Textured Coatings of America gets top green building award

By Tim Wright

Published July 15, 2009
Textured Coatings of America (Texcote), a manufacturer of specialty coatings for residential and commercial buildings, has been named the "Top Green Coating Project" by the Journal of Architectural Coatings.

The designation came as a result of applying Texcote's energy efficient COOLWALL coating system to the Lake Mary, FL, office building of Burke, Hogue, & Mills Associates Inc., an architectural firm that specializes in sustainable design. COOLWALL Textured Primer and COOLWALL SUPER-COTE were applied to the exterior of the facility and reduced the building's energy demand by up to 21%. This helped Burke, Hogue, & Mills achieve LEED Silver status from the U.S. Green Building Council.

In choosing COOLWALL, the Journal of Architectural Coatings considered the product's ability to reduce carbon emissions, performance and the product and building's lifecycle.

COOLWALL incorporates heat reflective technology that reflects the sun's infrared energy and UV radiation, lowering wall surface temperatures by as much as 40-degrees Fahrenheit even with the application of a dark-colored coating. The U.S. Energy Department's Oak Ridge National Laboratory has found that the technology can cut a home's cooling-related energy costs by 22%. The technology is available in more than 570 colors and also helps to protect homes and building walls from severe weather storms, including hurricanes
