Masonry Wall Coatings & Exterior House Painting

Do you have peeling, flaking, or cracked exterior paint?

The regular task of painting the exterior of your house is a hassle that most of us could do without. The process can also become quite costly if it has to be revisited every few years, particularly if there are associated costs, such as hiring scaffolding for hard-to-access areas.

Traditional methods of painting involve the use of a brush or a roller, which is relatively easy to do on a smooth masonry surface. However, painting a house with a rough exterior surface, such as spar dash, roughcast, or pebbledash, can be very difficult. To get decent coverage, multiple coats of paint are required, and even then, some hard-to-reach pockets may have only a thin film of paint due to the way the paint was applied, which isn’t ideal for paint longevity. The high-pressure spray applications we use are perfect for rough exterior masonry surfaces. It is usually possible to install them in one application and achieve a consistent film thickness and professional uniformity.
Exterior painting often requires repairs to the underlying surface as well. There may be cracks that need repairing or blown render that needs hacked off and replaced. These repairs can be challenging to conceal and blend into the surface. As exterior paint is normally applied thinly, any imperfections on the surface of a wall will show through, ruining the appearance of a home’s façade. The exterior wall coating systems we work with are applied many times thicker (up to 40 times the thickness depending on the system) than normal exterior paint, making it easier to cover imperfections and repair work. Surface textures can also increase the exterior coating’s ability to hide scars and other imperfections and create an attractive and uniform appearance.
