Hi we just bought a house built in 1918 the walls seem to be solid concrete through and through. The walls are currently painted with some peeling.
Wanted to know the best way to handle this situation?
We can either paint the walls or put up sheetrock and insulate due to the low R value of concrete?
If we don't need to insulate should we scrape down all the paint on the concrete walls or can we paint on top of the paint already there?
There are some cracks in the walls how would we fill them in?
Is there a special method for painting and priming concrete?
If we need to insulate is there anything we should know that's unique to interior concrete walls regarding insulation?
We are trying to move into this house as soon as possible. I would have liked to work room by room but with two kids was concerned for lead paid so
I would want all work done before we move in.
Thanks so much any tips appreciated!
