I am interested in testimonials from those who have used Liquid Ceramic exterior coating. We are considering it for new construction, but my husband is a bit skeptical. Sharing your experience - good or bad - would certainly help with our decision.

I have not used nor do I know anyone that has as it is not widely sold in my area.

But i do have some thoughts on it from what i have heard around the paint industry.

Does it have enough ceramic to make a diference?

What is the ceramic suppose to do for the coating?

Also bear in mind that ceramic is hard and brittle and you really don't want that type of finish on the exterior of a house as it will be more prone to cracking and peeling.

You can't go wrong with a 100 percent acylic system on a new house and be sure to get two finish coats over the primer and i would use an acrylic primer as well, unless you are useing cedar or redwood and then you would want to use oil based primer.

Hope this helps out.

Responding to the question about the quality of Liquid Ceramic. I am a professional architect who purchased a dealership for Liquid Ceramic in the Carolinas. I have applied the product to numerous homes and am extremely pleased, as my clients are, with the results.

Liquid Ceramic is not brittle as I have heard many uninformed people report. It has over twice the solids content of the best paints on the market, and the ingredients are top quality. No chalk, which is the thickener that most paints use.

Liquid Ceramic breathes, letting damaging moisture out but is rated to stop penetration from a 98 mph wind driven rain; is mold and mildew resistant (as recently verified by the maintenance engineer I spoke with at the Sheridan hotel in the Bahamas who tested it against leading paints for over a year); has ceramic microspheres engineered into the product to provide a thermal barrier. Bob Vila sought out Liquid Ceramic for its thermal properties, Liquid Ceramic did not knock on his door.

There is more. Check us out at www.liquid-ceramic.com or write me at [email protected]

Why? When you are building new would you use a coating product designed to minimize maintenance on older EXISTING painted siding. Get a low maintenance product like stucco, hardie siding or any number of others. I don't get it.

Can liquid ceramic exterior house paints be used on concrete and stucco homes in Florida? How does the paint stand up to the tropical weather and strong UV?
