Have you been looking into adding vinyl siding to your home because you are tired of replacing fascia boards so often? What would benefit you most TEX-COTE® COOLWALL Exterior Coating or Vinyl Siding? We have to admit, at first glance, there are some attractive benefits to adding vinyl siding to your home.
- Vinyl siding is available in multiple colors. However, the vinyl colors will lose their vibrance and fade over time.
- Most vinyl siding products carry a lifetime warranty, so you don’t have to worry about repairing the damage out of pocket any time soon.
- Vinyl siding is waterproof, so you don’t have to think about water damage and leaks that come with rotten wood.
- Sometimes homeowners think that their wood is unrepairable, and they go for vinyl siding as a last resort to save their house from structural damage.
The question we would like to ask is, are you fully satisfied with this decision? Many times the answer is no, and the reasons are that vinyl siding looks outdated. It does not match California landscapes, and it covers up the natural beauty of your home. In addition, vinyl siding does not offer any energy efficiency. It lets the heat go right through your walls and allows the warmed air to escape in wintertime.
TEX-COTE® COOLWALL Exterior Coating vs. Vinyl Siding
Have you ever considered that there might be a solution that will check all the boxes without having to settle for less? At California Showcase Construction, we offer an exterior coating product by TexCote called CoolWall. TEX-COTE® COOLWALL offers a lot of benefits without the issues that come with vinyl siding.
Reduces Energy Costs
The heat-resistant nature of Tex-Cote is perfect for California homeowners looking for an energy-efficient coating trying to reduce their energy costs. TEX-COTE® COOLWALL is capable of reducing the surface temperature it is installed on by up to forty degrees Fahrenheit, thus allowing for energy savings of up to 21%.
Fade Resistant Qualities
TEX-COTE® COOLWALL coating includes Fade Block™ Protection which makes the coating fade resistant and highly durable. The coating helps the house maintain its curb appeal for many years, and if applied correctly, it will last for a very long time. No more painting your house every few years, as you would have with paint.
No peeling, chipping, or flaking.
In addition, the coating does not easily peel, flake or chip, and it stands up really well under varying weather conditions, from humid to piping hot.
Preserves Your Wood and Stucco
TEX-COTE® COOLWALL can help you repair your wood and preserve it for years to come. However, it is not just wood that gets preserved with the exterior coating. Your stucco will also benefit from exterior coating instead of being covered by vinyl siding.
The product comes with a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty if it is applied correctly by factory-trained applicators.
What Should I Select for My Home?
Ultimately, the decision comes down to what you believe is acceptable for your home and your energy goals. Homeowners in high heat areas, with homes beside the sea, or in areas with unpredictable weather changes will enjoy a greater advantage with Tex-Cote.
