    Hi All
    Ive got to paint new render on an extension and existing painted render, my questions are:-

    1. Is it suitable to use water based this time of year?
    2. Do i need to use a stablising primer first?
    3. What brand would you recomend?
    4. Old render looks dirty/ green should i use a fungacidal wash first?

    Any other advice/ tips would be appreciated

    Hi,
    (1) Maybe, on a dry, warm(ish) day
    (2) No
    (3)Dulux weathershield or Dulux all seasons(From a trade outlet,better quality)
    (4)No, Unless its furry or wet
    :)

    Yes, Weathershield is water-based, its pretty durable stuff...Personally I dont apply it after the end of Sept /mid October - weather permitting.
    Theres a good colour range to be found in Dulux.
    If you can afford it resin-based(Pliolite) is longer-lasting & 'dries' better in iffy weather

    Gliddens is basically Dulux made for the American market. Just as good.

    1) Yes as long as its dry, and looks like staying so for a good few hours.
    2)No
    3)Crown
    4)would not harm to do so on any green render.
