The subject of cement coatings, or cement paints, as many speak and thing of them, is one which will receive a great deal more of thought. As an example, in an advertisement after describing a cement building from a fireproof standpoint, there is added, "Painting not Necessary." This remark, as it stands and as it is construed by the Majority of users of cement, is correct and really applies to oil painting as it is used for the protection of lumber in building of frame construction. Good cement work does not need any protection from rain or climatic conditions such as soon destroy unpainted wood.
