Are there any special procedures to us this product on an exterior concrete block retaining wall?

Make sure you clean "pressure wash" the project really well so the product can penetrate the pores. Youtube has some really helpful videos on projects that came out great. Also I'm sure the label gives directions also.

Answer

I do not think that this product will be suitable for your needs. a flat surface will be walked upon and wear faster also the rain / snow will dissolve the entire finish quicker. Basically it is a powder that is mixed with water and applied to the surface. Any exterior application will wear faster than an interior one. Ask the Home Depot paint experts for advice on your needs.

Can you add 5% Portland Concrete to increase durability and longevity?

Asked by Yrudointhis2me May 2, 2021

Answers

I’m not an expert, but did a lot of reading on limewash, and wouldn’t think that’s a good idea. Limewash soaks into the brick, calcifies to it, and still allows the brick to breathe, unlike paint. It would seem the concrete would possibly prevent that. If you’re looking for more of a paint, Romabio also make a mortar paint that I believe lasts 20 years or so Hope this helps you

Answer

Classico Limewash is not recommended for your situation. If it's chipped you may want to remove or repair before using anything else, but we have a primer called Romabio MicroGrip Primer you can use first, then Romabio Masonry Flat over it. These two products are not yet sold in Home Depot. Visit www.romabio.com for more information.

Yes if mixed with a drill mixer and properly diluted to avoid clogging the sprayer.

Purchased 2 bucket's of the .67 gal & they covered around 360 square feet. Painted the brick on front porch which was orange from the 60's. It was a hot day around 86 & have to make sure to keep the brick wet so the paint will spread. I was super nervous about mixing the paint, but, followed the directions on the bucket & was perfect. Took about 5 hours. Not sure if you're not supposed to wash it off, but, we didn't because we loved the color. It was distressed enough without washing it off. Neighbors kept stopping & saying how good it looks. Lol. Happy with results. Worst part is prepping, masking windows & trim.

I used this product to wash the front exterior of my home in order to refresh the look. We’ve had several neighbors stop by to ask how we did it, and they were impressed by the final work. I would recommend Romobio to anyone that wants to update their home

My drab little house has been transformed into a beautiful "cottagey" home.
Lime washing my brick exterior was easier and more forgiving than painting. I am thrilled with the result. My mixture was basically 50/50 Romabio's Avario color to water. I purchased the 4 gallon size, and it was plenty for my 1140 sqft., 4 sided brick house. I've included before and after photos of my home.

Absolutely love it!! The look is amazing and so easy to apply. However it does rub off or scratched with a finger nail after a month already. We know it can give a distressed look but how much? Not sure how this could ever hold up outside.
