Hi guys, On the weekend someone graffitied our relatively new fence. The posts were powdercoated with Dulux in monument. I managed to take the black graffiti off with methylated spirits and isopropyl alcohol, but it's dulled the powdercoat. By dulled I mean less shine and looks like a shade or two lighter than the original semigloss monument. Is it possible to restore it back to original state? Can this be achieved by polishing it? What product(s)/process would you recommend? Thanks! NB: No clear coat applied, just semigloss Dulux powdercoat.

Hi, one of my work colleagues is looking to paint or stain some internal timber stairs.
They are in fair condition and have been sanded back and require some puttying.  Husband want to stain. Colleague wants to paint.  Both options have concerns about slip reduction.  Could you suggest products for both staining and painting.
