Question: 

Hi is it possible to colour the white to a cream if so what can I use or do you make it in cream thank you Peter

Answer: 

I'm afraid not, this is only available in white. As it is a primer it needs to be overcoated so wouldn't be seen.

Question: 

How much material primer and sealant will I need for a aspestos garage roof that measures six meters x two and a half meters and what would be the cost Thanks

Answer: 

When applying the Aquashield coatings to fibre cement/asbestos corrugated sheet we always recommend 'double priming' with Britannia Aquashield Primer. In this instance a popular finishing coat would be Britannia Aquashield High Build.

To apply 2 coats of Britannia Aquashield Primer followed by 1 coat of Britannia Aquashield High Build to 15m² you should require;

2 x 5lt Britannia Aquashield Primer
1 x 20kg Britannia Aquashield High Build
