This is a question that we are often asked at Richardson and Starling. Over the past few years, anti-condensation paint has gained popularity among homeowners.
The purpose of anti-condensation paint is to reduce a large proportion of moisture build up in sensitive areas of the home. The paint slightly insulates the wall improving the surface temperature.
Many of our customers use this type of paint to cover the walls of basements, attics, garages, sheds, and entry areas of the homes.
This type of paint is for use in areas where there is minor moisture that forms on the walls, instead of rivers flowing in a basement. Even in the event of moisture forming on the walls, the anti-condensation paint will not eliminate it. It will reduce it for easier management, but will not completely stop it.
