Waterproof Coatings

Posted on 10 February, 2013 at 14:37
This is an illustration of the body of a house in Oakland, CA that after preparation, priming, and application of 2 coats of an elastomeric waterproof coating before painting. The stucco on this house had several cracks, failing paint, and dry rot problems due to water penetration. I painted this house 5 years ago and it still looks great.
Elastomeric Waterproof Coatings
 
If the exterior siding on your home is stucco, you may have experienced troubles related to cracking. These cracks are not just reduced to eyesores; they give rain the opportunity to enter your walls, causing thousands of dollars worth of damage.  When water makes its way into a crack and freezes, it only worsens the situation. Recurring cracks in stucco are usually caused a couple of different situations (a) a loose lathe job (paper & wire) under the stucco or (b) ground movement under the foundation of your home.
 
 The solution to these cracks is Elastomeric waterproof protective coatings. Applied in very thick films that seal out moisture, Elastomeric coatings also link existing cracks and avoid additional cracks from developing, enhancing the attractiveness of your home for many years to come.  Applying 2 coats of Elastomeric paint over a good, quality stucco conditioner results in the cracks being filled and prevents any water from penetrating the walls.
 
Most commonly used exterior acrylic latex paints which are applied at 12- 15 mils thick, Elastomeric wall coatings get applied at 25-60 dry film thickness and up to 4 to 5 times better resistance to weathering. The advantage of this is that these flexible coatings will expand and cover any cracks that open up in your masonry as the temperature drops. When temperatures rise back to normal, the Elastomeric coating will contract allowing the siding to return to its original shape without any signs of deficiency.
 
  Advanced Painting Systems painting contractor has been applying coatings since 1978 when he worked for Coatings Unlimited in Hayward, CA. Set up an appointment for a free estimate for protecting your home or your investment property from the elements today.

Thank you for your comment on my waterproof coatings blog. Thirty years ago when i was working for a local Castro Valley Painting Contractor we applied a product called Text-Coat. This product was oil base, dried very hard and when it was sprayed over trim it made it look like stucco. It was guaranteed to stay on your house for 15 years and after 5 to 7 years it would look dirty and when it started to fail it would come off in sheets. I was just doing some residential painting in Oakland CA over this same product Elastomeric is the cure for allot of your text coat problems, especially if it is old, dirty and failing in areas. If you are looking for a reliable painting company to fix your Text-Coat problems see my next blog.

I have learned newer and more effective things via your website. One other thing I'd like to say is always that newer personal computer operating systems usually allow a lot more memory to be utilized, but they furthermore demand more memory simply to work. If one's computer is not able to handle more memory and also the newest application requires that ram increase, it is usually the time to buy a new Personal computer. Thanks. my sources
