Advice - paint maintenance

Post by pc.hc@tesco.net » July 25th, 2020, 3:33 pm

Advice please - made it too Menorca and so thankful to see our little house again. However we have lost large sheets of textured paint off the rear patio. Is this easy to fix? If so advice for reapplying. Thanks 😊

I've never seen masonry primer but I'm sure its available in bernat petrus or similar. Otherwise its back to using a wire brush to stabilise the surface then slapping on Titan exterior.

My friends had similar issue with their villa in Binibeca and a builder recommended they use tile paint to prime the surface, before repainting, they’ve never had an issue with it since.

Hello PC Tesco .
It looks like to me there is a certain amount of dampness there that could be a cause of the problem ,although not a a great problem but needs to be rectified ,!.
My advice is to give it a good scrape down , remove all loose and powdery surface and brush down .
A masonry primer sealer should be applied and left to dry .
In the photos it definitely looks like a textured coating /paint ,so obtain some of that from the local builders merchants,they should have some /or a decorating centre ( someone else will let you know best place .…... Shuggie!! )..
Also when it does rain have a look to see if the water collects in that area either on the tiled floor area ,or it could be collecting on top of the wall around that point and falling from there and splashing back up the wall making it damper than necessary.
Also , does that wall face Northerly direction ?.

I'll stop sprouting off now 🤭 and let you get on 😁..
Paul

This is what you need. Done this process loads of times and it just works. Strip the old paint off with a scraper and or jet washer. If its mouldy spray with bleach. Let that dry and then dilute the stuff below with water as per the instructions. Paint the diluted mixture onto the surface with a brush or roller. Apply 2 or 3 coats and let it dry and then start to repaint. First coat should be well diluted paint, about 50/50 with water (only use Titan Professional). Second and third coat dilute to approx 80/20. Three coats in total should do the job. Fijador is the name of the product and is basically a stabilising solution. It’s widely available in all diy/paint stores. Go to Caules on the Mahon poligono and you’ll get everything you need in one place.
