I have just bought a property but unsure what masonry paint has been previously used?

Unfortunately, it is not always easy to tell, if you have bought an old property that needs airflow to prevent damp issues in the walls, ideally you would strip back to the original substrate if you need it to breathe. You would then use a breathable render and follow this with our breathable Silicate Primer and Silicate Masonry Paint.


Alternatively, if breathability is not an issue you can use Bonding Primer followed by 2 coats of Silicate Masonry Paint. Both systems are slightly different so make sure you know which is right for your property.
