    We just coat with matt emulsion unless the spec says to use a sealer, moat specs state sealer to be used in bathrooms and kitchens otherwise its matt emulsion if its silk etc coat it with matt then silk on top stops flashing

    You never had trouble with boards yellowing? I've seen whole houses go yellow apart from over the joints when sealer hasn't been used.

    never seen boards yellowing unless water damaged boards dude, been at this almost 10 years now painting and hand taping. Its always been dulux/matchmaker decent paint used I dont touch crown or johnsons its cr**. Have been back to other peoples jobs fixing things have seen yellowing in kit houses but looks asif the boards had lay damp for some time? Sealer in wet rooms bathroom/kitchens pretty much due to prices 35-45 for 10L of Lafarge sealer opposed to 12-25 for 7-10L matt emulsion just depends what client wants we've used eco friendly paints before at around 120 for 12L and some specs have stated not suitable for on top of drywall sealers?
