    New build walls 7th Oct 17 at 5:18 AM
    Does anyone know the cheap white paint used in new build properties? It's on plasterboard l. I don't wanna repaint the entire house but need to touch up.

    If it were only that simple.

    If the patch shows up you could just paint that wall

    All builders have a preferred contractor who in turn have a preferred paint manufacturer. Call the house builder and ask what paint was used or who the painting contractor was.

    The builder may have specified what paint should be used so they are your best bet.

    Leyland Superleytex is a popular new build paint as is Johnstones jonmat
