Hammerite on brickwork


Postby LES EATON » Thu Oct 15, 2009 1:37 pm

I want to paint a couple of rows of bricks at the base of the outside walls of my house. Several people have suggested I use Hammerite, but the tin states that it is for metal only. Would I be OK using it on brickwork, or is there a better alternative.

LES EATON,
Use a microporous masonry paint.

LES EATON,
No most paints are not micro-porous especially hammerite.

Les

In any event masonry paint means masonry paint not metal paint.
