Painting houses in Bend, Oregon can present several challenges when it comes to climate. We’ve written a couple articles on it like, “Painting Houses in Bend, Oregon” and “How Weather Affects House Painting in Bend, Oregon”.
It seemed to make sense then that we take a deeper look at a few of the materials that house painters in the area could benefit from. Materials that are designed to work better in our particular climate and handle our freeze thaw cycles more effectively.
Materials like Evolution exterior paint, Peel Bond primer and Pro Stretch caulking. These materials are in our everyday use as a painting company and we feel would benefit anyone painting here in central Oregon. Let’s take a look at the products in more detail.
Evolution is an advanced exterior paint. It consists of a 100% pure acrylic co-polymer resin. What that means for you is that it lasts a really long time, especially in adverse climates.
Evolution exterior paint can be used on just about any surface. You can use it on vertical wood, composite, metal, concrete, succo, and block. It’s extremely versatile which makes it great for just about any painting project.
The paint is also very heavy. This means that with just one application you can get the job done, which can save on labor. You can put on a second coat for extra protection and sustainability. Putting on a second coat can mean more time in between painting jobs, saving you money.
Peel Bond® Primer/Sealer
Peel Bond is a water based primer/sealer formulated to bond/seal a wide range of construction surfaces. It can reduce cracking and peeling of the topcoat paint by remaining flexible over the life of the paint.
As a primer/sealer, Prime bond can be used on just about any surface. Peel Bond is designed for use as a prime coat for wood, plywood, drywall, hardboard and T1-11 siding, as well as other architectural construction materials including; stucco, brick, aluminum, galvanized metal, fiberglass, PVC plastic, PVC siding and previously painted surfaces. It is suitable for use as a penetrating sealer for raw wood and will seal stucco, concrete and plaster also bridging hair-line cracks.
Using a primer/sealer that is so versatile can save you a lot of time and money. It’s specially formulated for adverse climates like that of Central Oregon.
Pro Stretch Caulk
In Central Oregon, the weather can change drastically in a single day. With temperatures fluctuating so much, it makes sense to have a sealant that can handle it. That’s where Pro Stretch Caulk comes in as a handy painting tool.
PRO STRETCH is a one component, high performance, gun-grade, Acrylic Urethane Elastomeric Sealant. Formulated from premium technology, reduces dirt pickup, eliminates yellowing and shiners.
