Exterior Ceramic Coating - worth it?

Posted by juipm (My Page) on

I have a 1936 brick home that has been painted. The current exterior paint is less than 10 years old, but it needs to be redone.

We're exploring exterior ceramic coatings (e.g. RhinoShield, Liquid Rubber Siding) because they will strip all of the wood fascia boards, dormers, etc. on the house and extensively prep the brick. Additionally, the paint comes with a 25 year labor and material warranty (from the franchisee - not the mfr). However, it is VERY expensive (1.5 - 2 times a regular paint job).

Does anyone have experience with these products? Is the extra prep/longevity of the product worth the additional cost?

Thanks in advance!
