Our installation manager
comes to your home to check the existing stucco for chipping, flaking,
peeling, deterioration, and structural or hairline cracks.
On final measure, the installation manager reviews all aspects of
products that were originally requested. If there are any changes
of customer or customer requests, they are made now and signed off
and at that time the order will be immediately submitted for production.
The installer digs a
4-6 inch deep trench around your home to ensure that when the Tex-Cote™
is applied, it goes further down than ground level.
Removal of old stucco and moisture measurement
The installer uses a
high-powered water blaster, a wire brush, and a scraper to thoroughly
remove any loose surfaces from the home. He will then measure the
amount of moisture in the walls. Moisture is a major impediment
to the Tex-Cote installation; so all measures must be taken to ensure
a low or non-existent amount of moisture.
Patch and Repair
The removal of the old
stucco causes an uneven surface. Tex-Cote must be applied on a smooth
surface. The installer will spot prime and patch the walls with
Tex-Bond to make as smooth a wall as possible.
The installer will then
cover all the shrubs, trees, and gardens near your home to protect
them from the Tex-Cote. Masking tape will be applied to all other
surfaces to protect them from any stray sprays.
A coat of Tex-Cote primer
will be applied to the entire exterior of your home intended for
Tex-Cote application. Primer adheres the Tex-Cote to the building.
The Tex-Cote is finally
applied. Several different finish styles can be applied to conform
to your standards.
You can trim your home
with Trim-Cote™. This attractive alternative to paint is much
thicker and will last much longer than any paint will. The installer
will scrape, sand, patch, glaze, and prime your trim before he applies
The job site foreman
will inspect the Tex-Cote application with the homeowner. Upon your
complete satisfaction, you will be asked to sign a completion certificate
and check off sheet.
