Can anyone recommend an outdoor masonry paint? And I am wondering if Dryloc should be applied before painting. Last year I used Sears masonry paint and it's already peeling off. So I wonder if I should have used some type of base first.

What type of "masonry" is it you want to paint ?

Hi JasperDale - It is the concrete foundation of a brick house.

There may be better products now that don't require any pre-treatment - but there USED to be a requirement for acid etching concrete before painting.

Perhaps one of the products intended for garage floors would work?

Thanks for the reply 1LT. I am going to Sherwin Williams today to ask questions. I don't want to have to scrape this off again and again.
