    I used epoxy grout around a year ago on my bathroom Reno. Entire bathroom is a wet room so used it everywhere. I would highly recommend spectralock hands down. Just remember you need to clean up this stuff well as per instructions else difficult to get haze out. I had polished porcelain tiles and so I could use a flat blade to get some haze out in areas I missed. See here - and near the end of this thread for...

    Why are these fans so expensive. I'd consider them for my subfloor, but just seem a little too pricey for a fan. What is special about them?

    I'm interested to know what grit paper you used to sand the floor and how many grits you ended up using. You mentioned that you went over that specific area "twice", which to me indicates you used only one grit paper? If so, then if you used a coarse grit, the floor would remain rough, if you used a finer grit, you haven't sanded enough from the floor. I am leaning towards the latter scenario. Seems like a case of insufficient sanding.

    I've done this type of job a number of times as I have had flaking paint in a number of areas in my house which I have now repaired. In one area, the paint started peeling away from the surface again after the repair. It was particularly annoying as it was along the cornice in a bedroom which is tricker to work with. So the second time I did it, I scraped all the paint away again and this time used a oil based sealer binder (which I didn't do the first time) which I left to dry for a number of...

    Hello all. I started in this forum around 15 years ago with my first big DIY reno job which was to sand and polish the entire house (except one area) using Wattyl Estapol 7008. It turned out great, but I put in a *ton* of effort over 3 weeks "holidays" and fussed and fretted over every detail and swapped over several rental sanders for ones that actually worked properly. This forum helped out a lot and has since helped out with many other reno type jobs. Anyway.... 15 years on and it's...
