Repainting house

86 viewsBreathable Paints

Hi. We have recently moved into a house which is part cobb and lime plastered. The exterior of the house has been painted previously with a normal weathershield exterior paint. When we come to repaint it should we change to a breathable paint or is it sort of too late now, if you see what I mean!?

Also what is the best product to use to repair and external crack in the wall?

Many thanks

Thanks for getting in touch.
The best option would be to remove the existing paint that’s on the exterior.  However, Beeck Rensoil could be applied over the existing paint (providing it’s sound) and it won’t seal the surface any further, so whilst not solving the issue it wont worsen it.  Please let us know if we can be of further help.
