    Hello

    I have recently bought and had installed a Garden Office. (www.warwickbuildings.co.uk)

    I was hoping for some advice on what type of paint I can use for the INTERIOR. Can I use normal emulsions, (e.g. dulux)? I was hoping to do the ceiling white and the walls an off white
    shade.

    Thanks

    What timber is on the interior and is it treated at all?

    Hello

    It is tongue and groove timber, I think untreated, but I am asking the company to confirm exact details.

    Knowing as we do about T&G, has it a waterproof membrane under the T&G.
    Otherwise, movement, cold & heat will allow boards to move??

    Dont see a problem with that.

    Hi

    The wall construction has a membrane underneath the T&G. before it gets it the outside layer of the garden office.

    Thanks

    Take a look at the Sikkens range, the Rubbol Satura Plus is a good one for this application I think, is available in white, not sure about other colours. I find the Sikkens range to be good quality but very confusing.

    As its an outside timber office consider Bedec MSP (multi surface paint) as it will cope very well with fluctuations in temperature therefore resisting cracking along the t&g joins.

    YES...I know, what's the problem! Highly flexable, no priming required, suitable for both interior and exterior use.;)

    Please may I ask. As the OUTSIDE is clad in Cedar I was considering using RESTOL. Is this a good choice?

    Never have used it, however RESTOL has favourable reviews which is a bonus and contains linseed oil so can see no reason why not, follow the instructions though.
