    Hi, moved into a house not long ago.

    The whole house is rendered with colour through render.

    Not only is it patchy but when wet can notice eggshelling with loads of fine cracks.

    So I will be painting it eventually, I'm presuming normal paint won't prevent the egg shelling effect when wet?

    So what's the best way to get a good finish?

    Thanks in advance

    You need to research PLIOLITE masonry paint.

    Hi, thanks I just did.

    Doesn't sound at all what I need, said mainly used for commercial painting.

    I just need something which will cover the hairline cracks

    I'll try get some when light and wet..

    I think it's quite new no more than 18.months max, just a bad job.
