probably not as good as Sandtex but for this price for a colour its a good deal

home base own brand, I think 2.5l was 16.99 at weekend there... dam should have got from aldi

I take you can only buy this on sunday the 27th at this price

Some advice please - I have an old concrete/brick shed that was previously painted about 12 years ago. Some of the paintwork is now patchy and flaking off. Would I be able to just paint this on, or would I need some kind of sealant first to stop the flaking? Thank you.

Before doing anything I'd rub it down with a wire brush

Excellent just what I need after the one I bought last year went hard.
Only buy what you need as it doesn't keep for long.

use Exterior Masonry Stabilising Solution in addition/after the wire brushing.

I had 3x10 litres of Sandtex for £70 last week . 3 for 2 works out about £23 for 10 litres, from B&Q

If you're going to go to the trouble of painting the outside of your house, i would do it with decent paint tbh.

My exterior garden walls have a kind of black algae/mould on them. Should I treat them 1st before using this paint please?

Our concrete fencing posts and concrete bases are painted white although lots of it has weathered away or gotten dirty now. I guess this paint would be perfect in my situation as a better quality paint (such as for a house) isn't needed?

Any advice welcome please: Thinking about painting the inside of my garage, which is standard breeze block. Would this be any good or would ordinary indoor emulsion suffice?

If needs be I would wash it down with warm soapy water or with a fungicidal wash if mould and mildew are present, using a stiff scrubbing brush, rather than a wire brush. (wire brushing can cause tiny pieces of the metal to break off and become in bedded in the surface, which if then overcoated with a waterbased product, could cause random rust spots to form)

Then asses the surface once dry. If the surface is powdery to touch, then a stabilising solution would ideally be needed to seal the surface before applying a masonry paint.

Obviously use an exterior filler to fill any holes or cracks and sand smooth any sharp edges.

If the surface looks "sound" and not powdery to touch, then applying 2 X coats of a good quality masonry paint will do, but ideally thin the first coat 10% to help with adhesion.

The range also has cheap masonry paint, used the cream and black, no expert but seemed ok for the job

Masonry would be cheaper and more durable than standard Emulsion in this situation. But either would suffice. But as it is breeze block I would thin the emulsion/masonry paint around 30% depending on the quality of the paint, as the breeze block would be very porous, if not already coated. This will help with both the adhesion and also waste less product.

Yes definitely. Wash it down with a fungicidal wash before over painting.

If your paint is kept outside, in a shed, during the winter it will harden up. This happened to me with a tub of Sandtex paint, I added a small amount of water and kept kneading it with a stick till the hardness broke down so I could drain off the usable paint.

You can paint over it but that won't stop the flaking/bits falling off.

The quickest thing to do is use a scraper to get rid of the big bits, then use a wire brush to give it a quick scrub over. Give the scrubbed areas a quick wipe over to make sure the surface is clean. Then paint as normal.

stabilising solution (google it ) is the way to go in most of these scenarios. I id mine with this over the weekend and can be overpainted in 4 -6 hours but you get so high you will want to wait till the next day, lol. ........

If you can pi$$ you can paint X)

What does a stabilising solution do? I don't want to paint my walls but would like some use something on the gable wall to protect it from the rain and wind. Any ideas?

You will find that the blocks will soak up a lot of paint so 2 coats will be needed so this will be fine to do it !!

Is this paint any good?
