Really need some more info. Have they ever been painted before? Have they been sealed with block filler? I just received a contractor brochure from Sherwin Williams with an article about a new product for concrete and masonry it is called SherLastic 100% Acrylic Elastomeric Coating and it is touted for both residential and commercial. Maybe go on website and read up on it, sounds like what you need.

If they have been painted and it is in good condition you probably can skip the primer.

Sorry but this is TOTALLY wrong masonry paint is for concrete and concrete materials in other words masonry hence the name masonry paint and should not be used on drywall.

Masonary paint


"Masonry paint" is a generic term and thus, very vague.

For painting over MASONRY (block and concrete,) a product like Thoroseal is a superior material to use because it is NOT a PAINT. For concrete block (especially coarse textured), it provide a far more usable surface than "concrete filler" because it becomes a part of the wall (very dense) and provide the type of surface to apply paint-type coatings to.

It is not for quick and dirty painter or DIYer, because it is heavy and thick material depending on what consistency you chose to mix it to. It can hide mortar joints and large voids with a thick coat and follow the next day with a thinner more finished coat. Mixing procedure is critical. It is not an easy material to use and misting the surface before using is critical, but worth the effort.

I have used it on dam restorations, on interior and exterior buildings and the resulting surface is extremely durable and ready for painting or surfacing.

Certainly you use different drywall toward the front of your house than in the back, right? It's more important to make a good impression to arriving guests.

For a number of years I have been using SW block filler and lately elastmeric paint. The block filler is thick about 50sf to a gallon and need a sprayer that will shoot a 32 tip. Then it must be back rolled. I have never used or really heard of the product you recommend. Are they also the maker of the paint?
Maybe I should say all I have done is block or stucco.

The product is a commercial product and is usually not readily available. Been around for about 50 years for engineering and commercial applications. It is definitely not a common residential product because of the effort and timing of applications, so paint fillers have been used for mundane applications.
