A smarter line of exterior paints for your home
Paint that delivers a real alternative to replacement.
Instead of trying to do everything, each of our exterior paints excels at one thing.
Stucco requires flexibility, while your aluminum siding requires hardness for long term durability. How can one coating deliver both, effectively? For best results, we strategically formulate an exterior paint for the unique properties of a specific exterior surface. Our goal is to deliver not just durable results that won't peel, but a brand-new looking finish that doesn't look recoated at all. Through customization, we ensure long term performance and a finish that respects the unique beauty and texture of your surface.
More of the good stuff & no fillers in our exterior paint
Having a thick paint is great, but what matters even more is the composition or "stuff" inside of the paint. Premium exterior paints can contain high volume solids, but a portion of those solids are fillers, like sodium bicarbonate (yes, baking soda)! Since they can't actually grip onto the surface, fillers do little to protect your home and simply powder off. Instead, we formulate our exterior paint so that a film of only pigments, binders and additives is left protecting your home.
These ain't no conventional latex paints.
Our exterior paint is formulated for performance, not bulk manufacturing. Since we sell curb appeal and not paint itself, we can invest in the latest coating technology and top-of-the-line ingredients to equip our painters with the premium paint they need to deliver factory-quality results on siding, doors and windows.
THE CHEMISTRY OF OUR EXTERIOR PAINTS
- Acrylic DispersionOur paint for siding is a 100% acrylic resin dispersion that bonds fiercely to aluminum, fiber cement and engineered wood siding. High elasticity allows our acrylic bend expand and contract with siding to prevent peeling, chipping and cracking.
- PolyurethanePolyurethanes are a molecular chain of urethanes used when ultra-durability is needed. Our two-component coating entangles polymer chains to create a tight microscopic bond that can effectively combat UV rays, abrasions and washing season after season.
- Elastomeric Co-Polymer EmulsionBreathability, flexibility, waterproofing and high-build coverage come together to create the ultimate exterior paint for stucco.
- Silicate StainOur silicate mineral brick stain forms a chemical and mechanical bond with brick to ensure permanent results and natural, breathable finish.
The benefits of all our exterior paints & coatings
They might be engineered to do different things,
but all of our coatings beautify your home while minimizing the upkeep.
A durable finish you can safely wash
Our coatings result in a durable finish that can stand up to washing season after season. And because all of our exterior house paints are surfactant-free, you don't have to worry about any sticky residue affecting the paint film after washing with chemical detergents.
A completely crosslinked finish for factory-quality hardness
The tight interlocking of polymer chains creates an extremely durable finish that won’t peel and has the ability to fight fading, chalking and even surface abrasions caused by wind-driven rain. Instead of a regular paint job, you get a factory finish without all the maintenance.
Powerful resistance to keep your home looking brand-new
All of our exterior paints are formulated with advanced solar-reflective technology, water-repellent and stain-blocking abilities and tough resistance to chemical agents to keep your home looking its best.
Exterior paint that makes your surface look brand-new... not repainted.
Each one of our exterior paints is meant to renew and rejuvenate the unique beauty of a surface. While that means stucco will need added texture and siding required a smooth, even finish, what all of our exterior paints have in common is the ability to leave a surface looking it was never recoated at all.
Why don’t you paint wood?
Wood is an organic, living material. Like all living things, organic surfaces must breathe a lot and by applying a coating over it, this breathing room will be reduced. The natural tendency for the wood to breathe and move would eventually cause the paint to chip and peel. Not to mention, there’s actually no added benefit of spraying wood since its porous nature doesn’t allow for a smooth factory finish and what we’re going for.
Finally, when we give you a quote for your project during your consultation, we give you an exact fixed price that won’t change so you can determine whether a Spray-Net revamp makes sense in terms of your budget. It is difficult to estimate how long it will take to strip wood, so we wouldn’t be able to give you a fixed and exact quote ahead of time which doesn’t coincide with our promise to you.
Why don’t you paint sliding windows?
Sliding windows, unlike the manual variety that crank open, will slide back and forth in a track. Due to the friction of the sliding window within its track, this puts immense strain on the coating, and we can’t guarantee that it could withstand the abuse. Since we warranty our work for 15 years against peeling, we cannot offer a permanent solution for sliding windows. Unfortunately for this reason, we don’t provide estimates for sliding windows, as this is not a surface we can deliver the Spray-Net promise on.
Why can’t you repair a rusted surface by applying putty and then sanding it?
When you see rust on your front door, it’s often too late to save it. When you can actually see the rust, it means that the metal has already corroded behind the paint film. At this point, even after removing the rust, there’s no way to guarantee that it won’t come back and can jeopardize the lifespan of a paint job. For this reason, we avoid all rusted surfaces. If we can’t confidently stand behind our work, we’d rather not set false expectations.
Why can’t you paint a surface that has already been repainted?
We offer homeowners a permanent factory finish that serves as an alternative to replacement. If we can’t fulfill this promise to you, then we simply don’t take on the project. Delivering on the Spray-Net promise is very important to us. In the case of brick, if pores are already saturated with a coating, it’s virtually impossible for the brick to absorb our stain. Like stripping wood, the time needed to strip paint off aluminum and vinyl siding is indeterminate. It can actually take DAYS to completely remove several coats of paint. If a project takes days, then it’s not likely to be cost-effective.
“Just paint over it” you say? Well, if we paint over an existing coat of paint, the aggressive nature of our coatings to maximize adhesion might actually pull away at the less-resistant latex paint. If the original paint film comes off, then the outermost coat of paint (ours) would also come off with it.
What’s the finish of your exterior paint?
For aluminum and vinyl exterior siding, we strike the perfect balance between a matte and glossy finish to minimize the appearance of surface imperfections and to create a like-new washable finish. These types of custom finishes are not available with conventional paints limited to matte, satin, or semi-gloss. For doors and windows, we follow the same gloss standards as the door and window industry so that they look like they’ve just arrived from the factory!
What’s the difference between spray-applied paint and electrostatic paint?
Most people confuse the difference between spray-applied paint and electrostatic paint. Electrostatic paint is typically oil-based and is commonly used in the industrial sector to paint difficult to paint shapes, like cylinders. These objects need to be made of a high conducting metal such as steel. Using an electrical charge, paint is propelled toward the surface to create a perfect even finish. This isn’t necessary (or possible) in the residential sector because we use non-toxic water-based products and the surfaces that we revamp have very little to no conductivity so it wouldn’t work anyway. The water content of our products, as well as the painting of mostly non-metal surfaces, wouldn’t allow for a sufficient electrical charge. The big appeal of electrostatic painting is the low-overspray property of the technique, but all of our paints and coatings are specifically designed for spray application. Combined with our spray equipment, this technique results in a high transfer efficiency and minimal amount of overspray. When it comes to painting the exterior of a home, we’ve formulated the ideal products and have mastered the optimal techniques to deliver a like-new and durable factory finish.
What types of Exterior surfaces do you paint?
- Aluminum, fiber cement, vinyl, and engineered wood sidings
- Stucco and aggregate
- Front and garage doors
- Soffits, fascias, and gutters
These surfaces will be coated with paints customized according to the material and weather. The paints allow for durability, washability, UV resistance, high-traffic scratch resistance, and flexibility.
What type(s) of Kitchen Cabinets do you paint?
Our paint for kitchen cabinets can be used on laminate, melamine, thermofoil/plastic, and wood kitchen cabinets. As needed, we use one of our two proprietary kitchen primers depending on the surface, as well as our eco-friendly chemical and mechanical preparation process to ensure adhesion on each surface!
What kind of products do you use?
We are an eco-friendly painting company that uses our own exclusive line of low VOC, water-based, and industrial-strength exterior paints and coatings. All of our products fall under all government VOC limits. Each of our exterior and kitchen paints and coatings are uniquely tailored for each surface and for a specific method of application, and they all contain a unique blend of additives and superior inorganic pigments that allow us to achieve the desired results per surface that we’re revamping!
Since factory paint is “baked,” is your paint as scratch resistant?
When painting doors and windows for manufacturers, IR lamps are used to artificially accelerate the curing process. This specific technique is necessary since the demands of the commercial market require quick packaging and delivery of products. To bring the same one-day permanent factory results to the residential sector, we’ve formulated our exclusive paints and coatings so that they become dry to the touch within 15-30 minutes of application, depending on the weather. In a short time, the paint film achieves a factory OEM level of hardness. With the help of the sun’s natural UV rays, the paint fully cures and achieves maximum hardness and durability in the days that follow. The sun’s natural UV rays are just as effective as a forced factory cure. When needed in unideal weather conditions, however, we can produce a forced bake for front doors in our mobile spray booth, since this high-traffic surface requires a quicker full cure. Our industrial grade formulations coupled with an optimal application process is what allows our coatings to be as scratch and mar resistant as factory coatings.
Is there anything else that is unique to Spray-Net compared to your competitors?
Spray-Net offers the most customized paint job on the market. What that means for you is the most durable job for the price. This is made possible by combining a variety of our tools, processes, and proprietary product development. We even created a software called the Spray Network, used internally by all Spray-Netters. It takes into consideration the weather conditions, temperature, and humidity on the application day in order to customize the coating to ensure our factory finish and 15-year warranty against peeling. We also take into account where the coating will be applied on the home with regards to sun exposure and high-touch areas (such as doors) and adjust our coating formulation accordingly. We use non-organic pigments, which do not degrade and fade over time. This means that our colors stay brighter and last longer, even with direct UV expose.
Our paints differ as well by application. For instance, our brick coating is a stain that penetrates the brick, allowing it to breathe and last longer than a typical paint, which sits on the surface and traps moisture and peels within a couple of years. Our stucco coating is 15-times thicker and has a rubberier feel to evenly coat the texture of the stucco. Our vinyl shield coating has been formulated to allow darker color applications and to not warp with heat and UV exposure over time. Our line of kitchen cabinet coatings is hard enough to resist scratches but soft enough for daily wear and tear to prevent chipping. Custom paint for smarter painting!
Is Spray-Net the only one on the market who can paint on aluminum and vinyl siding, stucco and hardie-board, front and garage doors, windows, and brick?
Spray-Net isn’t the only company that paints aluminum and vinyl siding, stucco, hardie board, doors and windows, or brick. However, through years of research and rigorous testing and working with paint chemists, we have created custom formulations for each specific application. We can confidently offer a 15-year no-peel warranty on all of our applications with our custom coatings and patented process. Spray-Net is the only company delivering a factory durable finish on each of these surfaces, as it’s the only thing we do, all day, every day!
How many coats of paint do you apply?
Unlike the traditional brush and roller method, spray-applied painting is measured according to paint thickness rather than the number of coats. Depending on the specific exterior coating that we’re using, paint thickness can vary between 4 and 20 mils. A thicker paint film doesn’t automatically mean it will be more durable; it all depends on what we’re trying to achieve for a final product’s properties.
You can be sure that our expert painting crews are equipped with the knowledge, products, and experience to produce a permanent factory finish… every time.
How do you control your spray paint so it doesn’t just go everywhere?
All of our products are specifically formulated and optimized for our spray equipment, resulting in a high transfer efficiency. This means that paint ends up on the surface and not in the air. To deal with the minimal amount of overspray that does occur, we’ve taken extra precaution and have formulated our paints and coatings with dry-fall technology, which causes paint particles suspended in mid-air to literally dry up and fall to the ground. All of our team members are trained to use a specific exterior spray painting technique and process that reduces the amount of overspray in the air, and finally, we make sure to cover all surrounding areas such as shrubs, flowers, decks and patio furniture.
Do you offer a wide variety of colors?
We have a wide variety of colors for you to choose from, each specifically formulated for exterior use and formulated with optimal fade resistance in mind. We use a combination of the most popular standard siding and door and window colors to provide maximum durability against premature fading and discoloration, as well as to apply the finishing touch of matching-colored caulking.
Although we can match any exterior paint color you have in mind, we can’t always provide the same optimal fade resistance or a matching caulking color. Finally, we work with an experienced designer every year to help us come up with the latest color trends and ultra-stylish exterior color palettes… an added perk that our customers really appreciate!
