Architectural coatings

In the United States, architectural coatings[1][2] or architectural paints[3] are paints and other coatings used to coat buildings and homes.[2] Strictly speaking, clear varnishes and lacquers are not paints.[1] Such products are usually designated for specific purposes such as roof coatings, wall paints, or deck finishes.[2] The coatings are typically applied with brushes, rollers or sprayers.[4] The coatings in question are intended for on-site application and do not include "factory-applied coatings for building products such as vinyl siding or aluminum window frames [that] may ultimately be used for architectural end-uses".[2]
