Specialty Paint Products

What is specialty paint? 

Specialty paint has additional properties that provide aesthetics and extra protection (e.g., resistance to heat, mildew, and moisture) that regular paint doesn’t have. Not all these products are expensive; but in many instances, the raw materials that go into them and research & development can drive the price.  

Specialty coatings are not limited to paint; there are also industrial products made specifically to protect roofs and concrete flooring. These coatings are usually made with epoxy or urethane, therefore they are more heat-resistant, waterproof, and more durable than regular paint. 

Why do you need specialty paint in your house? 

Specialty paint is not just for industrial, medical, and commercial purposes. You can use epoxy coatings to protect your garage or basement floors, and moisture- and mildew-wicking paint for your bathroom walls. With chalkboard or dry-erase paint in children’s bedrooms or playrooms, you can inspire creativity and encourage your kids to draw or write on walls! 

What kind of specialty paint do we offer? 

There are many kinds of specialty paint for different purposes to best serve your needs. Popular coatings include:

Why leave it to the pros?  

Different products need different application techniques and specifications to be applied properly. Because of this, the application of specialty paint and coatings requires specialized knowledge and experience. If you apply it incorrectly, it can be costly and time-consuming to fix mistakes.
