    Recently completed this old barn conversion which was in a chit state.
    The internal walls in the entrance hall by the front door have blown since the existing owners moved no matter what their other decorators tried to stop/slow it down ,so when I was there last December I applied peel stop followed by a couple of coats of optiva 5 so it was fully breathable internally ,I also applied a masonry crime to the buttress wall,on my return for the external the HO was so eager to show me that the walls were had I left them with no signs of blowing
    Externally after the prep which was wash down,chasing out cracks ,removing the coin beads in places due to being rusted to where it was falling apart etc etc, i stabilised the walls with hydrosol primer followed by two coats of Finngard silicate protect.
    Another happy customer

    Hi Misty, First full year on using it the Finngard silicon protect although it was rebranded from last year when i started using it but thinking about it its been two years #9wow where does the time go to)Easy to use straight out of the tin,covers well even with a drop of o2 imho.Breathable so great for k-rend an the like .I often pass a church i done a year or two ago which was a lime render previously painted with a Tymawr paint if i recall correctly.Still looking as good today has it was when i done it.
    I have a grade 2 listed house to do next year and will probably use it(incidentally the same job has the recent window repairs)on there ,the last painter used jonnos stormshield and has far as i know that isnt breathable,although a tidy drop of masonry

    Its my go to at the moment :thumbsup:

    Hi Jason.

    I'm doing my own mansion and neighbours this year and thought I'd give Finngard a go. Decent price @ £10 a litre.
    Just read the TDS and it says to apply Finngard Uni Primer as a first coat on previously painted surfaces.
    Have you used the primer or just straight on ?

    Wasn’t told that when I used it last year on previously painted masonry.
    Only a small job of masonry along the plinth and roof tiling across the front bay.
    Still looks alright and no failure whatsoever.

    @RonyT ,I have never used the uni primer has this wasn’t on the TDS that I was aware of and certainly wasn’t made aware by the rep back then.
    I have used silicone protect now for a couple of years and IMO I have used it with and without hyrosol primer (which is a great primer and works superbly over hairline cracks).
    No issues to date with it even after long showers not more then 30mins of application
