Cork Paint on Brick Veneer
I’m an energy auditor in Northern Colorado, 5000′ elevation, CZ5, 6000 HDD.
I have a customer who wants to paint the brick veneer on her wood framed house with cork paint, specifically Vipeq as approved by Mike Holmes. https://makeitright.ca/approved-products/vipeq/ It seems like a bad idea for a few reasons. It will likely trap moisture in the brick for one. I’m also skeptical of the thermal insulation claims.
Does anyone have experience and/or opinions on the use of this paint?
It seems like snake oil to me.
