Building A New House
Apr 19, 2012 8:43 pm
ok so finally went inside for a look today and realised the handrails had been painted instead of stained
i looked in my colour schedule and we told the builder we wanted stain as per the display and guess what they put gloss white which i have missed on the day! so upset.
so how hard and what are my options for stripping the paint and staining myself???

Whether the builder would be prepared to do anything would probably depend on how generous they were.
If the handrails were ordered as paint grade you probably wouldn't want to stain them ones anyway. The best option would be to replace them with stain grade handrails.

Hmm , stripping the paint would be what we technically call a bastard of a job

If its in your color schedule as stained then the builder has to sort it out. If it can't be removed to your satisfaction then it should be replaced!

I guess if you had an email or something telling them it was to be stained you may be able to work something out with the builder, but i guess its been signed off on so they may not be willing to help you out.
For your sake i hope they are nice about it and prepared to help you out with it

Ok thanks for confirming. Will take this advice!

It looks to me that it hasn't enough paint applied, Did you water it down at all? Perhaps spray too far away from the roof and lots of dry mist?
