Decorative Masonry Foundation


I have an exterior foundation that is peeling(no primer used) and was wondering if Loxon Primer was a good choice, with Superpaint for the topcoat? I was going to scrape and pressure wash the surface before painting.

You are correct. Scrape, wash, make any repairs, apply SW Loxon Primer and apply 2 coats of SW 4uperpaint. We actually use the same products on exterior masonry most of the time. If you want to add a waterproofing barrier then you could use SW Shercrete instead of Superpaint and then there is no primer required.

That depends on the degree of texture. A 1/2 should cover the smoothest of stuccos. You can post a pic for better advice.

The foundation is formed to resemble a brick formation, if that helps.
