For every purpose, there is the matching wall paint for the outside, whether you want to design a colored base, fill plaster cracks or remove old ivy traces. In addition, there are the matching primers, which cause a firm surface adhesion of the paint.

If you want a silicate coating, please keep in mind that this color grade is created exclusively for mineral substrates. In addition, the liquid color has a high pH and should therefore be processed with protective clothing.

With which wall paint do I paint damp outside walls?

If your outer walls are wet, it's best to keep your fingers off the paint. Start the search for the cause of the flooding and fix it together with a specialist.

Then the wall has to be dried well until it is overpaintable. Lasting exposure to moisture not only causes every wall paint to peel off again, it also leads to mold and damages the fabric of the building.

In addition, all existing damage must be repaired before repainting. After that, a normal façade or base color is sufficient to paint your wall from the outside.

Tips & Tricks

On busy roads, the façade gets dirty very quickly: wall paints based on silicone resin ensure that the outer walls remain clean for as long as possible, and these coating agents are particularly weather-resistant.
