Frosting

FrostingCAUSES: Usually forms in protected areas not receiving cleaning rains. Dark colors over paint or primer using excessive extender pigments. Mistaken for efflorescence.

 

SOLUTIONS: Remove frosting with a wire brush on masonry and sanding on wood. Rinse thoroughly with a garden hose. For best and quickest results, use a power washer. Frosting often will bleed through new paint if an alkyd-based primer isn’t used.
