What’s a better way to give your house a new look than to paint it all in a new color? Let us help you give a new light to your house with the right color. Your Prime Contractor provides professional exterior painting whether your paint is starting to pill and you want to put a new layer on it, or you want to redo the whole exterior with a new color. You can choose whether you want to use regular paint, which will add color to your house, or use tex-cote to make your house more energy efficient.
SO WHAT EXACTLY IS TEX-COTE?
Tex-cote, or texture coating, is a different way to paint your house rather than the regular paint. It is much more energy efficient than regular paint. We recommend our customers to use tex-coating for several reasons:
- Unlike paint, tex-cote is waterproof, which means you can wash the dirt off your walls without worrying about mold.
- As we mentioned before, it is very energy efficient. While paint absorbs about 90% of the sunlight, tex-cote provides a thicker barrier. In other words, regular paint will absorb the heat from the sun and will make your AC and other appliances work harder, while tex-cote will block the sunray and help you save more than 20% on your monthly bills.
- While paint can pill and chip, with tex-cote all you need to do when it soils is to wash it over with a little water pressure.
- Living in California means that you always need to be prepared for the next earthquake. Even though earthquakes can cause cracks in regular paint, the thickness of tex-cote will protect your wall and you won’t have to worry about repainting the walls after an earthquake.
