Hi all. I have a curved section of brick work on the exterior of my house. It cover the cellar window and has been painted with white exterior brick paint. I need to add one or two course to the wall and I'd like to have a go at it myself. Sorry if this is a silly question but can I lay directly on top of the cleaned up paintwork? What sort of ties should I use? Any advice on this would be a great help. Thanks in advance.

personally I wouldn't, I would take it back to brick with a stiff wire brush, a wire wheel or a grinder with a flap disc, at a push a sander with a 60 or 80 grit

iKN.
