Architectural coating are used on structures such as homes, apartments and office buildings. Other terms for architectural coatings are decorative paints, building paints, and DIY (do it yourself) paints. These coatings most people recognize, purchase and use.
Architectural coatings are paints and coatings applied on-site to new and existing residential, commercial, institutional and industrial buildings.
The architectural coatings sector is comprised of coatings which are purchased and applied by both consumers and contractors. Products include paints, stains, varnishes and many other types of coating and sealing products which are intended for in-situ application to buildings, furniture, pavement, concrete, metal and a wide variety of surfaces present in residential, commercial, institutional, and industrial settings.
The largest segment of the paint industry produces architectural coatings – including consumer paints – which make up approximately half of the total coatings produced annually in the United States. In 2006, the industry shipped more than 761 million gallons of architectural coatings, with a value of $9 billion.
These products are used to beautify and maintain the surfaces of homes, public buildings, offices and factories. About half are applied by “do-it-yourself” consumers, who recognize that paint is the most versatile, least costly and easiest to use of all home decorating products.
