Preparing The Home For Ceramic Coating

Written by Roxanne Ecklund on May 10, 2014

The Paint Quality Institute recommends these guidelines to prepare a home for elastomeric ceramic coating:

  1. Remove all dirt, mildew and chalk; treat  mildew with a 3:1 water:bleach solution, leaving on for 20 minutes, then  rinse thoroughly; careful power washing with plain water (no cleaning  agent or bleach added), being sure to not drive water into any openings  there may be in the existing coating.
  2. Seal all cracks and openings using a quality acrylic or siliconized acrylic caulk.
  3. Check entire surface for  blistering or other adhesion loss.
  4. Carefully remove any blistering or  failing coating; seal the edge of the surrounding remaining coating  with a quality acrylic latex caulk.
  5. Identify any source of  intruding water or moisture that may have caused the blistering or other  adhesion loss, and eliminate it.

Georgia Coatings then applies a layer of primer sealer over the surface before applying the final coat elastomeric ceramic coating, which can be as much as 10 times thicker than ordinary house paint, for a finish so strong that you’ll never paint again.
