Did you know that southern California homeowners need to paint their homes every three years to prevent water and termite damage to their homes? Plus, since we get lots of sunshine, the colors of our homes fade rather quickly. Fortunately, there’s a heat-resistant paint technology on the market that not only provides southern Californian homes with superior protection elements and longer color vibrancy, but also lower energy bills. In today’s blog, we will be going over what heat-resistant exterior wall paint is and how it can benefit you.

What is Heat-Resistant Exterior Wall Paint?

Have you ever stood near a window on a hot summer day and felt the immense heat passing through the window? The very same intense rays are hitting your home’s exterior walls all day long. Believe it or not, the heat eventually passes through your walls, thus causing your home’s interior to get hot as well. Fortunately, with the help of heat-resistant exterior wall paint developed by TexCote, you can reflect the UV rays away from your home’s walls and enjoy a cooler home environment! The results will drastically improve the energy efficiency of your home.

The CoolWall Advantage

TexCote CoolWall exterior paints are not like any regular paint—this paint is designed to last a lifetime. The products used in this paint are rigorously tested in a state-of-the-art xenon weathering chamber, proving optimal performance even after 10+ years of exposed sunlight! In other words, you can enjoy hundreds of dollars in savings by reducing the constant repainting of your home! To top it off, the color will reflect heat away without losing its vibrancy. You’ll get to enjoy a gorgeous look in a wide palette of colors without having to worry about your paint peeling, chipping or flaking. The best part is that you’ll get to enjoy lower energy bills and a comfortable indoor environment.

Don’t Go with Ceramic Coating Paints

You may have heard of ceramic coating paints that proclaim to reflect the sun’s UV rays; however, TexCote CoolWall is superior to this alternate coating due to simple science. While ceramic coatings are heavier than regular paint, the thickness isn’t enough to alter the home’s insulation levels by any measure. The Department of Energy and the Federal Trade Commission have conducted studies and discovered that ceramic coating paints do not increase reflectivity. A study conducted by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory showed that TexCote Coolwall could reduce a home’s cooling costs by as much as 21.9%!

CoolWall Heat Reflective Coating

CoolWall heat reflective coating offers homeowners paint that is thicker and more durable than conventional paint. CoolWall’s breathable, waterproof coating utilizes technology that reflects the sun’s heat waves away from your home. Because CoolWall paint is water-based, it’s considered one of the most eco-friendly paint products on the market. CoolWall paint has to be applied by trained, licensed, and certified professionals as it requires a strict process to be applied correctly. The installation comes with a limited lifetime manufacturer’s warranty against peeling, chipping and flaking.

A Smart Investment

CoolWall offers homeowners a lifetime of return on investment. It last significantly longer than conventional paint, is more eco-friendly, and helps you save by:

  1. Reducing your utility bills by reducing your need for heated and cooled air
  2. Avoiding costly painting and maintenance
