"Taking on the challenge of restoring and decorating a 16th-century cottage I had tried various well-known paint companies including the ones specializing in period colours. All had their problems in achieving the finish I was after and many hours were spent painting and repainting over walls and ceilings. After reading the reviews of the Polar brand I gave it a try. Absolutely fantastic! It was a joy to use, a perfect flat matt white finish which I was after, even straight onto newly plastered walls, the appearance was fantastic. I thoroughly recommend this product, I just wish I had found it sooner and not wasted my money with the other brands." - Kevin

"This paint is great, not only was it £10 cheaper (for a much bigger tin) than the big DIY chain store equivalent, but it did the job perfectly despite the floor being old and in a poor state. The seller was quick and the whole thing was hassle-free. Many thanks" - Lenny
"Very good product covers well. Applied by brush due to the floor being very old and rough. Obtained about 14m2 per litre so you should consider this when ordering. Have another 5litres on order for the second coat." - Clare

Protect From Damp

Polar Coatings

During the wetter winter months of the year, many homes suffer from damp getting in and ruining their walls. Now that the weather is getting dryer it is the perfect time to block and prevent damp from being a permanent visual and health problem in your home. Damp & mould are known to cause health issues such as asthma, allergies and raspatory infections so if it is in your home it is best to get it fixed.

DampSeal is the perfect paint to tackle this. Our unique formula seals damp patches and prevents penetrating damp from pushing through and spoiling your decor in just one coat.

Why Use Our DampSeal?

  • Just one coat instantly blocks penetrating damp

"Excellent coverage of water leak. Doesn’t have a strong smell, easy to apply. Quite thick so could use white spirit to dilute. Magnolia colour is quite rich, didn’t fully match the previous magnolia paint job, which was a lighter shade, so you may need to buy more and paint a bigger area if you were hoping for just a quick touch up. Good customer service would recommend." - Nick
"Had some trouble re damp that just wouldn’t dry out, applied this and found the damp reduced to reasonable levels on damp meter, we were then able to overcoat this and have been fine since. (3 months). Very good product." - J. Allen
