I am preparing to paint a cement block patio. It's in pretty good shape
structurally, however the paint that the former owners used has peeled badly
and is VERY UGLY.
I'm looking to repaint. Of course I know I will have to scrape the paint
off of the block, it's textured, so I'm thinking I'll need to use a wire
brush, but any tips would be appreciated.
Then I'll move on to the primer and paint. I really want this to last
several years. It gets a LOT of use so whatever I paint it with will have
to be extremely durable and up to the challenge of 2 kids, 2 dogs, 2 adults
and lots of friends. The patio is covered, however it does get wet when we
have blowing rains. So, waterproof is also necessary.
I saw some paint that has a sandy texture, I would like something like that,
however not completely necessary.
This is our first house and we are fixing it up as we go along ... I have
read great info here :) So I was hoping someone could help me out. Thank
I'll post before and after pics :)
