Our home is covered on the exterior, with T111 siding when it was built back about 20

years ago. I have to restain about every 5 years. It is past due and I recently heard about Alvis spray on siding. Would anyone have any comments good or bad about this product? I am supposed to meet with the salesperson in about one week.

Thanks

If someting sounds to good to be true it probably is and the claims this company is making are outragous. Lets face it nothing is going to last forever out in the sun. It rally is just an elastomeric coating which were designed for painting masonry and to bridge across the cracks that you get in the type of substrate. It is a very thick coating which is fine if that is what you need but it will add alot of weight to the previous coats and actually cause them to let go and peel off. In my opinion it design more for new surfaces then old because of this potential of peeling.Remember the last coat applied is only as good as the coats before it as far as adhesion, because the last one does not go through and hold all the rest down.

It also is very expensive and from what I have heard in my area you could paint your house at least 4 times for the cost of once with this system.

Hopoe this helps you out.
