What is Exterior Wall Coating?

Exterior wall coating is a more robust masonry creme coating that is waterproof preventing any moisture damaging your walls and brickwork, therefore protecting your home from the elements and deterioration.

Damage from water and adverse weather is something that manifests over time, which is where exterior wall coating shows it’s true value!

Given we are a wall coating company in Scotland, this is massive selling point and the reason why many people opt for wall coating over exterior paint or external rendering products.

The wall coating product itself is made from a variety of different materials that blend together to create something stronger and more durable than the parts on their own. They are then spray or in some cases to reach certain areas hand painted to the exterior of any building.

The number of coats your wall needs depends on the surface material and what’s already on your home exterior.

Castle Coatings Scotland almost exclusively applies 2 coats of wall coating, these details will always be discussed and agreed with you before any work begins.

Many wall coating companies in Inverness either don’t apply the required number of coats or simply don’t apply the wall coating properly! 

The purpose of this type of coating is to provide protection against mould, mildew,  weather and other elements that cause damage the exterior walls of your home. Exterior wall coating also has a wow factor, especially when you see it in person, simply put you can tell it’s not just paint!

When it comes to applying exterior wall coating and installation, this is so important! 

This is why it is so important to hire professionals like us, who have years of experience behind them and understand the best method to apply coatings on each job.

Although there are general steps that are used for every property, the exact course of action varies depending on the specifics to your home.

The following steps are generally included in every wall coating application project we take on.

  • Complete examination of all exterior walls and surfaces
  • Power washing or other cleaning processes to remove algae, fungal growth, loose paint or coating, and any dirt or debris present.
  • Filling in of any cracks, chips, and blemishes so that the wall is perfectly smooth and ready for coating application.
  • Masking of any trim, windows, and other hardware that will not receive the exterior wall coating.
  • Surface treatment if necessary to restore the material and get it ready to accept the coating. This can include an application of primer.
  • The final application of exterior wall coating begins.

Masonry paint provides new colour, a fresh look and a small level of protection to exterior walls. It is a thin product that focuses more on aesthetic revitalisation short term than it does on long term protection and durability. Think about the popular saying “a lick of paint” for example.

Exterior wall coating, on the other hand, is a thicker protective material that gives your walls a strong layer of defence against environmental factors. The difference between paint and coating mainly comes down to quality and shelf life.

The exterior of your home needs to be coated to preserve your the colour of your wall and protect the surface from water, strong winds or UV radiation, and keep it looking fresh.

But what are the signs that it is time for some fresh new wall coating?

A few small nicks in your paint can be an indication that the paint is too old and should be redone.

Another sign is when if you notice your paint peeling off. This could be due to improper application in the beginning, however, it is most likely due to age and weathering. If you have any cracks or peeling paint on your walls, it is a good idea to reach out to a professional and have a survey carried out.

  • Two bedroom mid terraced house FROM £1800.
  • Standard three bedroom semi-detached house FROM £3000.
  • Larger projects = bespoke prices.

The cost of exterior wall coating mainly depends on square meterage and the overall size of your home. While surface area determines a large portion of cost, other factors such as awkward surfaces, scaffold requirement and remedial work prior to applying the coating need to taken into account.

If there is any existing damage that needs to be repaired before work can begin, we will explain this during your initial free survey. 

Hiring Wall Coating Companies in Inverness

Considering the size of the investment, finding a professional wall coating company to renovate your home is extremely important.


There are many things to consider in order to find the right company for your project.

First things first, check how long the company has been established. Unfortunately, this industry is full of fly by night rogue traders and other conmen looking to make a quick buck!

Read customer reviews, get recommendations from friends and family, and examine the track record / portfolio of that a particular company over the years on Facebook and on their website.

Be wary of any hard sales approach, generally speaking, companies who use this method will promise the world, yet seldom deliver.

It also shows a real lack of class and integrity, after your survey with Castle Coatings (Scotland) Ltd it will be apparent you are dealing with a trustworthy family run business who take pride in our work.
