The Genuine Process

« Return to The TEX•COTE® Process Page

Genuine TEX•COTE® products can only be applied by authorized TEX•COTE® dealers specially trained to prepare your home’s surface and apply the coating. This controlled multi-step process ensures that the product is applied appropriately to provide maximum protection and beauty for the life of your home. Here is what the process involves:

1. Inspection    2. Trenching   3. Water Blasting/ Sanding & Scraping
   

We completely inspect the outside walls of your home for deterioration and suspect areas.

 

We trench around your home. The trenching will help eliminate foundation decay and prevent moisture intrusion once the Genuine TEX•COTE® products are applied.



Your entire house is water blasted to remove loose paint, dirt, stains, foreign substances, mold, mildew, and algae. Your home is then sanded and scraped to remove any additional loose and built up paint and debris. Once cleaned, areas in need of patching are revealed.
4. Repair/Patch 5. Masking 6. Primer Applied
   

Deteriorated areas are patched with specially formulated patching and bonding materials to correct defects and create a sound and uniform surface area.


All doors, windows, landscaping and surfaces not to be coated are carefully covered to prevent overspray and provide the most professional-looking job possible.

 

Our thick TEX•COTE® primer is applied to your home’s exterior.
7. Finish Coat Applied
8. TRIM•COTE® Applied
   

A thick coating of our special Genuine TEX∙COTE® smooth or textured finish is applied. This finish chemically "fuses" itself to the primer for a second line of defense against the elements.

Once the surface is coated, all trim areas are covered with a specially formulated, highly protective trim paint.
