The Importance of Adding Grit

Living in Florida, a large part of our year involves enjoying the weather outside. Many of our homes are designed to take advantage of that with porches, pools with decks and large patio areas. In this week’s Seal Pro Painting blog, we will discuss the importance of using grit when painting these areas to create a safe and enjoyable surface.

While a freshly painted deck or porch can really change the aesthetic of a relaxing area of your home, when done without grit, it can become very slippery. As frequently as it rains here in the Sunshine State, adding grit to your outdoor surfaces can give you peace of mind.

Once you’ve decided grit would be beneficial for your project, manufacturers have made it easy for you to apply. The painting industry has come a long way in this area and now offers different options for paint with grit. First, you can buy paint with grit already mixed in at almost any local hardware store, however this is usually the more expensive route. A more cost-effective option would be to buy a grit additive specially designed for outdoor paint or use a fine grit sand and mix it in yourself.

Whatever your preference on how to add grit into your next outdoor painting project, just remember the value it brings to you and your family to make the space the safest and most enjoyable it can be.

At Seal Pro Painting we commit to offering the highest quality possible and making sure our customers as satisfied for years after their job is completed.
