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

(2) No
(3)Dulux weathershield or Dulux all seasons(From a trade outlet,better quality)

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

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.
