How Texture Coatings Make Your Home Energy Efficient
California weather is famous for its high temperature swings, humidity fluctuations, fires and ground movement. No exterior covering is better equipped to handle such a harsh environment than texture coating.
The high-quality finish produces an end product with a longer service life and better durability than other siding materials. Texture coating has built-in toughness and flexibility to shield your home from sun, wind, rain, mildew, heat, ground movement and anything else Mother Nature can throw at it.
The long-lasting beauty and protection comes with no maintenance required. One reason this is possible is because the coating reflects the very UV rays that fade colors after prolonged exposure. Once textured coating is applied, you will never need to repaint your home again, saving you thousands of dollars in painting costs over the life of your home.
Capable of Decreasing Your Energy Bills
Not only can textured coating stand up to the elements, but it can also lower your energy bills. Picture a hot, California afternoon. The sun beats down on your home. If the exterior walls are covered with ordinary paint, they may absorb as much as 90% of the heat from the sun. Even white walls transfer much of this heat to the interior, which makes your air conditioner work harder to keep you comfortable.
Thanks to a special reflective pigment found in textured coating, it’s able to reflect the sun’s rays and lower surface temperatures by as much as 40 degrees. This makes a big difference when it comes to keeping the interior of your home cool. In fact, the US Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory states textured coating can reduce cooling costs by up to 21.9%!
When you cut back on your energy consumption, you’re not just saving money. You’re also doing your part to slow global warming and reduce our nation’s dependence on fossil fuels.
In addition, the coating itself is considered “green” because the formulation incorporates post-industrial recycled content. Textured coating is the perfect solution for protecting your home without harming environment.
