Waterproof Paint

Waterproof paint refers to paint that repels water, helping to protect exterior surface from damage caused by water ingress. Most waterproof paints have been designed for exterior walls, such as Emperor Masonry Paint, which is completely water repellent, highly breathable, self-cleaning & comes with a lifetime guarantee. This is because is contains the latest super hydrophobic technology that ensures that the paint is extremely durable in any conditions. The waterproofing properties help to prevent damp, heat loss & peeling paint, as moisture is the number one cause of failure in standard exterior paints.

What Is Waterproof Paint?

Waterproof paint as the name would suggest, waterproofs exterior surfaces to prevent the damaging impact that water can have on your property. Waterproof paints come in a range of forms, from exterior walls to roofs. What is important to remember about waterproof paints is that there less genuinely waterproof products then you would expect. This is because almost all exterior paints say they have weatherproof abilities, or offer protection from the weather. While this is true, as many paints can help to protect exterior surfaces, these products are very rarely waterproof, which refers to their ability to completely prevent water from entering a surface. Most exterior paints will absorb moisture to some extent, while completely waterproof paints such as Emperor Masonry Paint will completely repel water from a surface, not allowing it to soak into the painted surface at all.

What Waterproof Products Are Available?

The Prep product range covers a range of decorating essentials. Here at Painters World we stock:

Is Acrylic Paint Waterproof?

While providing some water-resistance, acrylic paints do not automatically repel water to make it waterproof.

Will Paint Waterproof Wood?

Generally, exterior wood paints are weather resistant. This means that while they do not repel water, which would make them waterproof, they do offer some level of protection from moisture. Examples of weather resistant wood paints include Sadolin Superdec & Dulux Trade Weathershield High Gloss.

To completely waterproof wood, you must use a water repellent treatment such as a super hydrophobic wood impregnator. These are generally specialist products and require a professional to apply them.

The Price of Waterproof Paint

While waterproof paints are often premium formulations, they do not necessarily cost substantially more than non-waterproof paints. Emperor Paint for example is a similar price to non-waterproof paints that offer similar longevity.
