Elastomeric – A Nightmare
We built our house in 1984. Three or four years later we repainted the exterior using an elastomeric paint. It has been a nightmare — bubbling, bucking, streaking, peeling at corners. Finally, this year we decided to sandblast the house and start over. The elastomeric had to be peeled off first virtually by hand but not all of it could be removed. We tried sandblasting through it and it resisted.
Now we are trying to find a way to refinish the hideous mess that is the exterior of an otherwise beautiful house. I believe home owners should be warned of the possible ill effects of this product.
