Can marine paint be used on your house?

File:Houseboat.jpgYou have probably heard of individuals using house paint on their boats but what about marine paint (boat paint) on a house?  Is it really effective?  Here is what you need to know prior to using marine paint on your house.

Marine paint, first off, is designed specifically for boats, etc.  But what many people do not know is that you can use it as a form of house paint.  Specifically hard wood floors.  Marine paint is “tough as nails”  especially if used in rare hardwood bathroom floors or even outdoor furniture since it is no stranger to getting wet.

What are the added benefits of using marine paint on your house?  Check out these facts to decide if you would like to use marine paint on your home:

  • Durable
  • No-mix formulas available
  • Resists cracking, chipping, and peeling
  • 10 year warranties available
  • Displaces rust causing air and moisture
  • Self-levels
  • Can be used as a primer and paint in one product
  • Conforms to government specifications
  • Excellent hardness

Would you ever consider using marine paint on your house?  I personally never considered it, but it does sound like it would be as effective as house paint, if not better.
