While we should never judge a book by its cover, the simple fact of the matter is that the exterior of a home or an office will have a massive impact upon its overall visual appeal. Still, beauty is more than skin deep. Modern exterior wall coatings are associated with a wealth of interesting benefits and some are more apparent than others. What are the main benefits and how can these dramatically impact your property?
Keeping Moisture at Bay
One advantage of a damp proof exterior wall coating is that it can provide a powerful barrier between the interior of a home and high levels of moisture. If this dampness were otherwise allowed to penetrate, it could result in a great deal of damage. These coatings offer a cost-effective method to prevent such occurrences.
Another advanced feature of these exterior surface coatings is that they are equipped with the ability to allow moisture to escape from interior of a structure. This unique attribute helps to ensure that the outside environment is kept at bay while the contents of your home are not subject to high levels of moisture.
Eliminating Mould, Bacteria and Algae
It should also be mentioned that exterior coatings are resistant to the formation of mould, bacteria and algae. This is important for a number of reasons. First, such organisms can be unsightly and there are also times when they can be quite difficult to remove without using harsh chemicals. The health aspect should also be mentioned. By preventing the buildup of mould, the chances of airborne illnesses are dramatically reduced. This is particularly relevant if young children or pets are present.
There are times when low-grade exterior wall coatings will require a significant amount of regular maintenance. Not only can this represent a decidedly inconvenient situation, but the need to apply additional layers might result in a rather costly situation over time. Thanks to cutting-edge formulations, the materials provided by Treatex are formulated to last. This helps to ensure longevity alongside a beauty that will last for years at a time. Such benefits are not always possible to achieve through the use of generic products and services.
A Flexible Number of Unique Design Options
Matching the existing decor of a home or office is always a concern. Another interesting advantage associated with this line of exterior coatings is that they are available in a kaleidoscope of hues, colours and textures. It is therefore easy to achieve a seamless appearance while simultaneously enhancing the visual ambience of any property. It might also be possible to request custom-made formulations so that an exact match can be achieved in no time at all.
Covering Cracks and Imperfections
Some wall coatings are rather thin and as a result, they are not able to address imperfections or cracks within a wall. This will inevitably allow water to penetrate and once again, expensive repairs could need to take place over time. The professional-grade wall coatings offered by Treatex are specifically formulated to deal with such situations. Not only will you be provided with superior levels of protection, but the walls themselves can once again be restored to their original beauty.
The Real Estate Edge
One of the lesser-known advantages associated with a damp proof exterior wall coating involves the amount of value that it can add to an existing property. Of course, this partially arises from its decidedly functional nature. You can rest assured that your possessions will remain safe and that the structure will not need to undergo expensive repairs caused by damp in the home. In the same respect, the aesthetic appeal of these coatings is a great way to increase the value of your property. So, a healthy return on investment (ROI) is much closer than you think. If you plan on selling the property in the future, the ability to list a damp-proof exterior coating as one of the existing amenities is an excellent way to attract buyers. Regardless of your intentions, the fact of the matter is that any damp-proof exterior wall coating will pay for itself over time.
