Lime Wash for Brick, Stone, and any Masonry
The Project Scope:
CertaPro Painters of Greater Media has painted interior/exterior brick and stone surfaces with Romabio Classico Lime Wash. We think it is better than paint or the smear process and here’s why.
Whitewashed brick exteriors are gorgeous and have a charming Old World feel. They have a freshly painted look, but because some of the brick remains exposed, the warmth and quality of it endure. In Europe, the iconic whitewash effect was created over hundreds of years of traditional limewash application, but now you can achieve this look naturally and beautifully overnight. Limewash is aged like a fine wine, slaked, and then specially formulated to be applied like traditional paint. Different than any other paint or whitewash process, it is an authentic slaked-lime paint that can instantly be washed off to create the exposed brick look you want. Unlike acrylic paint, or the German smear technique using mortar, it is made to last on the exterior and calcifies to a rock-solid finish so it won’t peel, chip, or flake off with little maintenance. It will transform your home to the look you want in an easy, one coat application and wash off process
How we got it done:
The Limewash is typically applied as a one-coat, easy process with no need for an additional primer. CertaPro of Media dampens the masonry surface just prior to painting, allowing preparation, cleaning, and painting of your surface all on the same day. Results are best when applied with a large masonry brush or a traditional paint sprayer.
Low Maintenance & Fewer Repaints
Because Classico Limewash is highly permeable and breathable, it calcifies to the brick creating an extremely durable finish that will not peel, chip, or flake off. It will continue to patina over time and can last decades without having to repaint or maintain the finish. Due to the high pH of the paint, it is naturally mold-resistant and has a high UV and fade resistance allowing the color to keep its depth and quality over time.
Removeable for No Stress
Classico Limewash can be wiped or washed off immediately after application. With the use of a high force pressure washer, the entire application can easily be removed up to 5-days following the initial application. This allows you to test the product on the masonry surface and remove it if you want a different look. It can also easily be touched up because of the very flat finish, allowing for a no-stress process
