exterior walls

Horizontal surfaces like awnings, chajjas, terrace borders, etc. should be given one additional coat for better protection as these areas are prone to water accumulation.

No interior primer, putty or plaster of paris should be applied under the exterior finishes. Doing so will affect the performance of the paint.
