Problem Solver - Chalky painted surface

Problem

Previous paint system has weathered over a period of time causing the surface to become chalky or if untreated over a period of time the weather has eroded the fabric of the building / structure


Stages

Stage 1 - Preparation

Dry brush the surface down using a stiff bristle brush to remove any loose materials

Brewers recommends:

If any mould or mildew is apparent, treat with a suitable fungicidal solution, rinse again with clean water and allow to dry.

Brewers recommends:
  • Albany Fungicidal Wash 1L
    - A 1 litre concentrated multi surface treatment to prevent the growth of surface mould on timber and masonry

If painted, check for cracks or areas of blown render where water could penetrate such as behind down pipes and gutters and make good.

Brewers recommends:

Stage 2 - Basecoat

Once the surface is clean and all chalk has been removed, treat with a Stabilising Solution and allow to dry.

Brewers recommends:

Stage 3 - Topcoat
