/ Painting advice
Have just repaired son cracks in the rendering of the house I have been doing up. Just the painting of the outside to be done now if we get a decent few days of summer!!! The gable end faces the prevailing wind and rain is there some sort of waterproof paint I can put on as a belts and braces gesture or will normal masonry paint be ok.
Spray a silane-based water repellent on the outside, after painting it? Will make re-painting it harder though. Usually lasts about a year before needing to be re-applied. Not sure why normal masonry paint won't be enough though.
Normal masonry paint, but don't buy a cheap one as it won't have the right amounts of fungicide, UV absorber and whatnot.
That’s the question if normal masonry paint would be enough?
Any recommendations all the other houses I’ve painted I used sandex

before painitng - surely...
needs to penetrate into the brick/stone/conc
although that would be belt and braces because you would normally use sealer if you were leaving it as exposed brick/stone/cost
