With breathable and durable mineral paints
Have you been told to never paint your brick or masonry home?
Imagine if you could paint the exterior of your brick home without worrying about maintenance or causing issues.
Traditionally, experts have not recommended painting brick because water and moisture can cause damage. But, if you use a breathable, mineral paint that does NOT seal the brick and allows the moisture to release, then you won’t have these issues.
Romabio Paints has specially formulated Mineral Masonry Paints, so you can paint the exterior of your brick or masonry home with a highly durable, long-lasting paint that won’t peel or flake off, has high-UV resistance, is naturally mold-resistant, and has a beautiful, flat finish.
Masonry Flat (BioDomus I)
For a flat, solid, and permanent finish with natural beauty, choose Masonry Flat. It is extremely durable, can be tinted to the color of your choice, and lasts 20 years with no peeling or chipping off.
It is 2 coat system (no additional primer) for unpainted, absorbent brick or stone. For all other surface types, you must use BioGrip Micro Primer as a first coat, then add 1-2 coats of Masonry Flat.
Masonry Textured (BioDomus II)
For a flat, solid, and permanent finish with aggregate that creates a slight texture, choose Masonry Textured. It is extremely durable, can be tinted to the color of your choice, and lasts 20 years with no peeling or chipping off.
Masonry Textured will look slightly different than Masonry Flat because it contains aggregate. On rough brick, it will create a smoother finish, but on smooth brick it will create a slight texture. It works great for smoothing rough concrete, cinder block, or other rough masonry surfaces, as it will fill in and help the surface to appear softer and more uniform. It can also create a stucco-like finish with paint, used as a thick finish coat. More details in TDS.

I did a side-by- side comparison of the Masonry Paint product and one of your competitors and found that it had much better coverage. The Masonry product adhered to the surface better too, and wouldn’t scratch or chip off. We are really pleased with it and with only two coats needed, it has better value and performance.

A very low maintenance paint for brick, stone, concrete, and other masonry surfaces.
These mineral-based products are different than any other paints in the industry. They are natural products that have a similar molecular structure to that of the brick and masonry surface and are highly permeable (perm rating of 70+). This contributes to a breathable wall system which means water moisture contained in the parts of a structure or surface can diffuse outward without resistance, keeping walls dry and preventing structural damage over time, and resisting moisture that contributes to mold growth, making them naturally mold-resistant.
Mineral-based paints have an extremely high-UV resistance, extending the performance of the product. The chemical fusion with the substrate and the UV stability of the binder are the fundamental reasons for the extraordinarily high lifetime of silicate paints.
