FAQs

Masonry paints are highly durable weather-resistant exterior paints formulated for lasting colour and finish. They are formulated to be suitable for all surfaces, including brick, render, concrete, and previously painted exteriors. Decent masonry paint can be used anywhere. All our masonry paint is sourced from trusted, reputable, and time-tested paint professionals that cater to domestic and commercial use.

It used to be that finding a decent masonry paint was a bit of trial and error, but you'll never have any issues shopping at the Paint Shed. When shopping for masonry paint, you'll want paint which is fast-acting, can provide decent coverage, won't give you trouble on the brush, and offers decent resistance against the elements.

If you're painting in high moisture areas or have to paint over a mouldy surface, a reliable fungicidal wash will come in handy to prep your surface accordingly. 

Masonry paint is primed for use on walls outside, but you might want masonry paint if you're painting any of the following surfaces:

  • Walls
  • Wood
  • Metal (fencing)
  • Plastics outside
  • Flat stone (interior and exterior)

If there is a surface you want to paint, but you're not sure what you need, visit our Specialist Paint section

This is a popular question customers have when they're not familiar with masonry paint. You'll tend to find you can have smooth or textured masonry paint.

Smooth masonry paint is the most common and what gets used on most homes. You find it is a little more forgiving and lets you get away with applying liberally with the brush. Textured masonry paint (also sometimes called fine or rough masonry paint) is a little more accommodating by having a different consistency. The "texture" can help gloss over small patches and marks while also filling in better on cracks. If you've ever painted over the walls of an older roughcast home, you'll usually find they have had a coat of textured masonry paint before.

Unlike using a matt paint indoors, masonry paint tends to lay on a bit thicker, and you'll find yourself loading the brush just a touch heavier for quicker work on the surface. Masonry paints tend to have a lower level of coverage per litre compared to interior paints. For example, a best-seller like Weathershield Smooth Masonry gives around 4-6m² per litre. A product like Stormshield Smooth Masonry can give you 9-11m² per litre.

Any decent paint job requires a little foresight, which is why we think it is important to have your surfaces primed before you get to work. Top masonry primers you would want to try out include:

Anyone looking to smooth down or clean out any dirt or problem areas before beginning to paint should get a reliable wire brush, especially if using masonry paint on metal with rust patches.
