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

Depending on surface substrate check condition and carry out any remedial works required to make sound

Brewers recommends:

Stage 2 - Basecoat

Once the surface is clean and all loose material has been removed, treat with a suitable primer and allow to dry.

Brewers recommends:

Stage 3 - Topcoat

Apply an appropriate topcoat and allow to dry, followed by a 2nd coat to finish.
