Designed for high-performance and specially made for masonry.
ROMABIO has specially formulated our mineral and lime paints for brick, stone, concrete, and other masonry surfaces. They are the only paints that will give you a beautiful and natural flat, chalky, or antique limewash finish without sacrificing the durability, longevity, and low maintenance that you love about your brick.
Mineral and lime paint products are not new, and have been used largely in Europe and Asia for centuries. Historically they last up to 50 years and are the most durable and high-performing paints available for masonry.
Most paints recommended for brick and masonry surfaces are acrylic based products. Acrylic paints are not natural or breathable. They are created from acrylic resins which is a petroleum based product and they act more like plastic when applied to a surface. They prohibit breathability and because of their molecular structure, they can create damage to certain surface types, including brick. They can also peel or chip, and to keep the same look over time, you have to repaint every 3 – 7 years.
Brick is a natural and breathable building material that allows water vapor to easily permeate, and holds up structurally better than other materials. Builders, architects, and homeowners love brick, because it is low maintenance, eco-friendly, structurally strong, and has a beautiful look. Three out of five homeowners prefer brick more than any other exterior material.
