The Texture Coating Process in 10 Steps

photodune-2551144-number-ten-xsTexture coating is an excellent option for your home’s exterior if you want to provide maximum protection against the elements and beautify your home for years to come. Take a look at the controlled, 10-step process involved in applying textured coating.

1. Inspection

During a thorough inspection, technicians look for chipping, flaking or peeling paint, rotten wood, and other signs of wall deterioration. Any unsatisfactory conditions must be repaired before the process can continue.

2. Trenching

Technicians dig a trench around the exterior walls to prevent moisture intrusion and help eliminate foundation decay once the texture coating is applied.

3. Masking

All doors, windows, landscaping and sidewalks are covered to prevent the coating from getting on these surfaces. This step ensures a professional-looking finished product.

4. Water Blasting

Workers blast the entire exterior with a high-pressure water spray to remove paint, dirt, stains, mold, mildew and other foreign substances.

5. Scraping and sanding

This step removes any residual buildup that withstands the water blast. By removing remaining paint and debris, damaged areas are revealed.

6. Patch and repair

Deteriorated areas discovered during the scraping and sanding process are patched and repaired. Special patching and bonding materials correct defects and establish a smooth, uniform surface for the texture coating to be applied.

7. Elastomeric primer

Technicians apply a textured primer to all exterior walls. This provides a protective layer to the home’s exterior surface so it can endure prolonged exposure to the elements. The primer is carefully inspected for uniform application before moving on to the next step.

8. Textured coating

The final coat goes over the primer and chemically bonds to it. This texture coating provides your home’s final color and helps reflect heat from the sun’s rays. It also acts as a second line of defense against the elements. In all, the installation supplies a 13- to 18-millimeter-thick, armor-like barrier around your home.

9. Trim application 

With the walls completely coated, workers go back and apply a specially formulated trim paint with highly protective qualities. This contributes to the beauty and durability of your home’s exterior.

10. Clean up

The workers remove all masking and clean the windows of coating splatters. They also clean up discarded coating material, rags and other construction waste so you’re left with a beautiful, professional end product.

The texture coating process is pretty straightforward, but it requires the practiced hands of a professional to end up looking just right. For answers to your remaining questions, or to begin the textured coating process, please contact us online or call us at 818-483-3531.
