    A friend wants to paint over her lovely grey prefab concrete garage. Is it as simple as applying 2/3 coats of masonry paint. Questions are 1)Will it bond ok 2)Should she pre treat with anything? and 3)Is there any prefered paint type/make up. Thanks in advance.

    As long as its dry and not flaking, paint away. Thin the first one down a little the full coats after that. It doesnt need treating with anything first.
    Any branded masonry paint will do.
