How to paint external grout mortar?

Hi all!

 

We had the front of our heritage home pointed last week (removal of old grout, then re- grouted). Tuck pointing was out of our budget and so hoping that with the grout freshly replaced we may be able fro attempt to add that bright white grout appearance ourselves. 

 

Has anyone here successfully achieved this and can suggest how we could try? 

Thank you!

Re: DYI external grout/mortar painting to white

Hello @MSMR

 

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. It's a pleasure to have you join us, and thank you for sharing your question about painting your external grout to white.

 

Before I make any recommendations, would it be possible for you to post a picture of the newly pointed wall? This will give us an idea of what it looks like. We can then make recommendations on how to proceed. There are a few products that you can use, but we would need to see the size of the gaps.

 

If you have any other questions we can help out with, please don't hesitate to post them.

 

We look forward to seeing the pictures.

 

Eric

Hi @MSMR,

 

Did you need any assistance with sharing some photos of your home so our members can assist with advice on the best approach for painting?

 

Please let me know if we can assist.
