“Waste of time and effort”

Written on: 17/10/2016

Like other reviewers I am amazed that Crown are still selling this product.I washed and sanded all surfaces before using this paint only to find,as many others have,that the paint is certainly NOT durable as it soon starts to peel off at the slightest touch, On one door I was able to peel it off in large strips by hand. It looks likely that all my hard work and effort was a waste of time as I shall have to repaint everywhere. How I wish I had seen these reviews before wasting my money on… Read Full Review

“Crown Paints - Take Note...Reputation is Everything!”

Written on: 20/10/2015 by ggoudie (1 review written)

I've used Crown paints for years and have always found them to be of excellent quality, so much so that I always recommend Crown to friends. However, as a perfectionist and in an effort to keep my hall doors brilliant white I opted to switch from Solo to their 'Water Based Satin'. Big, big costly mistake that has driven us to to the depths of despair! Let me explain more...from the minute I started to paint it was obvious that this paint is not fit for purpose. The coverage was poor and it… Read Full Review

To add to my review...this is day 2 of sanding first door. It is so time consuming and effort driven that we are working is shifts. We have tried various methods and we have just discovered that a glass scraper is bringing the paint off in sheets. Thought we would share that tip with the rest of Crown's unhappy customers.

“Trading Standards Take Note - Crown Paints”

Written on: 08/10/2015 by homedecorator (1 review written)

Carpet fitters just putting down new carpet in newly decorated room. I spent hours doing this room and for the first time used Crown Stays White Quick Dry Satin on the skirting board, sanding before application as per directions on the tin - previous Dulux Satinwood goes yellow. Putting down the new carpet has taken off all the paint on the skirting board - I am in tears! I shall now have to sand off every TINY bit of paint and do it all again - plus I now have added problem of getting paint… Read Full Review

“Never ever use this paint”

Written on: 20/07/2015 by MoragScotland (1 review written)

I am just gutted at the mess this has made of my woodwork. Weeks of preparation have been ruined by this "substance" (you can't call it paint). I burnt off all the old paint, sanded and primed the wood and this Satinwood simply scrapes off at the slightest touch, and if you use a damp cloth it just flakes away. I wish I could afford to sue Crown Paints. I also wish I had read the reviews before buying the horrible stuff. Never again!… Read Full Review

“Nearly impossible to get a smooth finish”

Written on: 01/07/2015 by 6Beebe (1 review written)

Purchased from B&Q. I have been doing up houses for over forty years. I know what is good paint. Crown have done the right thing and are sending me a voucher. BIG DEAL ! B&Q were hopeless and would not give a refund. Absolutely disgusting !! Would not recommend B&Q the way they handled my complaint or rather the way can DID NOT handle my complaint. Could not recommend Crown water based non drip satin. Get an oil based paint every time… Read Full Review

“Rubbish”

Written on: 13/04/2015 by Hazel.nut39 (1 review written)

Used Dulux previously, after many years now discoloured. Redid window ledges with Crown satin a couple of weeks ago. Just gone to wipe over ledges during normal cleaning and the paint is coming away. Will be taking back to Retailer to make a formal complaint. Been decorating myself for 50 years and this is the first time I have been totally dissatisfied with product… Read Full Review

“Do not use this paint”

Written on: 12/12/2014 by Kolex408 (1 review written)

This paint is useless! It does not brush weel, covers poorly but worst of all is is very soft and peels off at the slightest knock. I used it on stairs and it peeled badly just with the friction of a carpet fitter trying to lay new carpet. It is an absolute no-no!!!!… Read Full Review

“Don't Use This Paint”

Written on: 16/03/2014

I wouldn't give it one star if I could. It is no good at all. It is not tough enough for the job. We are pensioners who look after our home. The woodwork is not subjected to hard knocks etc. We will have to redecorate after few months. What is Crown doing about it? The paint should not be on the market. It peels off if you catch it with a fingernail and is too soft to rub a mark off. If you try the paint rubs off as well… Read Full Review

“Crown non-drip emulsion - very poor”

Written on: 18/10/2013

The reviews bear out my own experience of using Crown non-drip emulsion. I have been DIY'ing for the best part of 50 years and take pride in making a good job, taking a lot of care in preparation and using quality brushes. I haven't used a Crown paint for several years - but I still have the paint which I use for touching up odd marks and it is superb. However the stuff I bought recently is almost worse than useless. I cannot get a finish free of brush marks and streaks and there is no way it… Read Full Review

“Crown non-drip satin”

Written on: 07/09/2013 by Aliraine (1 review written)

Paint utterly useless, peels off with just a fingernail touching it. After years of using Dulux satinwood, we decided to try Crown satinwood (as we very much like their emulsion paint) - worst thing we ever did. After hours and hours or preparation time spent on a hall, stairs and landing there are paint chips everywhere. What's even worse is that the paint is a light colour, so the chips in it are very noticeable from a distance. While our children were young and prone to bashing and… Read Full Review

“Soft and poor coverage”

Written on: 26/10/2012

About to apply a fourth coat on my doors. Coverage is poor and brush marks show up very easily. The worst thing about this paint, however, is that it never forms a tough robust surface. You can scrape it off quite easily with a nail. It's an expensive way to find out the product is no use for the application… Read Full Review

“I moved to a new house last year and used Crown...”

Written on: 28/05/2009 by DL71 (1 review written)

I moved to a new house last year and used Crown satinwood one-coat paint - I wish I hadn't. The coating is VERY soft, all the skirting boards and window-sills are covered in scuff marks and scratches. I only painted it 9 months ago and it already looks like we've been in the house for years… Read Full Review

“I used a shade of white (Winterbloom) to paint...”

Written on: 21/08/2005 by rbx (3 reviews written)

I used a shade of white (Winterbloom) to paint skirting boards and a door, which were already painted white. The skirting boards were acceptable with just one coat, but the door was more of a problem. With large areas, it is difficult to apply the paint to get satisfactory even coverage -- too much and you get paint runs; brush it out and you get poor coverage and streaking. The door needed three coats, even to get a barely satisfactory finish. Brush marks are a problem. Would hesitate to… Read Full Review

wish I had read these reviews before trying this paint in antique cream. does not cover on white undercoat even after 3 coats , very streaky and has what looks like water seperation circles (very small) cannot rub down after letting coat fully dry as it just peels away. dries too quickly as well and leaves brush marks. Never had eanything like this before what a waste of money..Johndad
