Learning how to paint rendered exterior walls requires some preparation. You’ll need:

Before you start, fill any cracks with an exterior grade render filler, then mask up the surrounding areas and make sure the wall is dry & clean.

Step 1: Place drop sheets on the ground or floor for protection

Step 2: Mix the Haymes Ultra Premium Solashield Exterior with the paint stirrer to ensure the consistency is even. It’s important to do this throughout the painting process

Step 3: With the roller or paintbrush, apply it to the wall in long smooth movements. Take care to ensure the product is evenly spread

Step 4: Allow 2 hours for drying before applying a second coat

TIP: Using a high-quality exterior paint and painting accessories (roller or paint brushes) for rendered walls will ensure a good quality finish.
