    Advantages and Disadvantages of Elastomeric Wall Coating

    As a property manager, curb appeal and structural integrity are high priorities. How you choose to maintain your building’s exterior affects both. While it is important that your building looks nice, it means very little if you have to repaint sooner than you should due to peeling, degradation, and water intrusion. This is why you should consider elastomeric wall coatings. Elastomeric coatings will protect your building from the elemental exposure for years to come.

    The Advantages of Elastomeric Wall Coating

    Elastomeric coatings are a high-grade option that can be ten times thicker than paint, but you might not notice the difference visually. This coating offers several advantages, including the following:

    • Watertight
    • Long-lasting
    • More flexible
    • Higher solid content
    • Better warranties

    Elastomeric coatings can work on masonry, concrete, stucco, brick, metal, and other common building materials. It provides a more secure coating that improves weather resistance. With enhanced longevity and material performance warranties, you do not have to worry about repainting every three to five years. Weather changes and structural settling can force paint to stretch, which leads to cracking and peeling. Elastomeric wall coating can not only flex with the building’s changes, but it also has memory to better manage the substantial expansion and contraction our buildings experience in Colorado conditions.

    The Disadvantages of Elastomeric Wall Coating

    For some clients, a major disadvantage to elastomeric wall coating is the initial cost. The higher initial cost comes because of its beneficial aspects over paint, still, it can initially cost up to 25% or more than standard paint. Another disadvantage is that it requires more expertise than your common painter might possess.  Elastomeric is not the right solution for every building, and it requires an expert who understands how to qualify the right application.  We have the expertise it takes to determine your needs and make the appropriate recommendation specific to your property conditions.

    Many of the disadvantages to elastomeric coating come from people attempting to apply it without experience. At Denver Commercial Property Services, we have the correct people, knowledge, and equipment to get the job done right!
