Not only plastered walls are painted. Brick or concrete wall, clapboard surface can also be covered with a layer of paint. Such work should be carried out taking into account the characteristics of each material, which we want to tell you in more detail.
For painting wooden walls, often present in the interiors of private country houses, it is best to use compositions based on alkyd resin. Water-permeable alkyd oil paint is excellent for this purpose.
Wood is able to independently regulate the level of humidity, so moisture-proof paints should not be used. The pre-painted surface will need to be primed and dried.
In this case, the best option would be acrylic or alkyd paint. The surface of the brick wall is pre-cleaned of dust and dirt with a wet sponge, dried well, primed, and only after that they start painting. In order to preserve the effect of a brick wall, you can apply paint in a contrasting color along the seams with a narrow brush.
Concrete has a porous structure, so the paint applied to such surfaces is quickly and deeply absorbed. This significantly affects the material consumption. You can save money by pre-priming the wall with a special solution. After it is completely dry, you can proceed to surface treatment with epoxy or latex paint.
Multiple repainting of wallpaper is possible only if they were covered with water-based paint. Special wallpaper for painting is sold, which can withstand several layers of it. They allow you to quickly transform the interior, if there is a need to refresh surfaces or change color.
Well-prepared, dry and clean walls are usually covered with two layers of textured paint. We remind you that any defects and cracks must first be repaired.
