There are multiple brands and types of masonry paint available, all aimed at helping cover your external bricks or masonry, smooth them over, and help make your exterior walls more waterproof.
Yet the best exterior masonry paint blocks 95% of moisture from passing through and doesn’t compromise on the aesthetics of your home – you don’t need to cover it in white or coloured paint and lose its original features to protect and warm your property!
The best exterior masonry paint is Home Logic Exterior Wall Insulation.
Home Logic Exterior Wall Insulation is a chemical spray that is applied directly onto external walls and surfaces. It can be applied to brick, sandstone, concrete or mortar, and penetrates up to 17mm into the surface to form a protective barrier.
This barrier impedes water from being absorbed into the surface, increasing its thermal properties greatly. Studies have shown that just 5% damp content within an external surface can reduce its thermal efficiency by up to 50% – so it simply can’t be risked.
The performance of Home Logic Exterior Wall Insulation has been tested and proven using the EN ISO 15148:2002 best practice industry standards.
Masonry Paint Repels Moisture
When surfaces become damp and hold moisture within them, they act as a thermal bridge, transferring more heat through them and amplifying the temperature that affects this.
This makes it extremely easy for the external brickwork or masonry on your home to cool the interior wall cavities, and hinder the performance of internal wall insulation.
Indeed, if moisture is able to pass through the external walls and absorb into interior insulation, it almost entirely depletes its performance, rendering it almost completely ineffective.
