Did we decide that it's gloss on a front door, not acrylic eggshell?

A simple yes or no will suffice. Cheers!

Didn't we decide it was F &B eggshell?
Because the gloss wasn't as hardwearing outside?

Sorry, wasn't in on the original discussion, but would recommend gloss. I know F&B make exterior eggshell but we used it on our doors/windows and had to repaint a couple of years later with weathershield as the F&B had faded and fallen off. Am a fan of F&B usually, but I think they've made a mistake removing all of their oil-based finishes. (takes soapbox and slopes off...grin)

We prefer a high gloss acrylic based paint, as it is more flexible with weather changes, it expands and contracts with different weather conditions.

Thanks, it would be a F&B colour but a Leyland mix. Wanders off to consult the F&B paint chart...
