With TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® systems, the exterior of your home can be both beautiful and functional. Durable, fade-resistant TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® exterior coatings contain highly advanced reflective pigments that can lower surface temperatures by as much as 40 degrees Fahrenheit when compared to traditional paints and coatings. Lower exterior temperatures mean lower interior temperatures, and that leads to lower home cooling costs. In fact, a study by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory shows that TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® coatings can reduces your home cooling costs by as much as 21.9 percent.
Even with all this substance, TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® systems have plenty of style. These exterior coatings are available in a full palette of beautiful colors to complement any architectural style.
Durability, energy efficiency and curb appeal. What more could you ask of your home’s exterior coating? Contact Makeover Max today to find out more.
