    Masonary Paint and PVA

    Hello

    Looking at painting the front of the house (again). Before i have done it from a ladder but i will be getting scaffolding put up this time so i can do a better job. My question is once all the loose paint has been removed and cracks filled etc is it worth giving the bays a coat of PVA/water mix to seal them before i apply the paint and can anyone recommend a good paint (beige colour). I have seen some houses around which appear to have a gloss style masonary paint. Has anyone used this before?

    Regards

    NO....you want the paint to sink in and Bond into the wall, not create a barrier for it to sit on top of.
