For homeowners, painting the exterior of your home is the most common way to enhance the look of your home… but at what expense? Most homeowners don’t know that painting the exterior stucco of your home is not the correct way to protect your house from the elements or make it energy efficient. In fact painting over stucco will take away stucco’s natural make-up and breath ability. Paint is a coating and acts like a mask. Because of it’s thickness, it does not readily penetrate things that it covers and at the same time it does not allow moisture to freely pass thru which eventually cause stucco damage and wood rot to the sheathing or framing and water vapor may even be pulled into the house.
The other problem is that paint does not have the same characteristics and durability it had 30 years ago. In fact petroleum based paints (which was a great protector of wood) is NO LONGER legal to use on the exterior of homes and water based paints just do not provide enough protector for your home.
“So what’s the Solution?”
As a homeowner you have two solutions. You can either re-stucco every 10 to 12 years (which can be time consuming and messy endeavor) or you can get a lifetime coating that is quickly becoming the most popular and affordable way to protect and upgrade the exterior of your home. Lifetime coating products are found on some of today’s most prestigious buildings, landmarks, and homes throughout the world.
