We don’t want you ordering to much paint, we have already touched on the fact that lots of people have sheds and garages full of half used cans of paint, The main reason for this is simple we don’t estimate properly how much paint we'll need, this results in us all ending up with too much paint.
You can save yourself time and money by pre-determining the volume of paint you require before purchasing and more importantly saving the environment of unwanted waste paint which would at some point head for landfill.
