To choose the most suitable products for houses, TOA divides 4 main product groups for an efficient home painting system as follows:

4 groups of home paint systems 

  1. New houses never painted before
  2. Old houses or renovated houses aged 20-30 years or more
  3. Houses located in high moisture areas
  4. Houses in heavy-sunlight areas

TOA divides those 4 groups of home paint systems for the convenience of homeowners to buy the proper home paint products with long-lasting beauty and the optimum efficiency of coloring.

2. Exterior home paint system for old houses or renovated houses aged 20-30 years old and over

An important thing to note before the exterior painting of old houses aged 20-30 years and over is the “condition of the cement surface”. If the houses are located in areas with strong weather conditions, such as heavy sunlight, sea breeze, or rainstorms, at all times, these can result in a faster deterioration of cement surfaces. So, the preparation of the surface for old houses is very important. If the surface is not in a ready state to be repainted, there will be possible recurrent problems of peeling and swelling colors.

Should the surface be smoothened before painting?

Skim Coat is a smoothening of the walls. When it is necessary to smoothen the walls, homeowners need to check whether the house surface is porous or rough as grains of sand. If it requires smooth surface, just use skim coat for smoothness first by applying TOA Contact Primer on old cement before doing the skim coat once again and continuing with home painting.

3. Exterior home paint system under high moisture

Houses with high moisture are sometimes inevitable, especially moisture from the ground below that pushes up to the lower part of houses or walls.

If inevitable, one can prevent having less moisture on the house by using chemicals, such as TOA Moisture Guard Paint it on the lower part of houses before starting the paint system to help the house become more resistant to moisture. It also extends the life of the topcoat film and prevents the color film from cracking, swelling and gradually peeling off later.

4. Exterior home paint system with maximum heat-resistance

For houses that focus on maximum heat-resistant, TOA has an innovation called “TOA home cooling system”. This type of insulation product called TOA Insulator Primer is proven to actually reduce the house temperature and it also has a property for reflecting out the heat by up to 94.5%. It should be used with different types of TOA topcoat for maximum results to reflect-out the heat.
