ugly. Maybe I should have used some preparation paint first?? The beige paint seems better quality than the white. Goes on really easily… Read Full Review

“ An expert's opinion and comment.”

Written on: 10/07/2012 by nigethedec (1 review written)

Stumbled upon this thread, don't normally write reviews. I paint lots of exteriors, both smooth and roughcast, as a professional decorator (since 1988). My advice would be to buy the trade (rather than the retail) version. It is an excellent product which goes on easily and lasts well. Any issues with flaking will be due to insufficient or incorrect preparation. Any issues with coverage will be due to the nature of the surface. The guidelines on the tin are just that, guidelines. On heavy… Read Full Review

“Sandtex Masonary paint”

Written on: 17/06/2012 by Richie010101 (10 reviews written)

Used this on a number of occasions and it is a very good product - it goes on easily and is very hard wearing. In contrast to this, I bought some Sandtex front door paint, and it is the worst piant i have ever used. Sandtex - stick to doing exterior paint please!… Read Full Review

“paint colours”

Written on: 18/08/2011

Never buy Sandtex paint without opening the tin in the shop. The colour charts are completely wrong & are even different from the colour on the tin. As an example I purchased a stone colour , painted the whole front of my house in one go & when it was dry it turned out a pinky-purple !!!!!!!!.So that was £30 well spent & a days work. Why cant they paint some samples to put on the wall in the shop????????? - BE WARNED… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/03/2011 by lbp01 (1 review written)

Just painted our new annex with 'Cornish Cream' from the swatch this should have been very similar to the rest our house. However its not it looks a bright yellow with a hint of lime green to it. Looks horrid now taking the remainder back and exchanging it for something else. Would recommend the paint product but not this colour!

Written on: 24/07/2010

I bought 2.5 litres of cornish cream to do masonry cills and reveals. Was most disapointed with the colour which turned out yellow, totally different from the colour indicated on the tin. Having said that it was easy to work and gave a great finish but unfortunatley I now have to re do. Unfortunatley my local stockist,B & Q, do not stock a more suitable colour… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/07/2010

Coverage wasn't as good as expected, in spite of pre sealing. And colour was nothing like the chart we picked up in store, OR the online examples(no surprise there though as Sandtex has a disclaimer) OR what was shown on the tin itself .. in fact it was SO different we thought maybe the wrong product was in the tin or the wrong name was on the tin!!!! Sandtex MUST get a decent colour chart for shops sorted out… Read Full Review

“I've just covered approx 50 sq m using Sandtex Trade...”

Written on: 07/08/2009

I've just covered approx 50 sq m using Sandtex Trade Smooth, It took 20 litres for 2 coats magnolia to cover a roughcast wall previously covered with chalk green sandtex. I used a car body underseal sprayer (thinned the Sandtex by 10%) then went over with a dampened brush to fill small imperfections and even out the coverage. Took 2 days. The max coverage spec on the tin of 16 sq m to the litre must have been achieved with a wafer thin covering on formica though! All in all a good finish and… Read Full Review
