澳洲Australia property does tile paint last on wall tiles? | Syd


在澳大利亚 Hi all, I currently have a PPOR and 10K cash in the bank which I plan to use as a deposit for a IP early next year. Is it possible for me to place this into my PPOR loan and then redraw the 10K when Im ready for the IP and then claim the int Hi Guys, Ive found a property that has mentioned two payments coming up of $1400 to apparently top up the admin fund and 2 have just been paid. Im looking at a financial statement (basically a balance sheet) for the strata and its all a bit


Hi All

I know some of the renovators out there have been using white knight or similar products for a while now. So my question is: does the finish last? Has anyone noticed on subsequent inspections of their properties that the tile paint is wearing well or not so well? In particular does the finish wear well in the shower cubicle?

I'm having a great debate with my crack reno team at the moment about whether we paint over some sound, but 70s pink tiles on the bathroom wall. Some are in shower cubicle, some not.

I understand that the tile paint doesn't last so well on floors with high traffic, which is probably fair enough, but what about on walls that get an occasional elbow brushing? :p

I've never had the chance to use tile paint before as all my reno's have had drummy tiles that fell off with a harsh glance...

Thanks in advance for your accumulated wisdom...

Hi Nigel,

I acutally painted wall tiles a year ago & inspected that IP last week & looked as good as the day I painted it... note: I used the White Knight product range (from their cleaner, undercoat & tile paint)... came up a treat... I used a soft paint brush & came up nice, but if I was to do it next time I'd probably use a small roller to finish the job quicker...

Note: if u need to paint the bathtub I used one of the Epoxy products (forget name, but only bath tub paint at Bunnings at the time) & it came up a treat, that also looked good one year later.... I just replaced the floor tiled & a new shower screen & made the bathroom look new...

Cheers,

MannyB.

There's also been a few threads on a similar subject- a search on "White Knight" will give a few more clues.

While not having much success with painting floor tiles, I have to say I can't fault the look of the wall tiles I painted, I used white knight as well, and it turned out very good.
I used tub and tile on the floor, really I have to say I think this product has the potential to work very well as long as you follow the preperation to the letter, I didn't and consequently some of my gleaming white floor tiles have dog hair, and one has half a millipede embeded in it.

I used a product called ESP on my wall tiles (didn't know about white knight) and then pained with a normal high gloss. 5 years later the tiles were still fine until i started the new bathroom.

I have used Tub n Tile (WhiteKnight) on kitchen tiles and they came up a treat. I tried to scrape some off with a sharp stanley blade as a test and couldn't. I am intending to do some bathroom and toilet floor tiles with this product as well I am so happy with it.

A tip though - the tiles have to be VERY clean before painting it or it will not adhere. If this is the case, you can prime the dodgy spots with the tile and laminate primer and the tub n tile will adhere to it with no problem.

Nigel - I've had great success with ESP - but I have never used it in a shower. I'd probably go for one of the bath-finishing products in those circumstances.

I used Solver PSU when doing my laminated Kitchen doors and cupboards. THis stuff is amazing. It is meant for colorbond primarily so if it sticks to that it will also stick to most anything. I used a solvent also from Solver first to clean them with a scourer - they were disgustingly filthy caked in food and all kinds of mouse excrement !! (Yes I did kick the tennants out on settlement!) and then an enamel high quality paint.

Seems to have worked well. I was advised against ESP as it is just Turps and linseed oil mixed together. :rolleyes:

Hi all,

I used ESP with the kitchen tiles, bath and bathroom wall tiles.
It did not cope well with the constant soaking of the tiles in the shower but on the rest of the tiles it was fine. In the bath I found it was fairly easily scratched and no doubt wouldn't stand up to the constant strain of use either. I'm going to try the bath and shower again with tub 'n' tile, I think.

Do you remove grout before painting ?
