Colour washing of exterior plastered surface, white washing/ distembering inside have been specified in annexure 2.6 para 225(a) of IRWM for residential & service buildings with periodicity of such paintings.

For exterior surface the finishings have changed with development of new types and varieties of paints. From colour washing to Snocem and from snowcem to acrylic emulsion paint and resin paints like santexmatt. Similarly for internal painting the finishings have changed from white washing to distember and distember to plastic paints, textured paints and rubberised paints.

The life of these superior type of paints are more and they protect the building better from weathering effects, algae etc... Though para 209 of IRWM envisages use of new materials available in the market on consideration of cost, contractibility and aesthetic with the approval of concerened SAG officer, should we not revise the standards and type of paints and increase the periodicity of painting due to use of superior type of paints and correct our IRWM accordingly.

Similarly the the type of flooring, dado etc.. specified in IRWM needs a change as per new materials available in the market.

Kindly see CE's circular number 58 of SER available in the following link where Sr.DEN/DRM's approval is required for use of snowcem in service buildings which otherwise are to be to be white washed/colour washed
