The Best Types of Exterior Coatings for California Homes
For a modern California home, metal can be a unique, attractive, and low maintenance home exterior material. Metal home exteriors are naturally attractive and do not need to be painted, stained, or otherwise coated. Depending on the type of metal you choose, costs can be low or high. Options that are guaranteed to last decades and require little to no maintenance include corrugated steel, a cheaper option, and copper, a costly and attractive choice.
