Elastomeric Coating For Stucco
In our Northern California climate, elastomeric coating for stucco is a highly viable option. Elastomeric is essentially liquid rubber that is long lasting on stucco surfaces. It is an extremely flexible and thick coating that is designed to expand and contract over hairline fractures within the stucco. For dry and hot climates like Arizona, this type of coating is not ideal. However, in The Sac and surrounding area, the cool, moisture filled air and cloudy skies make elastomeric the perfect coating to use on your stucco surface. Elastomeric is moisture dirt and mildew resistant.
Temperatures in this area fluctuate wildly. This area can experience temps from 46 degrees in the AM to 76 degrees in the height of the afternoon. We are prone to rain, clouds, cold and sun all in one day. In this part of the state we suffer through 6 months of rain from October through April. Followed by hot and dry summers. To withstand these climate variations, you need a stucco coating that can roll with the punches. Elastomeric is the answer for stucco, roofs and ceilings in Northern California. Given the extremely flexible properties of elastomeric, you can easily see how it is perfectly suited for our climate and your stucco.
Due to the high volume of rain that we receive on a frequent basis, elastomeric is an ideal remedy for your stucco surface. Elastomeric yields a polished appearance while warding off moisture. If you have a home that has been beaten up by the weather, contact us for a complimentary consultation. We will be able to determine if elastomeric is right for you. Stucco is a very popular building material in California. If your business is housed in a stucco building, we recommend using elastomeric to protect it and prolong the life of the structural surface. Other coatings are not as durable as elastomeric.
The highly flexible nature of elastomeric allows it to bridge cracks in your stucco’s surface. The substance literally stretches over the surface cracks, then prevents moisture from permeating. This is perfect for older building that have settled and shifted due to gravity, poorly constructed foundations and earth quakes. Once elastomeric is applied, you won’t even be able to tell that the crack was ever there. This substance has what is known in the industry as ‘superior hide’. Hide refers to the thickness of the substance once dried. The thicker the hide, the less coats necessary. This allows the painter to finish the job faster and is economical for you since, most jobs are billed hourly.
Protection for Wind Driven Rain
There is nothing like cold, hard rain hitting your face. You know what it feels like against your skin. Now imagine what its doing to your building, year after year, day in and day out. The stretchable qualities of elastomeric make it the perfect substance to withstand wind driven rain. The drastic fluctuations we experience in temperatures force your building to expand and contract frequently. You need a coating and paint substance that can handle major temperature variations. If your building were located in southern Florida or Arizona, we would totally rule against elastomeric. Alas, you’re in the beautiful Northern CA area, therefore we can totally vouch for this substance to protect your asset.
