From the initial preparation and easy undercoat application right through the final, outstanding finish, Dulux Trade Weathershield supports every part of the professional exterior decorator’s job.
Step One: A comprehensive clean
As with any paint job, the first step is always going to be to prepare the surface. Exterior walls can pose particularly stubborn problems though, beyond the usual dirt and grime.
Wash the walls down using a standard detergent solution to get rid of all surface dirt, removing loose or flaking paint as you go. If you spot any mould or algae, rinse as much as you can off and make a note of it.
Mould and algae can be particularly troublesome on exterior walls. They need to be completely removed before they become problematic and ruin any finish.
Use the Dulux Trade Weathershield Multi-Surface Fungicidal Wash across the entire exterior if you have any suspicions of mould, algae or lichen - it’s suitable for all masonry and woodwork.
