How to integrate downspout
To carry out the work of integrating the downspout, we will use the same products to cover both materials.
Step by step to integrate a downspout:
To conveniently prepare the PVC surface for subsequent painting, we will have to review the entire downspout with a fine grain sandpaper.
Then, we remove the dust that has been produced when sanding with a cloth moistened with alcohol and cover the areas that we do not want to stain, with protective plastic and masking tape.
Now, we will apply a multipurpose primer to the water with which we will prepare and protect the surface. In hard-to-reach areas we will use a flat pallet and flat brush, protecting the wall with a cardboard to avoid staining.
On the rest of the surface we will work with a foam roller.
After the drying time, we give a hand of acrylic enamel to the water, in our case white, easy to apply. On this occasion we have opted for a quick-drying and odorless enamel, suitable for protecting and decorating metal, wood, plaster and cement surfaces, both indoors and outdoors.
Before the paint dries, we remove the bodybuilder tape and the protective plastic.
With a little color, and in a quick and simple way, we have integrated the PVC downpipe into the basement considerably improving its appearance.
