painting house exterior


Hi There

First visit of many I hope...my son is about to re-paint, the bottom 4 courses of bricks on his house exterior, it is red, and he intends to do same.

My advice was to give it a good rub down, even a wire brush if needed, give it a coat, or two of bonding (think it's PVC?) which will act as a sealer, and act as an adesive.

Is my advice correct please

Bien, pour répondre correctement, nous devons savoir où vous êtes. Au moins dans la paire cent miles.

If the brick is in pretty sound shape, a repaint is all that's necessary. After scraping/wire brushing the brick and maybe even a gentle wash and dry, apply 2 coats of your favorite Satin or Semi-gloss paint. A masonry primer could be used to spot prime the bare spots. You can prime the whole thing if you feel it's necessary. Pretty straightforward.

Well, to answer correctly, we must know where you are. At least with in a couple hundred miles'

Loose tranlation.

I had 4 years of French in high school, but I really used a translating tool for this

It seems like the question was answered ,but at least here, it is way to cold
