ROMABIO Classico Limewash is a slow-set, slaked-lime paint that is specially formulated to create unique white wash effects for Interior and Exterior brick, stone and other masonry surfaces. This Limewash paint is easily applied as a 1-coat process to a damp surface and is washed off with a garden hose or spray water bottle to create an antique lime wash finish equal to the look in historic Europe. Unlike German smear technique using mortar, this paint is breathable, high UV-resistant, and will continue to calcify and harden over the years and will not peel or chip off as it is designed for durability for the exterior.
  • Specially formulated for breathability on brick, stone and other masonry surfaces
  • After 50-70% dilution with water 1 qt. bucket will make 1.5 - 1.75 qt. of paint and covers 80 - 100 sq. ft.
  • Very flat finish provides non-reflective appearance and gives the natural lime wash look of historic Europe
  • Resists UV damage, peeling or flaking, for a durable and breathable paint finish with no maintenance unlike a mortar wash with German smear
  • Easily removed with a high force pressure washer within 5-days after initial application
  • Self-priming, 1-coat process and is applied to a damp surface and sprayed off for a whitewash effect
  • Dries in as little 10-minutes and up to 60-minutes, depending on sun and temperature and will not be affected by rain or normal weather conditions after initial application
  • Non-toxic formula will not harm lawn, trees, plants and animals
  • Naturally mold-resistant and breathable reducing the buildup of stagnant moisture
  • Soap and water cleanup cuts time in half and does not affect the environment
  • Zero-VOC formula minimizes ill-health effects

Make sure you clean "pressure wash" the project really well so the product can penetrate the pores. Youtube has some really helpful videos on projects that came out great. Also I'm sure the label gives directions also.

Answer

I do not think that this product will be suitable for your needs. a flat surface will be walked upon and wear faster also the rain / snow will dissolve the entire finish quicker. Basically it is a powder that is mixed with water and applied to the surface. Any exterior application will wear faster than an interior one. Ask the Home Depot paint experts for advice on your needs.

Can you add 5% Portland Concrete to increase durability and longevity?

I’m not an expert, but did a lot of reading on limewash, and wouldn’t think that’s a good idea. Limewash soaks into the brick, calcifies to it, and still allows the brick to breathe, unlike paint. It would seem the concrete would possibly prevent that. If you’re looking for more of a paint, Romabio also make a mortar paint that I believe lasts 20 years or so Hope this helps you

It’s off white. Should look good with any color roof.

WILL THIS COLOR GO WELL WITH RED ROOF ?

Answer

Hello Gin. Avorio White is an off white. We often refer to it as a neutral white because it will pull the undertones from surrounding architectural features - like your red roof. You can read more about Romabio white hues on our latest blog post: https://romabio.com/choosing-a-romabio-white/

Very pleased with the end results. Product was easy to use and basically goof proof. We did find that using a small wire brush wrapped with our rag towel made things easier to clean off our bricks after the second day and was easier on our hands and fingers. Clean up was super easy.

Love, love, love my fireplace now! This product is amazing and very forgiving as well because of the ability to wipe some of the paint off. Read directions thoroughly. Will dry more opaque than what you see when it goes on. I can’t remember at the moment exactly how much I diluted the paint, it was either 50 or 75%. Do a test patch of you are not sure. It has transformed my ugly orange, brown brick and chocolate colored mortar into something beautiful. Everyone comments on how great it looks!

The bricks constructing our indoor fireplace were at least 50 years old. They were so dry and porous they sucked up the Romabio like sponges. It required 3 coats to get the white finish we were after. We like the look of the finished product.

So easy and customizable to your taste!
This was incredibly easy to do with results that exceeded my expectations. I mixed 1:1 to cover a 1/2" concrete molded brick wall in my back hall coming from my garage that we had installed when we moved in for an "old world" look, but the jewel tone colors just didn't do it for me anymore. I bought the brush by the same company and it is expensive but worth it as it holds a ton of product in the soft bristles and you can cover a lot of area with one dip, going in with a smaller brush for the detailed areas. I also would take the smaller paint brush and just dip it in water and quickly brush it over large areas to take off excess product and let some color through when it would get too opaque. Later, I took a damp rag and roughed up some bricks here and there on the face and edges to give it a rustic vibe (which the picture doesn't really show). I feel like as it dried it continued to absorb the lime and got more opaque, so if I were to do it again I would probably just do 2:1 and it would probably have been perfect for the look I was going for.
