As a homeowner, you’re probably always thinking of ways to improve your home. When you finally make the choice to upgrade your home, it can be both an exciting and demanding time; researching companies, getting quotes, and figuring out payments can be very overwhelming. Once you finally find a company that promises quality work for a price you’re willing to pay, you expect to have the value and commitment you’ve paid for and to be happy with the end results, right? Unfortunately for homeowners in Pasadena, CA, this was not the case. About 20 years ago, the residents of this home paid a company to have heat-reflective paint applied to their home. Six months after the job was done, however, the paint began to chip and peel, and years later, the company that was hired, went out of business for selling knock off and defective products, so no one was available to uphold the warranty. As you could imagine, it was not easy for this family to find and trust another contracting company to get the right texcote coolwall that this family was seeking.

Finally, years later, after months of interviewing five different companies, these homeowners decided that Family Home Improvements was the best choice to provide them with the texcote coolwall that they were looking for. Compared to their competitors, Family Home Improvements offered the best price, warranty and some of the best customer service that this family had come across. To ensure that they made the right decision, the homeowners checked out previous work that Family Home Improvements had done and were pleasantly surprised with the amount of detail that was put into the other homes that we’ve worked on. Family Home Improvements were happy to give these homeowners the results that they had previously hoped to have.

This lovely home was in need of a major update. The paint all over the house was peeling and there were wood panels on the sides of the windows and brick around the bottom of the house making it look outdated. There was also a window on the second story that was no longer desired by the homeowners. Before applying the new texcote coolWall, the Family Home Improvements crew removed all of the wood panels and brick from around the home as well as the undesired window. They then spent about 70 percent of the time priming the house before applying the texcote coolwall onto the home to ensure that this time it would be done correctly and that the homeowners would not have to worry about ever being let down and disappointed again. While weather was a factor in completing this project (due to wind and rain), the Family Home Improvements team took necessary precautions to push back the time it would normally take to complete this type of service, in order to be sure that there were no mistakes to be made.

The texcote coolwall was painted evenly around the home including the garage so that it would match the rest of the house. There was a custom foam frame created and placed around the windows and painted a beautiful teal color which helped to make the house appear more modern. The garage door was also painted this teal color and brought back to life and Family Home Improvements made sure that the gutters and rot on the house was cleared away. In the
end, the homeowners were so happy and grateful, not only because of the quality texcote coolwall that they received, but because of the outstanding detail and care that was shown to them by Family Home Improvements.

So what is texcote coolwall and how do you know if you’re getting the real thing? Texcote coolwall, which is manufactured by Texcote of America, is a heat-reflective exterior paint that helps to keep direct sunlight away from the home while maintaining a comfortable indoor temperature. Texcote coolwall is ideal for homes that are exposed to constant heat which makes it a perfect option for homeowners looking to update their current exterior paint. One way to ensure that your contractor is using verified texcote coolwall is to make sure that the contractor is a licensed dealer of Texcote of America.

On the day of application, be sure to notice the “Texcote of America” sticker that will be on the paint container. This is the best way to know that the product you’re receiving is authentic and to avoid a texcote nightmare. Texcote coolwall is a wonderful option for your home, and like this Pasadena family, you can be sure that you will receive the best service and quality from Family Home Improvements, since we only use highly experienced painters to ensure that you get the value and excellence that you deserve for your home.

About Us

A Five-Star Company


These guys are awesome. They did a coating on my house called “Texcote”. I love it. My house has never looked better. The crew was great. They were Clean on time and very nice, and after they finished, Renzo himself came back to do an inspection and check to see if I was happy. Not many companies do that. I thought that was great. Definitely will recommend them, and I will use them from now on for all my home improvement needs.
