Can anyone with experience of Butinox or Demidekk Ultra help with some advice please ?
Basically, what’s the best stuff for my exterior windows which need redoing again after many efforts down the years with the “usual” makes which all fail and well …don’t do what they say on the tin ! i’m now looking at the above makes which sound pretty encouraging ?
I’ve used spirit stain oil varnishes and all in one woodstains previously but they all end up failing despite following all preparation guides .
To be fair it’s worse on the more exposed areas with the lower parts of the frame peeling off and the sills pretty much back to bare wood .
Questions i have are –
1.Wondering about the differences/merits between Butinox 1, 2 and 3 – i see that 1 is called translucent and 2 3 are opaque – which obviously i get but they still refer to 2 3 as a woodstain/paint ?
Is the finish of 2 3 a basic flat colour like paint or does it perhaps leave a kind of impression of the grain ?
2. Can i get the Butinox’s or the Demidekk Ultra in a Dark Brown /Mahogany like colour ?
3. What do you think about the Demidekk Ultra in comparison – i think i’ve seen that it’s referred to as Demidekk “Windows doors” so would that perhaps be the better product for planed timber?(rather than cladding etc ) or would the Butinox do just as well ?
4 In regards to the application – because some parts such as sills are down to bare would as i say , should i use a primer (ie Visir) before using the top coat/s ?
Also because there is some cracking and damage etc to fill repair , is there a filler that you chaps would recommend for exterior repair ?
Any help or advice much appreciated
