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
Our 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.
Polyurethanes 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 Emulsion
Breathability, flexibility, waterproofing and high-build coverage come together to create the ultimate exterior paint for stucco.
Our 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, and this just isn’t possible if we apply a coating to it. The natural tendency for the wood to breathe 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.
Finally, when we give you a quote for your project during your consultation, we give you an exact, fixed cost that won’t change so you can determine whether a Spray-Net revamp makes sense in terms of your budget. You never know 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.
Why don’t you paint sliding windows?
Sliding windows, unlike the manual variety that cranks open, will slide back and forth in a track.
Due to the friction of the sliding window within its track, the paint will end up chipping and peeling over time and with continued use. Since we guarantee 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 paint.
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 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. This can jeopardize the lifespan of a paint job and for this reason, we avoid all rusted surfaces.
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. 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 aluminum and vinyl siding of paint is indeterminate. It can actually take DAYS to completely remove several coats of paint. If a project takes days, then it’s no longer cost-effective.
“Just paint over it” you say? Well, if we paint over an existing coat of paint, the aggressive additives that we add to all of our paints and coatings for maximum adhesion might actually chip away at the less-resistant latex paint. If the original paint film chips and flakes, then the outermost coat of paint will chip and flake 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 shiny finish to minimize the appearance of surface imperfections and to create a like-new, washable finish. For doors and windows, we follow the same gloss standards as the door and window industry: 35%, or what people typically refer to as a “satin” or “semi-gloss” finish.
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 oil-based and is commonly used in the industrial sector to paint difficult to paint shapes, like cylinders. Using an electrical charge, paint is propelled toward the surface to create a perfect, even finish. This isn’t necessary in the residential sector because we use non-toxic, water-based products. 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-fume property of the technique. All of our paints and coatings are specifically designed for spray application, and combined with our spray equipment, result in a high transfer efficiency and minimal amount of overspray. When it comes to painting the exterior of a home, we’ve created the best products and have mastered the techniques to create a like-new, factory finish.
What types of exterior surfaces do you paint?
We paint: – aluminum & vinyl siding – stucco & aggregate – metal front & garage doors – aluminum & vinyl windows – soffits, fascias & gutters
…and we can even stain brick!
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, industrial-strength exterior paints and coatings. All of our products fall under all government VOC limits. Each exterior paint and coating is uniquely tailored for a specific exterior surface and for a specific method of application, and they all contain a unique combination of additives and superior inorganic pigments that reflect the sun’s harsh UV rays.
Since factory paint is cooked, is your paint as scratch resistant?
When we paint doors and windows for manufacturers, we use UV rays 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 an excellent level of protection. 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 quick, full cure.
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, as well as weather conditions, paint thickness can vary between 1.5 and 15 mils. A thicker paint film doesn’t automatically mean it will be more durable.
You can be sure that our expert exterior painting crews are equipped with the products and have the 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 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 colours?
We have a wide variety of colours for you to choose from, each specifically formulated for exterior use and with optimal fade resistance. We use a combination of the most popular standard siding, door and window colours to provide maximum durability against premature fading and discolouration, as well as to apply the finishing touch of matching-coloured caulking.
Although we can match any exterior paint colour you have in mind, we can’t guarantee the same optimal fade resistance or a matching caulking colour. Finally, we work with an experienced designer every year to help us come up with the latest colour trends and ultra-stylish exterior colour palettes… an added perk that our customers really appreciate!
