Protecting Homes From the Summer Sun

Although Southern California is known for its great weather, sometimes those sunny skies aren’t always good for your home’s exterior. Here at All American Design, we’ve noticed that more and more consumers are moving towards advanced coating services and solutions that can help protect their homes from whatever the climate throws at them.

 

Staying Cool

Our region is famous for all the sun we receive—and for our hot summers. In many cases, traditional stucco coatings will absorb heat and trap it inside the building, making the occupants much less comfortable. This also means that the air conditioning has to work harder to keep the home at a tolerable temperature, consuming a great deal of energy. This is bad for the environment and bad for homeowners’ electric bills. Many residents are now seeking special coatings that reflect the heat away from the home, increasing comfort, decreasing cost, and improving energy efficiency.

 

Preserving Color

The other problem with all that sun is that it can cause the exterior of the home to discolor. The UV rays in sunlight can cause the pigment in traditional stucco to fade or yellow, leaving a once-beautiful home as a stained mess in just a few years. Increasing numbers of homeowners are seeking treated coatings that will not lose their color.

Our professional coating services at All American Design allow residents to protect their home from the sun both through the summer and year-round. If you’re one of those homeowners who is seeking an advanced coating solution, call us today at (866) 950 9123.
