Questions & Answers

Q:Can I tint this with a neutral tan or brown or even an orange?

Answer This Question

A:  Hi Steve. Romabio Paints are tinted with natural oxide pigments, a service not provided through Home Depot. Also, as a white base, it can only be tinted to light to medium-light colors. The darkest would be our Nube Gray. You can visit romabio.com for a list of colors and options.

      Q:Would this product be appropriate to just lighten the grout on a brick fireplace? I like my brick and don’t really want to change the color of the brick much, but the grout is WAY to dark.

        A:  Hello. We wouldn't recommend Classico Limewash® for a front door. You would also need to use a primer for pre-painted surfaces. Please reach out to us at info@romabio.com so we can get all the details of your planned project to better help find the products you need.

            Lime wash turned yellow
            Prepared and clean fireplace only to lime wash it and turned yellow. I got the white one to match home remodel and now I have a yellow fireplace.
            Response from RomabioOct 31, 2023
            Hi Beto. We're sorry you're having a tough time with your brick. Brick is very absorbent and can wick moisture or retain vapor residues, such as oils or tannins. Manganese is probably the most common stain on brick because it happens at the manufacturing stage when the bricks are exposed to acid during production. Unfortunately, this outcome is tough to see on raw brick or stone and can’t be predicted before or during the application of any paint product. We do have solution in cases where this happens. Reach out to our team at info@romabio.com. RomabioHC
              Wonderful product! Easy to mix and apply. So many compliments on what a difference it made to our home.

                  Excellent Product
                  Loved applying this product. It was so easy! Mixing it, we used the lesser measure of water for a bit thicker consistency. It went on beautifully, and we did not need a second coat. Was going to distress it, but the look was so lovely, we left it as is. Coverage using that thickness was about 100 sq ft. We used a 2” brush for our fireplace, because the inexpensive $12 recommended brush we bought splattered the product everywhere! Total project time including prep and cleanup and a two inch brush was 3 hrs.
