Romabio: The Right Paint for Brick
A fresh coat of paint can revitalize your home’s appearance and be one of the best investments you ever make. However, as with any type of home renovation, there are potential pitfalls of which you should be aware. The surest way to avoid these pitfalls is to hire an experienced, knowledgeable painting firm such as Austin Natural Painting.
Hiring the right painters is even more crucial when painting brick or other masonry surfaces. Brick is supposed to breath, allowing air to flow in and out. Painting your brick with traditional latex paint is like encasing it in plastic. The airflow is cut off and moisture is trapped between the paint and the brick. This trapped moisture can cause your brick and mortar to degrade which in turn can lead to bubbling, peeling, and flaking paint. To ensure that you avoid this sort of costly mishap, you need to hire a company such as Austin Natural Painting which specializes in painting brick and masonry with products specifically designed for those surfaces, such as Romabio Mineral Masonry Paints.
Because Romabio’s breathable mineral paints don’t seal the brick, they allow moisture to escape, avoiding the issues with brick erosion and the peeling and flaking that we see with latex paint. Also, because moisture is able to diffuse so easily, surfaces painted with Romabio Masonry Paints are naturally mold resistant. Additionally, Romabio has high-UV resistance which contributes to its industry-leading durability. While most exterior paints require maintenance or repainting every five to ten years, Romabio lasts for decades.
In addition to its durability, there are two more areas where we feel Romabio is clearly superior to latex paints: aesthetic appeal and eco-friendliness. Latex paint will give your brick a synthetic look and feel. Romabio will give your brick a natural look and feel. And because they’re made of 100% natural and sustainable materials, Romabio Masonry Paints are toxin-free, odorless, and hypoallergenic. In short, they are the safest, most environmentally-friendly paints on the market.
Our founder, Doug Gorton, introduced Romabio to Central Texas more than a decade ago, and he has more experience with Romabio’s line of products, including Classico Limewash, than any other painter in the area.
