    Hi all

    I want to paint the new concrete lintel over my garage door in white. Can I just apply some weathershield / masonry paint or do I need to seal the bare concrete first?

    Thanks for any advice

    Put a thin coat on first as the concrete will be quite thirsty. Then full coats after that.
