The New Generation of Exterior CoatingsBy Cutter Slagle | | Home Improvements |
If you’re getting ready to add some color to the drab exterior of your home, then you could do well from learning about the benefits of exterior coatings. You already know how important it is to be environment-friendly, from conserving energy to avoiding the use of certain toxic products. However, what do you know about using energy efficient paint?
Discover how – and why – you can not only make your home stand out, but also add value to it and your property.
The Benefits of New Exterior Coatings
Not matter how you look at it, home design can be expensive. Consider flooring, furniture, and kitchen counters – these items add up. You want to get the most for your money, right? Not to mention, you want to save as much time as possible. Painting the house may be a fun process (well, the completed task is nicer than the actual labor part), but it’s also quite time consuming when it comes to maintenance.
First and foremost, it’s imperative to protect the outside of your living space. Technologically advanced exterior coatings can help to provide an extra barrier that will ultimately shield surfaces from grit, grime, and other unwanted substances. This coat can also be used to avoid the effects of bad weather. Typically 10 to 20 times thicker than ordinary exterior paint, new products are water repellent and some – like TexCote® products – provide Class A fire protection.
One of the biggest benefits to using the latest generation of exterior paint, is the fact that it can help you save on your energy bills. By reflecting solar heat, it can bring down cooling costs considerably.
There’s Even More!
As mentioned, not many have the time, energy, or resources to paint the outside of their home multiple times. Most consumers enjoy the fact that energy efficient paint is long lasting. In fact, depending on the specific product you choose to use, the paint on your home could last for multiple years.
The right exterior coating not only hides the little imperfections of the home, but it also protects as it is also resistant to mold and other types of mildew. This is important, as mildew can affect your home’s value. Also, you’ll have no trouble washing your home, which will help to keep it looking even more beautiful. Beware of choosing a paint or product that easily chips or cracks.
The Best for You
Make your home stand out with the use of energy efficient paints. You want to be proud of your house, and ensure it gives you a sense of satisfaction. As well, you never know if or when you’re going to get an itch to sell. Therefore, it’s important to make sure that the outside (remember, it’s what buyers notice first) is in the best condition possible.
