The magazine’s series of sponsored e-books continues with an analysis of exterior coatings systems.
As buildings and structures age, their exteriors can garner a lackluster appearance. Time and environmental conditions take a toll, and what was a once-vibrant exterior becomes faded and degraded. In this situation, owners, architects, and specifiers may be tempted to replace façade materials with new, factory-fresh materials—a costly, time-consuming endeavor. Instead, they should consider an exterior restoration using a field-applied coating.
Field-applied exterior coatings can help eliminate the expense and business disruptions associated with removing and replacing structures or façade materials. The right exterior coating could provide the same type of performance associated with its factory-applied counterparts; it can also often be custom color-matched to align a building’s exterior with branded or organizational color identities.
An article in our newest sponsored e-book stresses the need for proper surface preparation techniques to ensure the success of an exterior coatings project. It appears along with a trio of other articles from the pages of The Construction Specifier in “Protecting Façades with Architectural Coatings,” a free, downloadable resource.
