Last year when I was looking for a workable exterior dome covering (paint or what?) I received a referral from a friend in the painting biz. See said, ‘ask Chandra she can help’. Well I found Chandra and her answer to my dilemma was to use elastomeric paint. That did the job since there hasn’t been any water seepage through the paint and no loss of integrity from uv radiation in over a year - and it still looks good. Of course, it comes in whatever colour you choose.
Not only was her advice right on but I had noticed the folks at Cloverdale to be service oriented and to know what they’re talking about. The steady flow of DIY’ers as well as painting subcontractors through the store is another sign that they offer not just the paint but the assistance to meet a diversity of needs.
So I was pleasantly surprised when they accepted my request for, yes more elastomeric paint to help in building the tiny house for the GrowCalgary microhome competition.
Having started in BC (I’ll hazard a guess here and say Cloverdale), Cloverdale Paint is Canada’s largest Canadian family owned and operated coatings manufacturer and has reached a milestone by celebrating 85 years in business. Something to remember when you’re looking for a more local, Canadian supplier. A huge thanks to Cloverdale Paint!
