Now then painters, a question from an old joiner. I'm needing to coat up some steel posts and frames for a pair of gates that are going to be clad in wood. In the past I have used undercoat and/or hammerite but I wonder if powder coating would be a better and classier alternative? Can anyone give me any guidance on price, availability in East Yorkshire/North of England area and whether I'm wasting my time. Will the outcome justify the expense. One factor is that the steelwork will be exposed to quite a harsh maritime environment, salt and steel don't mix. Any advice/thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
