Painting the foundation.
In painting my house, should I paint the foundation first or last?

The foundation - as in a concrete foundation ?
Every one I have seen painted eventually starts to peel
So be careful on what you use
Wait for a Pro painter to recommend a product

Thanks. My question is more a timing one. Should I paint the outside walls, then the foundation or paint the foundation first before paining the outside walls. I was going to paint the foundation when my wife asked if I should do that last.

I would paint it last, clean it well, if its already painted scrape off any loose/flaking paint, prime any bare masonry with a masonry primer such as SW Loxon, then you can apply two coats of a quality 100% acrylic paint
