and correct potential problems before the job even starts. When it
comes to DIY projects, there is a lot of on the job training. Africa
Waterproofing & Painting on the other hand have “been there, done
that”. Our experience helps us to handle prep work, painting, and
clean ups much faster that the average business of home owner – with
and interior painting share many characteristics, the paints
themselves are formulated differently. The binders and additives in
outdoor paint are formulated to resist the elements well, while
indoor paint most likely will not.
The materials of the home’s facade should be
considered before painting your home. When painting flat surfaces
like siding or wood, you can opt for standard outdoor paint. When
painting a textured surface like stucco or brick, “elastomeric” paint
is a much better choice. This type of paint can stretch more than
normal paint, which allows it to bridge over small gaps and crevices,
painting smoothly over texture.
Climate is another factor to consider.
Sunlight, wind, rain and salty weather can all wear out exterior
paint. Oil-based paint is durable against wind, rain and temperature
changes, but sunlight tends to degrade it. Alkyd paint chalks and
sheds very thin layers when it begins to wear. Latex paint is the
more durable option for very sun-drenched and relatively dry climate
areas. Latex paint with high vinyl content should be avoided,
however. Acrylic resin is by far the more durable binder for outdoor
Areas that are
subject to a lot of moisture, like the skirting around houses, may
require mould-resistant paint, like outdoor paint with fungicide
added. Another specialty paint to consider is a flame-resistant
brand. Paint that resists fire rather than combusting could be a life
saver for homeowners in wildfire-prone areas.
Though buying high-quality, specialty paint
and hiring a professional house painter to apply it can be expensive,
the investment will pay off with a high-quality, long-lasting paint
job. Low-quality paint often lasts half as long as high-quality paint
and even shorter if it's not applied properly.
