    Hi having stripped the sandstone headers of windows, I'm looking to repaint and was curious what the best paint system is to use.
    I'm looking to paint it an off white so ideally like something that doesn't yellow over time.

    I'm looking for something durable. as I have to factor in the cost of scaffolding.

    The front of the building is a mock Tudor and I was considering using Linseed oil for the Wooden beams.

    For the pebble dash infill (in-between the beams) I've explored the possibility of using painting linseed oil paint and the paint suppliers have said it is possible but may be difficult to apply.

    Any suggestions would be very much welcomed.
    Thank you.
