Many homes in Southern California—like popular Spanish Colonial style homes—have a great looking stucco exterior. The problem with stucco is its costly maintenance and frequent repair needs. Enter texture coating, an advanced material, installed by Approved Contractor, Inc. that provides maximum protection from the elements for your home exterior.
Texture coating is both strong and flexible, so it protects your home from sun, wind, rain, mildew, heat, and even ground movement.
The Nature of Exterior Paint
Painting your home exterior gives you the opportunity to express your style and bring out the best in your home’s looks. You can boost curb appeal and increase home value by painting. The problem is that you will need to paint again in roughly 4-6 years.
Paint fades, chips, wears out, and decreases in its ability to provide a protective coating to your home. If you have wood siding, you may even see wood rot crop up just underneath your paint. Mold and mildew are not uncommon due to moisture penetration beneath your paint. Paint can also blister, dimming the look of your home exterior.
While it’s great to have the opportunity to give your home a facelift every 4-6 years by repainting it, you’re faced with a huge job that either costs you lots of time in addition to the paint and materials—or you have to hire someone to repaint your home—which is a large expense. Paint even allows heat to enter your home, and isn’t cost-effective due to the frequency with which you have to repaint. Why not set yourself up for success and consider texture coating, and you’ll never have to paint again!
Texture Coating 101
Texture coating is multiple times thicker than regular home exterior paint. It’s made from polymers, acrylic, and other materials that contribute to its extreme durability. You get the benefits of the latest technology by choosing texture coating. It takes multiple steps to complete the process, but when you have it installed, you never have to paint again!
How Texture Coating Is Different Than Paint
Texture coating resists moisture penetration so you can skip the hassles involved in repairing wood rot, mold and mildew in your home siding. While paint allows heat to invade your home, energy-saving texture coating keeps your house cool, making it more comfortable throughout the year.
Here are some of the fabulous facts about texture coating and how it outperforms exterior paint.
1. Boost Your Energy Savings
If you’re wondering if texture coating will help your home stay cooler, the answer is yes! You can actually boost your home’s energy efficiency with texture coating. Its reflective nature helps keep your home interior cool and comfortable.
2. Enjoy Color Retention
Maintain the gorgeous color of your home with the help of texture coating. It reflects UV rays and keeps your home exterior’s color from fading. The startling truth is that once texture coating is applied to your home, you don’t have to paint it ever again.
3. Appreciate the Low Maintenance of Texture Coating
There is no maintenance needed once your texture coating is applied. You’ll not only save on home siding or stucco maintenance and repairs, but also save time because you don’t have to repaint it.
4. Protect the Environment
Texture coating protects your home without harming the environment. It’s considered a “green” coating, and makes your home more energy-efficient.
5. Get an Outstanding Warranty
Texture coating is guaranteed against peeling, chipping, flaking, and cracking, so you can rest assured your home is well protected.
6. Stand up to Weather Elements
If you’re tired of seeing your home exterior’s paint chip, and you’re ready to coat your home with a protective layer that preserves your home in spite of the elements, it’s time to install texture coating. If you notice your home exterior paint fading over time and looking lackluster, texture coating can ensure that doesn’t happen again. If your home has faded unevenly and the color looks inconsistent throughout it, texture coating is your answer.
7. Boost Your Home’s Resale Value
Your curb appeal will increase with texture coating, and it will continue looking gorgeous for years to come! Your home exterior will actually look new for decades!
8. End Stucco’s Limitless Repair Needs
Texture coating bridges hairline cracks and seals your stucco so you won’t have the moisture penetration problems you had in the past, and you can avoid the challenges of constant repair needs.
9. Save Money with Texture Coating
Texture coating keeps your home exterior paint’s vibrant color intact. It also lowers your energy consumption by an average of 22% during hot summers. It will save you from the need to repaint your home multiple times over the years. If you live in your home 30 years, you may need to repaint it up to 8 times! Texture coating saves you the cost and the hassle of repainting—repeatedly!
