Default Paint analysis

Hi all,
Has anyone ever had an analysis of paint undertaken, merely to help me determine which is the best paint to apply on outside walls/garden walls etc, if so can you let me know how you went about it?

Also, is there anyone on the Costa Blanca who can undertake analysis an inspection of paint that is currently on a wall? I know it is possible to complete inspection on aircraft (my previous employment experience), and also on cars so, logically, to me at least, it should be possible on a wall.

I painted my villa last year (externally) & visited 4 specialist paint shops that looked like they were poplular with traders (vans outside, people in overalls inside).

Some were useless & didn't offer any advice, 1 was excellent & talked me through options, preparations & best time to paint.

I chose the latter, excellent, not the cheapest but the finish really is exellent. In fact I called in after to thank him & tell him the finish was so good.

You really do get what you pay for - This is the 3rd time in 10 yrs I've painted the villa & the finish is far superior.

Good luck

This looks as interesting as watching the stuff dry
