I want to repaint my step at both the front and the back of the house, but I'm not sure what paint to use. They are both brick steps, previously painted and they are both a single step from ground level into the house.

I don't want the step to become slippery when is raining, would standard matt masonry paint do the job? I've seen specific step paint that leaves a 'rough' surface for better grip, but they only come in red and I want a similar colour to what it is now, beige.

Thanks!

csiman beat me to it ..

Another option, though not sure how good it would be .. a trick my father taught me, when he built sailing dinghies years ago, when non slip paint wasn't available, sprinkle fine sand over normal paint

I wonder if something like this fits the bill: http://www.regalpaints.co.uk/product/antislip-quick-dry-concrete-floor-paint-Paint01.html?subid=2


It's very strange. I thought this type of product would be fairly standard at places like B&Q.

I used to put hammerite on mine :D

Any oil based paint will do for the outside . Dont use masonary paint for a step , the good stuff is supposed to 'chalk' and will wear down quickly .Crown eggshell [matt] or even a gloss paint will suffice .

Thanks for these replies. The one from amazon probably looks the best, the regal paints would probably do also but the colours are a bit funky! I tried homebase, b&q and wickes, none of them had what I needed....
