Elastomeric – A Nightmare

By David Jacobs (Los Angeles, CA)


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.

    It’s not the paint it was the concrete mixture. As with the pyramids, so many where built but only a few stood over the test of time. A perfect mixture is always a factor and if it got frost then it is always trying to rehydrate forever.

    Poor grade of elastomeric

    Such a failure of the coating might have been caused by not properly preparing the stucco before painting or the stucco itself. An improper mix of the stucco, example- too much lime, would cause the coating or any paint to bubble even with priming. Another possibility is a poor grade of elastomeric paint.
