• This will depend on how long since it was last painted.
  • If it has not been done in a while I would recommend a fungicidal wash; Farbex Multi Surface Prep is ideal.
  • This is applied to the surface by brush or spray , left to work , and then power washed off.
  • Even if the surface doesn’t look that dirty or has been painted over the last 2-3 years I would still recommend to this or at least power wash down the area.
  • A clean surface will result in greater paint adhesion subsequently.
  • Allow the surface to fully dry ( 1-2 days )
  • Fill any cracks with a high quality exterior filler – I would highly recommend the Toupret exterior range.
  • It is very important to fill any holes or cracks on the surface as over time water can get trapped here and cause problems later .
  • Mask off any areas that you don’t want painted i.e Doors/Window Frames and use a good quality Drop/Dust sheet to cover paths , Garden Beds etc.
  • Now you are ready to start painting

Good Luck !
