    Hi all,

    I'm about to paint part of front of my house on cement surface (see pics).

    Need some tips please on what sort of paint and undercoat and brushes i should be using.

    I'd ideally like to use a paint that is hard wearing and doesnt need repainting for a while..

    Colour black or white. Any help appreciated. Many thanks

    Make sure the render is completely dry before you start painting, otherwise it will flake off in no time.
