Mediterranean Limewash has excellent durability on exterior surfaces.  Once the erosion process starts, natural uneven colouring will take place.  This curing and changing process continues over 12 months - colour changes will take place over the life span of the coating.


Existing Stucco, Strongwall or concrete should be Chemocide treated, then waterblasted clean, then apply 2 coats of Strongwall Sealer in desired colour - then 2 coats of Mediterranean Limewash.
