The Stratford paint kit comes with the 3 primary colors found throughout the panels as well as the single color that makes up the trim, ledgers and caps. Paint kits are used in the following ways:
- Cover Up Cuts: After you complete your project, it’s important to go back and examine the connections for any exposed raw material left behind by cuts.
- UV Protection: GenStone is painted with 12 coats of a premium exterior paint which has added UV protection. Exposed raw material will discolor in the sun over time if left unpainted.
- Tint eXact Color Caulking: All 3 colors can be combined and added to a tube of GenStone eXact Color caulking to conceal fastener holes left in the face of the stone. Many customers purchase one tube of eXact Color caulking to be used on the face of the stone and one dedicated tube for the trim, ledgers and caps.
- Conceal Fastener Holes: After filling in the fastener holes with caulking, wait for the caulking to dry and then use the paint kit to perfectly blend the area into the surrounding color.
