Acrylic masonry paint, which is water-based, is usually the best paint to use on outside walls. This paint is great for waterproofing your walls, yet simultaneously allows moisture that is already within the walls to evaporate.
What are exterior walls generally painted with?
Cement Paint: Cement Paint is a water-based paint that is used for painting the exteriors of a building or a house. Cement paint prevents dust from accumulating on the walls and stops the penetration of water into the walls. It can be used for painting walls on both the interior and exteriors of a building.
What finish is best for exterior house paint?
Satin/eggshell: Best for siding because its a low-reflective finish thats good at hiding surface imperfections. It has a slight gloss, so it stays cleaner, is more easily washed, and stands up to abrasion better than flat or matte paints.
