Applying this paint improves the structural integrity of buildings with older walls; helping homes that are situated in exposed areas withstand the full force of the elements!

Elastomeric Exterior House Paint: Year Round Property Protection

Elastomeric exterior house paint consists of acrylic latex, which is meant to be applied in very thick layers. These types of paint are around 10 x times thicker than your average paints. The material is extremely tough and flexible, meaning it can stretch more than other materials can.

This is beneficial for buildings with cracks, which may open and close with fluctuating temperatures and conditions.

As the cracks open and close, the elastic paint material bridges the gap and doesn’t crack itself. This keeps water, wind and other elements out, and maintains a smart appearance at all times.

Pros

  • Great elasticity and flexibility
  • Paint will not crack over time
  • Extremely waterproof

            Cons

  • Some variants can affect a property’s breathability
  • More expensive than standard paintjobs
  • Can sometimes leave a rubber-like appearance
