WEST SACRAMENTO – Traditionally, most residential home exteriors consist of painted wood siding (or, in some cases, stucco). However, thanks to recent innovations in home construction technology, there are now products available that improve upon these conventional materials.
Fiber cement siding
An alternative to traditional wood siding, fiber cement siding bears the appearance of wood while providing a superior level of performance. Because it’s noncombustible, impervious to moisture and doesn’t attract termites, fiber cement eliminates many of the common issues experienced with wood siding. Furthermore, its performance is guaranteed, with manufacturers like James Hardie offering warranties of up to 30 years.
COOLWALL® exterior coating
COOLWALL exterior coating is an alternative to painting your home exterior. This product has a couple of unique attributes that differentiate it from conventional paint. One is its superior water resistance, which stops exterior water from penetrating and allows any vapors or moisture that build up behind the coating to escape. COOLWALL is also heat-resistant: it reflects infrared energy from the sun and reduces indoor temperatures. In addition to these performance attributes, COOLWALL is available in a wide range of colors and textures, and it can be applied to a variety of exterior surface types.
