How specialized tropical paint protect your Florida home

When you live in a climate that’s hot and humid like Florida, it’s important that you protect your home from the heat and moisture. Homes in environments that have high humidity often have difficulty drying after a heavy rain, which can lead to water damage. At UCI Paints, we’ve engineered specialized tropical paint in Florida to combat such issues because we know how troublesome it can be for your home. If you’ve never considered using a special paint for the heat and humidity that we deal with in the area, we have four great reasons why you should.

Mildew- and algae-resistant

It doesn’t take much moisture for mildew and algae to start growing on your wood siding. All you need is a small area where the water soaks into the wood, warmth, and some time. This can be a dangerous combination that eventually leads to severe rot as mildew and algae grow in the wood, which weakens the structure and spreads from siding to the framing of your home. You can avoid this by applying specialized paint that’s resistant to the effects of mildew and algae so it doesn’t grow on the side of your house and compromise the integrity of its structure.
