I need to repaint an area of exterior wall under some ground floor
windows which is badly flaking - probably no more than a square yard
- and have found a small can of dulux 'feature wall'. I quaked at the
prospect of buying the minimum quantity of masonry paint which would
of course have been more durable but horrendously expensive for the
There is the added concern that the dulux is intended for interior
walls but my question is: Can I reasonably expect this paint to last
for a year or so by which time a more comprehensive decoration scheme
is likely to be undertaken?
The guy at B&Q said he thought the paint would run in the event of
rain. Is that really likely?
