Painting Metal Columns

Postby redfield » Sat May 17, 2008 12:18 pm

Can you recommend an exterior paint for two metal columns that hold up the overhang of my 1st floor extension? They have been painted with red oxide at the fabricators but I need to give a finish - preferrably stone coloured. Thank you

Hammerite or Blackfriar. You'll not get it in that colour AFAIK though.

I would recommend using a good quality exterior gloss for metal. You should be able to get a colour that you like for them.
