Can somebody who is knowledgeable about stonework help me please.
I have two small walls I want to repoint (nothing major, just cosmetic stuff). What product do I need to use please, I've not done this before.
I don't mind mixing it myself, as I'm not worried about colour-matching batches as I will be painting them (it's very dark stone and I want to lighten the room). So can anybody tell me exactly what product I need to buy please? I'm hoping it's something I can just add water to and stir, and not something I need to add a bit of this and a bit of that
Which brings me onto my second question. A friend told me ages ago that I would need to use a particular paint, otherwise it would just all flake off. Can anybody tell me what paint I need to use (what it's called in English and what it's called in French would be really helpful).
My final question (I will stop soon, promise!) ..... do I need to use that special paint on an upstairs wall too? Or is it just necessary downstairs due to damp? (I get damp on the downstairs walls - don't we all?! - but no problems upstairs).
Hope I haven't put you to sleep
