I recently had some of my carpets replaced so had to empty a few rooms of their contents and move the furniture around.
When I did this I discovered that a lot of the woodwork (skirting mainly) that had been behind furniture had gone yellow.....this woodwork was only painted a few years previously.
Does anyone know why this would happen? Would a lack of air cause a paint to turn yellow? (I would have thought it would be the other way round) I used Dulux and the right sort of paint so that wasn't the problem.
I guess there is nothing I can do about it but paint the woodwork again, however what can I do to stop this happening again?
I don't think water based paints flow out as well as oil , it helps if you use a quality brush such as a perdy , on skirtings and trim this may not be so noticible but for doors you could well see a lot more brush lines .
I personally do not think it is as hard wearing as an oill finish , I guess eventually all oil paints will be phased out but now more than ever customers expect a smooth high gloss finish
