Exterior paint and whitewash works make the structure look better aesthetically and make it more beneficial in terms of durability. The climatic conditions in which the building is located and the characteristics of the surface to be worked on are important.
More moisture and water resistant paints, that is, silicone exterior paints, should be preferred for buildings located in regions with heavy rainfall. In buildings that receive less precipitation and are exposed to the sun too much, more light-colored and sun-resistant paints should be used. In addition, in buildings with uneven plaster and in need of renovation, choosing grainy paints instead of plain paints helps to close the surface gaps under the paint.
There are 4 different types of paint used in exterior paint works. These are acrylic exterior paints, silicone exterior paints, grainy exterior paints and elastic exterior paints.
ACRYLIC EXTERIOR PAINTS
Acrylic exterior paints are used as top coat exterior paint. Acrylic exterior paints, which are highly resistant to sunlight, humidity and salt water on the seashore, are easy to apply and one of the most preferred paint types.
SILICONE EXTERIOR PAINT
Silicone exterior paints are one of the most water resistant paint types. Silicone exterior paints with high alkali resistance protect themselves against color change by reflecting the sun’s rays. For this reason, silicone exterior paints provide long-term use after application.
GRAIN EXTERIOR PAINT
Grainy exterior paints, one of the water-based paints, are among the paints applied with a roller and patterned. Grainy exterior paints with self-washing feature are among the most useful paints by cleaning the dust on the surface.
ELASTIC EXTERIOR PAINT
Elastic exterior paints, which are resistant to impacts, are known for their breathable structure.
