Porch paint


P

Peter

Last year after I had emulsioned the interior of my porch, the paint
appeared to split and a cotton wool like substance was behind the paint.
A builder has dealt with this and I now have newly plastered wall, (on
plasterboard.)
The plaster is dry and he advised me to paint it with watered down emulsion
before I did anything else.
How many times would I need to do this, I assume it would be sealing it.
Also no heating in the porch, what would be the best paint.

Thank you.

Your poor spelling aside, there are some handy tips here:

If you are using vinyl emulsion on bare plaster (and it's unusual to see
any
other type these days) I've always been recommended to prime or seal the
plaster first. If it's a porch, and hence likely to be a bit damp, I'd be
doubly careful. You can get plaster sealer from Dulux/B&Q etc. I suspect
it's
just a form of diluted PVA, but I'm not certain.

Thank you very much
