New Driveway Look

There are a few things you need to consider before purchasing driveway paint. What material is your driveway made of? There are asphalt, concrete, stone, even wood driveways; each with their own painting obstacles and needs. Be sure to purchase paint that is made for your type of driveway.

Epoxy-Seal is a professional strength paint that dries to a smooth, satin finish that resists scuffing, peeling, blistering and fading. The paint is available in 18 tintable colors and three pre-mixed colors, and can be purchased nationwide at Lowe’s, Sherwin Williams and many professional paint stores.

Epoxy (acrylic or synthetic) paint works great. This kind of paint repels dirt, oil, tar, and other substances usually brought upon driveways. Available in a wide array of colors, this type of paint can really add personality to your curb. Coal and tar paint is a cheaper option, similar to acrylic paint. It repels dirt and other substances, while easy to apply.

Water and oil based paints are an even cheaper option, but do not offer the same protection as epoxy. They are also available in a wide range of colors, and easy to apply, and can resist the elements, but will not protect from cracking.

When painting your driveway, choose what driveway paint best fits your needs and wallet. You may opt for a protective coating, as well. Be sure to stay off the driveway for several days after painting. When the stencils is done, you usually come through with some sort of acrylic stain to give it that textured a look.

If you have a driveway that is sun deteriorating to gray and needs a re-finish, you should look into getting some driveway paint to bring it back to great shape. Concrete stains, paints, stencils and glosses are very important when you are dealing with decor in and around any house.

Take a look around on the net and you will find thousands of pictures that will show you exactly what you can expect from these processes.
