    Hi

    I have just had a lean to type conservatory built in my house (100
    year old Terrace).

    I want to paint the inside walls as at the moment they are plain
    brick. There is two walls which are the full height of the
    conservatory which are part of my house.
    Both these were outside walls but now form the inside walls of the
    conservatory, and there is one dwarf wall.

    What type of paint should I be using. THe walls are theoretically
    internal as they are no longer exposed to the elements, so can I used
    ordinary matt emulsion (which I have lots of) or should I still be
    using exterior masonary paint. Note I will only be painting the
    inside of the dwarf wall. I will only be painting the inside portion
    of the two main walls
    (i.e the ipart that is inside the conservatory).


    Thanks

    start with emulsion? - if you get any damp patches developing over
    coming months then youmay need to switch to masonry paint or take
    further advice....

    hope it helps

    I'm using Aldi's cheap white external masonry (over breezeblocks)
    inside the workshop. I don't care too much about weather resistance,
    but at least I know that it won't mind an alkaline substrate.
