This can be particularly beneficial if you have stucco siding that has developed cracks. However, wood surfaces, like T-111 siding, can also see several benefits when it is used. T-111 siding can develop an array of cracks as time passes. These imperfections have to be filled with a primer. If this is not done, water or paint will penetrate under the finish, which can result in peeling.

Some homeowners and even painters will try to use several coats of paint to help fill these cracks. However, this will not last too long. In fact, you will likely begin to see peeling in just two to three years and the paint will start to degenerate soon after that.

Using two coats of elastomeric paint over a quality primer will ensure the cracks are filled and water will not be able to get in. When this coating is applied properly, you will find that 100% acrylic paint can last for up to ten years. However, elastomeric coatings will last much longer.
