What we love about Masonry Flat by Romabio

When you use traditional latex paints on brick, you drastically raise the risk of damage taking place over time due to a lack of protection against the elements. The technical term for the damage that occurs with latex on brick, stucco, and stone is called “spalling”. Architects hate this because it creates the potential for moisture to get trapped behind brick and the like, which is when mold growth takes place. This is because latex won’t allow airflow through masonry as it should.

That’s why we love Masonry Flat for masonry projects. It’s made from 100% Dolomite Lime, which is a natural, mineral masonry substance. This means you’re effectively putting masonry on top of masonry, so the two bond and flow together seamlessly.

How to paint a brick house: Latex vs. Masonry Flat

In order to use latex paint, you must prime brick first, but even if you do this, there is no guarantee it won’t bubble out, flake, chip, or peel over time. As a result, you will end up with a massive cost the next time you want to paint because of the need to first strip off the old paint.

Because Masonry Flat is basically liquid masonry, you’re never going to deal with problems like flakiness or peeling. Another advantage of Masonry Flat is that it can go directly on brick and stone surfaces without the need for a primer stage. You’ll simply clean your brick, apply two coats of Masonry Flat, it’s dry within 4-5 hours and you’ll likely never need to come back to it ever again, it’s so low-maintenance.

Another way Masonry Flat beats latex paints

Brick, stucco, and stone lose their natural feel and porosity when painted with latex. As a result, it gives you a plastic look and feels like a synthetic material. This strips away the value of brick, stucco, and stone and devalues your house. Masonry Flat, on the other hand, has the look of paint but maintains the textural integrity of the stone. With Masonry Flat, you get 100% of a natural feel because it is natural.
