AbstractMasonry surfaces can be successfully painted if the correct type of coating is used for the substrate in question and if good design and construction have prevented leaks and openings in the structure. In such cases, coatings not only improve the appearance, but also give some protection by preventing rain penetration. If a wall remains dry its thermal conductivity is retained and it may not be subject to other problems associated with wetness. When design or construction practices are faulty, organic coatings cannot be expected to remedy the situation.
