What happens if I told you that you would only have to paint your house once in its lifetime? Would you scoff at me and think I was off my rocker? (No comments from the peanut gallery.) Southern based Home Preservation Systems claims that the Extreme Performance Permanent Painting system will guarantee these results. They are so sure of their claim that they provide a lifetime warranty of the house, provided you maintain the house properly.
Oh, come on Anna. Sounds so National Enquirous
Yes. I had one of those moments and said to myself, pinch me, I am dreaming. Then I thought of my last house which had to be maintained every year and painted probably every couple of years. Talk about a chunk of change.
A couple of week ago, I spoke with an independent dealer, New Jersey based Permanent Paint, about the product at a trade show. They are distributing this system in the northeast. The Company has been in business since 1992 and it is family run.
Listen to the podcast below about the permanent painting system.
What’s in this Paint?
“The Extreme Performance Permanent Painting System™ is made up of a SPECIAL FORMULATION OF POLYMERS, ACRYLIC RESINS & TITANIUM DIOXOIDE that has been proven successful over the years in such applications as Highway Lines, Golf Ball Coatings, Chemical Plants as well as others.”
There are over 1800 colors to choose from and a custom color can be made as well. The paint cannot be used for vinyl siding.
The painting system has a dual environmental purpose. It is a low VOC product with less than 150 grams of VOC per liter. In addition, you are reducing the amount of painting products used over the lifetime of the home.
What’s this Going to Cost me?
A spokesperson of Home Preservation Systems indicated that a paint job using their painting system would cost 4 to 5 times the cost of a normal paint job. However, Permanent Paint (NJ) disagrees and states the following:
“First, let us estimate that contracting a standard painter to prep and paint the average size colonial home will come in around $6,000.00. Since prep and application for the Extreme Performance Permanent Painting System typically cost approximately 2 times as much as a standard paint job, this means that the average-sized colonial home would be $12,000.00.”
Dealers of the Home Preservation Systems provide a lifetime limited warranty for defects in their products. However, Permanent Paint (NJ) only provides a 25 year warranty for commercial and an unlimited warranty as long as you live in your house. The residential warranty provided by PP NJ is transferable only within three years of installation
