Preparing Your Walls
Please ensure to follow the guidelines on the back of your Weathershield paint in regards how to prepare your walls correctly.
Firstly, remove all the loose or flaking material from your wall, this is an essential process so take your time to complete correctly
Ensure surfaces to be painted are clean (no dirt, grease or flaking paint) and dry. Areas affected by mould, lichen or algae should be treated with Weathershield Multi-Surface Fungicidal Wash
If the surface is still powdery after thorough preparation, seal it with a coat of Weathershield Stabilising Primer. Do not use this primer to seal sound surfaces. Surface defects should be repaired using the appropriate Polycell product.
TIP: if you seal a new or bare surface, thin the paint by adding 1 part of water to 5 parts of paint.
