In recent years, Exterior Limewash has become increasingly popular again as people have recognized the damage caused by the use of modern masonry paints and due to the ongoing recommendations from home design/improvement companies.
Exterior Limewash is a popular traditional paint that incorporates lime putty. It offers breathability to surfaces. External surfaces suffer from exposure to the elements and harsh conditions via weathering. Limewash is a coating for external walls to offer superior water permeability. Therefore it is highly suitable for application to wet walls, where the substrate often stores the damp. Exterior Limewash allows the release of water so it can evaporate back into the air. This means the substrate is less susceptible to store water and is far less likely to erode over time.
Limewash is a traditional, high-performance paint that has been used for centuries. This is due to its protective properties and appealing finish. The Traditional Paint Company can tint and colour our Exterior Limewash to almost any traditional or contemporary designer colours. This means you can create a decorative finish to suit your requirements.
This traditional coating is suitable for application on to lime renders. However, by applying a coat of Pozzolan Limewash as a primer, you can apply this painted to most external surfaces. This includes bricks, flint and concrete render, as well as any other surfaces that have an old coat of existing limewash.
