Introducing Element Guard


Usually with exterior paints, it’s important that the paint be allowed to dry overnight before we get rain or even a heavy dew. I’m Dan Hansen and this is a minute at RepcoLite. 

If moisture gets on a painted surface sooner than that, a number of undesirable situations can occur.  It’s a common problem every spring and fall. 

But now, Benjamin Moore just came out with a brand new exterior paint that is honestly, almost miraculous in what it does. It’s called Element Guard and its big claim to fame is that as long as the paint has had an hour–a single hour–to dry before rain or dew settle on it . . . it’s fine. All it needs is a single hour.

Element Guard is a waterbased exterior paint, cleans up with soap and water, and can give you confidence when you’re doing your early or late season painting. And really, it’s a great safeguard when you’re painting outside at any time. Best of all, Element Guard is priced very reasonably, making it an ideal solution for DIYers and professional contractors alike. If you’ve got some exterior painting coming up, stop out at any RepcoLite and ask about Element Guard from Benjamin Moore. I’m Dan Hansen and that‘s a Minute at RepcoLite.
