Besides, do you need to prime concrete before painting?

For a clean and even coat of paint, your concrete surface will need to be thoroughly cleaned before primer is applied. Most primers will dry in a few hours, but home improvement professionals suggest waiting a full eight hours after priming before applying paint just to be sure.

What kind of paint can be used on concrete?

ANSWER: Today's epoxy, polyurethane and acrylic paints wear much better than oil and alkyd paints on concrete. Before applying a water-resistant paint, clean and roughen the surface. Use a trisodium phosphate solution or strong detergent to scrub the floor.

Can you paint a fence with a roller?

In general, it's hard to paint a metal fence with a roller because there are few large, flat surfaces. The exception is chain-link fence, because you can run the roller along the surface of the fence and paint it very quickly and thoroughly.

Is it better to stain or paint a fence?

Painting or staining a wood fence can help your fence last longer and look better. However, of the two we always recommend that you stain a fence rather than painting it. Wood absorbs stain much deeper than it does paint.

How do you clean a fence before painting?

Remove heavy debris with a wire brush.
A stainless steel wire brush prepares a wood fence for painting, but it is also handy at getting rid of stuck on dirt and grime. Run a wire brush over any caked-on or large pieces of debris. Be careful not to scrub a wire brush into a painted fence too deeply.
