Breathable Masonry Paint

Did you know that not all masonry paints are the same?

Why Use Breathable Masonry Paint?

Moisture caused by water ingress or condensation from within the home can accumulate in the fabric of the building. If this moisture is not able to escape it can lead to issues associated with damp, resulting in long term problems and extra expense.

Modern masonry paints are polymer based. They form a waterproof, plastic like film on the substrate which seals in moisture. With no way to escape this moisture can be drawn back into the building, creating damp patches and mould within the home, or forced out through the exterior paint causing it to fail, blister, peel and flake.

Earles Masonry paint is different. Composed of natural minerals, it is plastic free, vapour permeable and one hundred times more breathable than a standard paint. It works by forming a strong, weatherproof bond to bare masonry. This allows moisture stored within the walls to pass through and evaporate whilst protecting your home from the elements.

With an attractive matt finish, Earles Masonry Paint is tough, durable and extremely long lasting. It can be used with confidence on all masonry surfaces including lime renders and mortars and due to its superior breathability, is suitable for use on listed buildings.
