Hi Everyone,

I'd like some advice re-painting a external garden brick wall please? As you can see from the photo the paint is peeling off.

The wall was re-pointed last year, to right of the photo gives you a idea of the previous state. Behind and to the top of the wall is next doors garden. I applied two coats of a good quality masonry paint.

I'm planning to brush it down and start again.

- Should I have watered down the paint 50/50 for a under coat first?
- Should I use a masonry stabiliser first?
- Should I apply a water seal product to prevent damp coming through the brick from the garden behind? Would this stop the brick breathing.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

Andy

Brick can be hard to paint..some are non permeable.. there seems to be quite a few layers of paint on there?

Get all the loose paint off, dust it down and either first coat it with Zinsser bullseye 123 before applying masonry paint, or get some owatrol emulsabond and add it to the masonry paint.
