Create more kerb appeal for your property with this two-step guide from Hammerite for transforming tired and rusty exterior iron railings…

Step one: Use a wire brush to remove all flakes. These flakes will be either rust or previous paint surface coming off. Once all loose matter is removed, wash with a mild detergent before rinsing and leaving to dry thoroughly.

Step two: Make sure the area around the railings is protected from potential drips and spills. Using a brush, apply Hammerite Direct to Rust Metal Paint to the railings. Begin with one thin coat and add another when the first has dried completely.
