Texture Coating

Why Won’t My Painting Contractor Give Me A Lifetime Warranty?
(You’re Lucky if you get a one year Warranty!)

For homeowners, painting the exterior of your home is the most common way to enhance the look of your home…but at what expense? Most homeowners don’t know that painting the exterior stucco of your home is not the correct way to protect your house from the elements or make it energy efficient. In fact painting over stucco will take away stucco’s natural make-up and breathability. Paint is a coating and acts like a mask.  Because of its thickness, it does not readily penetrate things that it covers and at the same time it does not allow moisture to freely pass thru which eventually causes stucco damage and wood rot to the sheathing or framing and water vapor may even be pulled into the house.

The other problem is that paint does not have the same characteristics and durability it had 30 years.  In fact petroleum based paints (which was a great protector of wood) is no longer legal to use on the exterior of homes and water based paints just do not provide enough protection for your home.  So what’s the solution?


Permanent Solution

As a homeowner you have two solutions. You can either re-stucco every 10 to 12 years (which can be a time consuming and messy endeavor) or you can texture coat with TEX-COTE®.  Texture coating (Tex-cote from Texture Coatings of America) is quickly becoming the most popular and affordable way to protect and upgrade the exterior of your home. Genuine TEX•COTE® (also known as Texture Coating) products are found on some of today's most prestigious buildings, landmarks and homes throughout the world. Founded 1961, Textured Coatings of America conducts ongoing research and development in an effort to led the way to countless industry advancements including "GREEN" products that reduce energy usage, and coating systems that last through 40 years of exposure.

What will TEX-COTE DO?

Beautify and Protect

Imperfections and cracks to stucco are patched, primed and covered by a THICK and BEAUTIFUL Tex-cote finish that will make your home look like new. Wood areas that are damaged will be replaced and along with non-damaged wood will be primed and covered by THINK and BEAUTIFUL Super-cote finish.  The finishes are guaranteed to resist, deterioration, cracking and peeling and will eliminate to need for costly repainting and maintenance.

Weatherproof, Efficient and Durable

TEX-COTE is designed perfectly for the California environment. The homes in California experience one of the most stressful environments because of the large swings in temperatures, dryness & humidity, winds, fires, and ground movement.

Built-in toughness and flexibility make TEX - COTE provides a weather shield to protect your home from sun, winds, rain (withstand 98 mph wind driven rain), mildew, heat and house movement because of TEX-COTE flexibility properties. All these features will keep the “brand new” look for your home for years and years.

Not only is TEX•COTE® SUPER•COTE™ 10 times thicker on average than ordinary paint, it also contains special reflective pigments - the same type of pigments used by the U.S. government to cool ships, and provide both reflectivity and reduced radar signature in Stealth bombers. Due to their ability to reflect light, these pigments can lower surface temperatures by as much as 40-degrees Fahrenheit, when compared to traditional paints and coatings in many colors. This reduction in heat could provide important energy savings for homeowners. In fact, the energy savings could be so significant that the U.S. government has commissioned a study to determine just how much energy can be saved by using the TEX•COTE® SUPER•COTE™ system. It is the only product like it being tested. In addition to the energy savings, TEX•COTE® SUPER•COTETM features a full palette of beautiful colors to enhance any home style.

Designed to inhibit growth of fungus and mildew spores.  Mildewcide is added directly into the TEX-COTE materials so you will never have to worry about fungus or mildew again.
