Do You Know the True Cost of Painting Your Home?
Real estate and construction experts say that your home’s exterior should be painted at least every 7 years to maintain and protect your investment. Over time those costs become a significant drain on your finances.
When assuming a 3% inflation rate, take a look at your potential costs, over time, of painting, and re-painting your home:
|# of Years||3-Bedroom Home||4-Bedrooms Home||4-Bedrooms Home w/Dec|
|Now||$9,800 – $12,600||$11,500 – $14,800||$12,500 – $15,800|
|7||$12,000 – $15,050||$13,730 – $17,675||$14,925 – $18,865|
|14||$14,325 – $17,970||$16,395 – $21,100||$17,825 – $22,525|
|21||$17,100 – $21,450||$19,575 – $25,195||$21,285 – $26,895|
|Total||$53,225 – $67,070||$61,200 – $78,770||$66,535 – $84,085|
Now add in the “hidden costs” of time, disruption and mess and the cycle of painting your home becomes a huge burden.
Over the course of your home’s lifetime, you could invest anywhere between $53K – $84K just to keep your home well maintained and looking it’s best. Or you could choose to use TEX•COTE® COOLWALL®, an exterior coating alternative, and never need to paint your home again.
In addition to the energy savings, TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® features a full palette of beautiful colors to enhance any home style.
No More Painting Needed when you Switch to TEX•COTE® Exterior Coating.
TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® systems offer homeowners one of today’s most reliable and beautiful solutions to protecting their home’s exterior. Not only is TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® 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. Lower exterior temperatures can lead to lower interior temperatures. A study conducted by the U. S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory showed that TEX•COTE® COOLWALL® coatings can reduce a home’s cooling costs by as much as 21.9%*!
* Percentage of savings are based on the DOE study which showed savings ranging from 4.2-21.9%. Percentage of cooling costs and surface temperature reductions will vary based on color chosen, geographical location, climate condition, and substrate type. In some climates, there may be a heating penalty. See DOE supporting data for more information.
