We first bought the paint a couple of years ago, when we were refurbishing the bathroom in our house prior to sale. With two outside walls, condensation and unsightly mildew had been a problem in all the years we’d lived there.
The Thermilate insulating and energy-saving paint was easy to apply and I knew as soon as it was dry that it had done ‘something’ because the walls were slightly warm to the touch. Until this point, I had been fairly sceptical because I couldn’t see how anything as thin as a coat of paint could achieve a meaningful degree of insulation. However, in the months between the paint going on and completion on sale, there was no condensation problem anymore and no trace of mildew, even on the ceiling where I had use the remainder of the wall paint, then put white emulsion over the top.
Since then, we have properties we bought to let and have used Thermilate paint on two that we have refurbished, so that condensation would not cause maintenance problems. The stuff works. I don’t know how but the price of a tin of Thermilate is peanuts compared to the cost of continually redecorating, especially as it is still effective when painted over.
You are welcome to use this email as an endorsement. Mildew is potentially hazardous to health, so I would like as many people as possible to find out how cheaply it can be eradicated in many cases.
