Reviving Metal Railings

Shabby and dirty railings such as these give off a poor first impression of your property. This problem can be easily solved using Hammerite, and once the task is finished it will look good for years to come.

  1. Prepare the railings by abrading them with a wire brush or coarse sandpaper to remove any flaking paint or loose rust.project_06_a
  2. Wash away any grease, dirt or mould with a mild detergent and allow to dry.
  3. Protect the surrounding area from paint splashes using a dust sheet or newspaper.
  4. Using a good quality brush, apply a thin coat of Hammerite Direct to Rust Metal Paint Smooth finish.
  5. Leave to dry for the time specified on the tin before applying a second coat.
  6. If you have bare galvanised metal railings, they can be painted using Hammerite Direct to Galvanised Metal paint.
