we are currently in the process of building three geo domes, any one out
there who has experience in coatings for the exterior? we are thinking of
dryvits for a coating, and could not find much info on it. using shingles is
hard to do because of roundness of dome itself, so using an alternative
coating would be nice, including the fact that the dryvit could be colored
to any desired color. i know that dryvit is just one of many out there for
an elastomeric coating, but the most familar to me. problems i couln't find
1. is it waterproof?
2. ease of application?
3. is foam neccessary to achieve application?
4. how long will coating last before deteriorating?
5. is a base coat neccessary before adding dryvit?
thanks to all who respond, this is a project we thought of alternative
housing, with alternative finishs and such, these homes will be off the grid
using 12 and 24 volt technology through out the home. mike
